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.

Little critters..........

I love bees. I have done a lot of posts on them. I can't help it. They are so busy and intent, they live their lives fully and at top speed. I have got some good pictures that I will share here today.

There are quite a few varieties in just my own back yard.

I see the bee with one spot on his head a lot around here. Any idea who this guy is

So pretty. The little green ones are like little jewels. This guy is a bit different I think?

More of the same, the wings are so beautiful.

Well, I must include a couple of birdie visitors because the yellow finches have not been here all summer

Then the Thrush came back.

Have not seen the Thrush all summer. Not to be confused the the junior Robin, its a different shape and size. Finally a Monarch in my garden

They must be getting ready to leave. I have not seen more than one other all summer, and that one was dying. So bon voyage to this healthy one.
