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.

Memorial Day weekend...........

Day one, Saturday May 23. I will have to show a few things I saw in the garden today. It needed to be watered. The frost didn't do as much damage as I dreaded. So unless we get some more I think I may be ok. I did plant the peppers and put in some Sage and something else (I forget) I have some seeds for kale and something else. (I forget) Its been a busy day, so my memory not so good.
Well, the garden is smelling rather fragrant what with Lilac in bloom and the flowers on the Mountain Ash.

The Mountain Ash was a very busy place......The Robin followed me around, he didn't care how close I got. I sat down and took a couple of pictures

It was nice sitting out front for a change. I also saw a Butterfly. I have seen more this year tha in the past 5 years I think

The view from the seats is nice, it will be really nice once the flowers are all out. The garden gets busy then, with bees, butterfly and I hope some Humming birds.

The Rose is still thriving, miricle of miricles. I sure hope it lives. I must feed and strengthen it during the summer.

The Quince is in bloom too, one is deep pink and this one orange. They are both lovely.

Forgetmenots they come up all over. They are allowed to bloom where they want and can always be pulled if they get out of hand. Like the Violets that come up in the grass.

Meanwhile, I had thought my plant I put in the driveway was frost bitten. I sprayed it and it came back just fine. I hope it will thrive now

If it does well I must try to bring it inside next Fall.
