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.

Today in the garden.................

Not a lot going on out there today. It was very cold though. I put out table scraps for who ever may want them. Last night I saw two big rabbits out there. I hope they come back tonight because I threw out some brussel sprouts, cooked but hey, maybe they will eat them. If not there are possums and other critters that I know come around. Bad picture, it was dark and I could not see the settings

My Crow came by for bread.

He also sat on the roof of our garage to finish a snack, that way he can put some of his stash down on the roof. Here he is leaving before going down for 2nds

This guy is eating some bacon fat. I let it sit in the pan to set and then scraped it out and put it on the rail where it froze. Sort of, anyway, the birds need fat right now. This guy likes the bacon flavour apparently.

I can not wait until I can begin a clean up operation. I dread to think what it will be like out there when the snow melts. Yeuk!!!!I am hoping the Starlings come in and clean it up.

They do try. This poor fella was sitting on one foot while trying to warm the other. I want to put out a heating pad for them.
I will be watching for bunnies tonight

It has been so cold for a long time this winter. Today we're sitting at -18C, but it's still early. I love that shot of the cute chickadee! Seeing that photo made me realize I have never got a good shot of a chickadee. They're awfully quick! I've not had much activity at my feeders this year (disappointing), although I've put out quite an assortment of mixed seeds, black sunflower seeds, niger seeds & suet with seeds in the log feeder. Just a lot of mourning doves, sparrows and a few chickadees. I think the rabbits come here in the night and enjoy the scatterings across the ground. I have to watch my dog because he's such a mooch and licks up anything edible he can reach. Wendy x
