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.
... I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.......Psalm23:6

Its coming.........

Woke up to a dusting of snow on the roof. It was gone with the sun but was a reminder. It was a cold day today, not freezing, but cold. It was also sunny, so very pretty. This cold spell will help the leaves to change. If its sunny tomorrow maybe we will go for a ride and check them out.
Also maybe one more walk on the beach at Leland.
We were lucky to have not got the snow they did in Kalkaska area, they got real snow.

Pretty leaves in the garden on the ground, look sweet when the birds are there too.

The Junco's are back. They were as usual hanging out with the Chickadees and finches

So far the bright yellow finches have not showed up but I probably just missed them. They will be around.

I like the little house finches too, so much like Sparrows but not. We never get Sparrows and I wish we did. Nothing like squarreling squabbling Sparrows

Then we have spuddy the Mourning Dove. Look at the head, growth. Looks funny, this one was fiesty too, was chasing off the Junco's

Today would have been nice to take a ride. Can't really walk in the woods in peace as it's bow hunting, although with kids along its not that we wont be heard. I remember last year going on a hike and when we got back some guys were heading in with guns. Thats legal too, said we should wear orange or stay out, well it was a national park and we never expected to have to worry about that. We went but there were still people hiking. The park ranger just shrugged so I know they were within their rights. Does not seem right to me.
