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.

Roses are Red.................

Some of my roses are doing well. I cant believe it. Maybe they are just maturing? This colour does not photograph well for me. It is a really pretty red, scarlett really.

The two new roses out front are looking hopeful. The yellow is budding again. It was covered in blooms when I put it in. They all died and I nipped them off. Well new buds, so does that mean they like where I planted it? The other one has a lovely orange yellow colour and smells beautiful.
The very first day lillies are out

In a few days they will be in bloom all over the garden. I will be busy with pictures of them.
Right now there are a lot of flowers blooming and I am seeing a lot of red and yellow, but there is also pink and purple.

My Clematis is thriving at last. The vine is still spindley looking though. Each year it does at least get thicker and bigger and I put in another right next to it this year.

The Oriental poppy came back but is not lush by any means. I think I will pick up a couple more if I see any......I may find one under all the daisy things when I go thin it all out. It was cool today, it would have been a great day for working outside. Too much else to do but maybe tomorrow.

I have so many yellow daisies that they need thinning out. I also need to pull some Iris. Lots to do tomorrow if it does not rain.

The Money plants have spread all over and they will get thinned out too. I liked this picture

Not much else going on as its been wet. I will need to spray again for some fly that is eating things. I hate to spray but they strip the leaves clean if I don't. I will be doing some transplanting too. People are complaining about how cold it is but I am loving it. It just makes working so much easier. I am not seeing many birds, they are all busy although the Chickadees are flitting around. I haven't seen the butterfly since it got cold. That makes me think we need to visit the butterfly house again and see if it got bigger this year. More later.
