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.

Sunday Drive.............

We took a long Sunday drive. You can see it on Bluebell Woods blog. Here I will show some of the nature pictures I took. The lakes were pretty and they are just full of life. I saw this little guy up on the Dunes.

This one on a rock on the beach. I don't like bugs. I try to, but I don't

I didn't see too many birds. Just the big ones, Sandhill Cranes and Turkey. Loads of Turkey. Several Blue Heron. They are always fascinating birds. Ungainly but swift when they need to be.

There were Autumn flowers growing all around. Wild Asters. Could have come from old farms? or maybe they just grow wild. In any case they certainly do well here. Why are they so fussy in my garden?????

I saw some Monarchs wow.....they will soon be leaving for California. One had a torn wing. I doubt she will get far.

Lots of small fry in the water, tiny fish, do they live through the winter? I suppose they go deep and among the weeds. I didn't get a clear picture so wont try to show it. Lots of berries now.

The bear will enjoy some good meals before they go to sleep this winter. I think its supposed to be a long one again. Lots of Rose Hips. Should gather those but didn't
