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.

Weatherman best be wrong!!!!!................

Cheerful Charlie last night said we may just see a little snow in the morning, not to worry it will just be a little bit. What the heck it was bloody well 90 yesterday. SO today is back in the 40s. No snow so far but my daughter in law posted a picture of her place in the UP. Yes that is snow.

I am hoping we do not get a freeze tonight or it could damage a lot of plants. I still have some veggies to pot up but will not be doing that today. I brought them inside just in case.
Meanwhile I took some pictures yesterday.

Things are beginning to blossom and I would hate to see it all frost bitten.

My new Iris is doing OK and so pretty, I hope it thrives.

Such tender young things. I must hope for the best. Too much to cover although I may cover the Hibiscus and put the Spider plants under the table on the deck. Those are easy enough to move and cover. Other things are just beginning to take off.

Then in the shade garden at the back we have a tent up for Tristen for the summer. He and the girls will have fun with that.

Finally my piece of garden art from last year, that got broken.....well I am using that as a plant stand and I like it better for that. It's holding some Citronella for mosquito's and that is next to my chair on the deck.

Well the sun is out for now........still very cold. I would not mind being outside working but am still fighting a cold/cough. Not feeling so good anyway so will just rest for just better not shoot back up to 90 degrees tomorrow. This weather is crazy even for Michigan.
