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.

Another Spring day..................

I stayed inside today. It was over 80 and humid. Not something I can handle. I did get Gerry to dig some holes to put in the Trillium we got at the building site yesterday. I had to get those in the ground. It was just horrible out there. It rained all night, good for the garden, but being hot just made it muggy and buggy. Yeuk!!!! So I will post some pictures from yesterday.

So now I need to work on the back shade garden. I want to put the rocks back there and I want to make a bench and a planter from the logs.
My Azaleas are doing pretty well, the older ones are the biggest neadless to say. I am thinking I need to trim them up but that can also wait.

Some of the flowers are looking pretty. I forget at the moment the name of this one but it's coming along nice and last years came back up. I was expecting to see Icelandic poppies but that's not what came up.

The new Iris has continued to bloom and I do so love the colour. I will look for some pink ones I think

I am loving the lime coloured Hosta. It has done very well in pots so I will get a few more. I like them in pots because they come up quicker. They ones in the actual garden are only just popping through. This rain will do the trick though

By the time I get things the way I want the summer is gone. I love this pink colour I bought several of these little things. My mind is disfunctional tonight. Its the heat

I've just been reading this post and the previous one with all your beautiful blooms Janice! Wow! Your garden looks amazing! I really have to get in more flowering bushes to my gardens, they make such a difference. I hope you show what you make with the logs for a bench. And rocks! I love rocks, and on the weekend my husband and I visited the gardening store, and ended up walking through their rock section, it was nice to see all those big rocks ;)
