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.

About the bees..................

Well even though the garden is straggly and dull, there are a few things going on. The bees are still buzy. The Michaelmas Daisies are doing well out front. Not so good out back. SO......I will put the new ones out front. I have lots to do out there. AS I have probably said all summer. Boy summer is short in Michigan. It's done already. The leaves are changing and its very dry. The Mums I bought are all done and not even in the ground yet. I have Hosta to plant.
Well it's supposed to be cooler now for the following week. Maybe I can become enthused?
Well here are a few pictures from today.

The Michaelmas daisies (Asters) are pretty and full of busy bees.

My new camera is not a lot better than the last one.

I have not found a camera that focuses as clear as my old one. I still prefer that one. I do have to get used to the new one though. I cant afford to just keep going through camera's

The colours on any of them do not show reds or pinks well. Still have issues with that.

I have to decide what I want to bring in for Winter. I hate to see things die. I managed to bring a couple of things in so far. I just dont have room for everything and hate them taking up so much space.

Tristen has wrecked a good many of my garden things this year and even though I have made a bunch of stuff I will be needing more. Still storage will be a bit easier if we can clean up the shed again. Jason bought me this gazing ball its steel, the others are all glass. I may try to get more of these.

This daisy is the prettiest colour. Out back I have some more burgundy colour ones. I think I need to move them all to the front in the hopes of them doing better.

One thing about the end of summer is the planning for next year. I sure hope I have the energy next year because everything needs doing over. Lots of digging up and moving. Makes me tired thinking of it.
