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.

One of my favourite garden flowers.........the Daylily. I like it becaue it comes in all shapes and sizes. The colour range is incredible. So this page will be mainly pictures of some in my garden and some I have seen in other places.
These are from my garden. The deep pink one was one I got last year

The white one is not mine, its a lovely creamy white and I think I will look to add that to my collection.

This yellow beauty was out in Alden and I want one........I will have to actually go to a greenhouse I think. Maybe ordering one from a catalogue. Has anyone done that? What are the results, do they do well? I am a bit wary about catalogues because they are usually really whimpy specimens and do they actually grow????

I will have more blooming soon. I am not sure what still has to come out but they make my garden much more interesting and I will never think twice now about buying more.

I'm thinking of adding some more to where my oranges ones are, or possibly even some iris. My lilies are very tall though and require tomato cages around them so they don't fall over. Do you know if there are other, shorter varieties?

Gorgeous photos ;o) We have lilies too ;o) I have bought from the magazines and I wouldn't do it again. They have a good warranty, but the plants come with just roots, no growth! LOL! Big Hugs ;o)

Beautiful lilies! There are so many nice varieties. I went to Lowes and they have a lot of asiatic lilies in right now. I think you split them up by the bulb. Nice to meet a fellow Michigander! If you go to Traverse City- visit N. Manitou Gardens if you want a variety of day lilies they have the most!

I think your lilies look stunning!
If you are going to order daylilies try Tranquil Lake Nursery in Rehoboth MA They have a great website too. This is where mine come from. I have ordered others that take 3 yrs. to bloom.
