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.

Oooh the lillies are blooming................

One of my favourite things is the Day lilly. I call them all Day lillies even though they are probably not so bear with me here. I am not a horticulturalist. They are so bright and cheerful and last so long. I have tried to collect a few different ones for variety. There are some beauties out there.

I may show the same ones on different posts, but I can't resist they have so much beauty in them. Inside close up and as a group.

In certain lights they shine. The Orange is so vivid. The reds do not photograph well with my camera so I try at different times in the day.

Sometimes I can get a really good shot but more often than not the light is not right. The yellow just glow

There are still a few yet to bloom. I have one that has a two tone and is very pretty.

I am excited to see what else will pop out each day
I probably do not have enough room in my garden for very many more plants. I will now try to collect different lillies as I can always find room for them they are not fussy like a lot of plants. It's raining today so no garden work for me today.

Your Lilies, both Day and Regular are just gorgeous! Really love that last one, I have something similar only a bit paler in color. Great photos!
