This blog is about my garden and the outdoors. I am new to photography but I am trying to show some of the pretty things that grow here in Michigan. I love the wild things who visit me and I dont mind if they eat a bit here and there. I like it more if they let me take their picture. As time goes on I think I will try to show you around the beautiful area that I live in as well as my garden. I try to use my own pictures as much as possible but will also use pictures from the web. If I inadvertently use your photo or work without permission please email me and I will remove it or give credit if you prefer. I will give credit when I know who the owner is. I would ask that anyone using my pictures do the same.
... I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.......Psalm23:6

One of my most faithful visitors all year round is the Cardinal. We have at least two pair who visit frequently. I happen to like the female most as she is a lovely combination of yellow and red. Mr Cardinal is that beautiful red, but as bright as he is, he is quite plain besides her. This is a picture I took a couple of years ago

Mr C was a bit chilly it seems. See how pretty she is? Well they have nested around here for several generations. I doubt its the same couple but their kids and their kids are certainly thriving. We keep the feeders full all year. I just dont keep the tables full.

Mr C shows up very pretty against the snow and pines. Mrs C always looks good. I just love her colours.

One time we had two couples come in. The two Mr Cs were a bit iffy about it but the ladies just got down to chowing down.

Anyway, they are beautiful birds and brighten up the winter days
