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.

Flower pictures.............

I do love to take pictures of flowers. I like them all, the ones in my garden or the wild flowers or those that grow in other peoples gardens. I just love flowers. This is a new Lilac to my garden, its two years old now and is settled in and growing.

Then again, multi colours are just awesome. The little garden in Frankfort that the garden club take care of is pretty. It has a small pond and little stone pathway. In some ways it reminds me of some of the English parks with the little walkways and hidden pond. On a very very small scale.

Its been too hot for me to work in my garden. It needs attention now. Weeding and thinning out things. Supposed to have a few cool days this coming week. I can only hope. I got some blocks from Laura and want to put those on the patio around the pond and next to the garden to define weeks projects maybe. Got loads of ideas. Then next weekend we get our new door in I hope. I also hope he gets it all done because then I get to change the room around and get a new cupboard maybe. I love rearranging things.

Thanks for sharing the beautiful photos today. Our weather has been changing back and forth between beautiful/cooler and hot/humid. I'm trying to finish off the kitchen on the nicer days so I can get back to crafting!

Good Morning Janice, I thought I'd repay your visit to my space. You have a lovely garden, and you're like me favouring the pink & blue flowers. I'm always drawn to their cool shades for summer I think. I'm now following along to watch your garden through the seasons. Wendy x

Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.

Sri Gita Govinda
-A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna

Govinda Lilamrta
-An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna

Ananda Vrindavan Campu
-This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.

Asta Kaliya Lila Version 1
-8 verses describing Radha and Krishna's eternal daily pastimes

Asta Kaliya Lila Version 2
-A slightly different version of 8 verses that describes Radha and Krishna's eternal daily pastimes

Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love

And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

The Meeting in the Box

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

And lastly, we have a very amazing scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49

Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:

The above book can also be read on your PC using Amazon Kindle for PC, download here for free:

ISKCON, or "The Hare Krishna Movement" as it's popularily known, is a radical and extremist distortion of the original Radha and Krishna dharma from ancient India. The author of the above book Bhavanasara Sangraha is no longer affiliated with ISKCON either, having cut all ties to ISKCON a few years ago.
