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.

Wild flowers on our walk............

I took a few pictures of wildflowers when we went for a short walk a few days ago. I thought I would share a few here. First I believe is a Teasel. Thats what I call it anyway. Looks good when its dried.

I was happy to finally catch a white butterfly actually sitting still for a few seconds. Cabbage White is what I know it as.

This is the most beautiful blue. It usually grows by the side of the roads and I know what it is, but cant remember. I will think on it

The birds will be lucky when they find these berries.

Well it was great to get out in the fresh air and I love taking pictures there is nothing going on in my garden. Its a mess and I have no ambition right now to do much about it. So maybe next time.
