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.

It's here, it's here...........

That clean up time of year..........and oh what a mess it is. Gerry went outside today to do a litte raking. I swept the deck and paths. So much mud. Well, especially because Tristen has been playing out there in it. The snow broke the fences. I am actually happy about that because it means I have to do something about it. We have wanted a higher fence for a long time but could never aford it. Now we have no choice. Meanwhile things are starting to grow.

The poodles are just soooooo happy to get off the deck and recheck their territory.

Then someone came to Buds house and everyone went to check that out. We had a poodle path there but took it out.

I can not wait till all the snow is gone so all the old leaves can be raked up and the tidy up can begin.

Boots has been able to go where she wanted all winter but the poodles were confined to the poop deck. That now needs a good hose down. Next week mayb we can get that done.

This is both my favorite and unfavorite time of year, LOL. So much clean up. I like to have at least the front yard looking nice by Easter, but may not have time this week to clean inside and out. The poodles all look happy to be able to run free again!
