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.

Things we find in the woods.............

One of the things I love to do when we go for walks........there are so many things, but I like to look for unusual things. Not unusual in the normal sense but this for example.

Such beauty in the small things around us that most do not see, I should not generalize, I mean things we often pass by without seeing. The shape of seed pods or dried up things like this Queen Anne's lace

Fungi, always worth a second look

Some other small things we had to be careful not to step on, but they moved quickly so not too much danger there.

Such a little beauty, I was sort of surprised he was not holed up somewhere by now. I wonder when they hibernate and where.

The next little guy was making a racket until he saw that we had seen him.....

Probably storing food for winter, We are always happy to see wildlife because the kids make so much noise we imagine everyone for miles fleeing the scene. So we pay attention to detail. Even the trees are beautiful in more ways than we could imagine

This one had his eye on us..........can you see it?

The seed pods give us assurance that Spring will come again and that God will provide for us another year. In that is great beauty

We left the woodlands and were fortunate to see these guys having and evening snack in a field. We got one picture and they went silently into the trees.
