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.

A few Birdie visitors...........

Today after I did a little work in the garden, I sat on the deck and read. I had my camera and watched for birds. There had been a couple of Cardinals hanging around most of the day. I don't know if he was courting or not but while she was feeding, he was watching. Another came around and there was a sort of squabble in one of the trees, I couldn't see what was happening.

We actually had a few visitors today. The little ones had flocked together. Does this mean that winter wont be far away? I didn't get good pictures of all of them but the Titmouse, Nuthatch were hanging with the Chickadees. Mrs Cardinal was wondering where the old man had gone

I couldn't get any good ones of the little birds, they were flitting around hither and yon and the kids kept coming over or the dogs would bark........something or other. Now they are around maybe I will have more luck tomorrow.

It was a peaceful day sitting in the warm air, not too hot just right in the shade. I have not read a book in awhile I am always busy doing other things so it was nice. Everyone was happy..............

I would love a day like this to sit and take photos of the bird visitors in my yard. We have a cardinal pair, but sadly no blue jays. I do often see large flocks of blue jays migrating in September though. I've noticed the birds gathering together too. Chickadees have come back again (they usually head for the woods in the summer), and have been at the feeders. The goldfinches are gathering and the robins too.
