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

Today we had a visit from Mr Chips. Boots has been hanging out around the garage for over a week. She sits on the deck too and watched the door while watching birds at the same time. In fact, she was sitting there dozing while a Blue Jay was on the deck behind her. They should not take her so lightly, she will get them when she is in the mood. She is too lazy most of the time. However, she has depleted the Chipmunk population.

I had my hand right up to him/her and then it decided to take off. I could most likely get it to eat out of my hand. This one is a young one. They are most likely nesting in the garage.
Meanwhile the girls are disgusted, looks like "Mum, what the heck are you doing"

The Squirrels meanwhile, well they just don't care about anything but the food.

They all look very healthy and plump.

The trees are almost bare. The Silver Maple has its buds ready for Spring

My camera didn't show the colour as I saw it, they were silver almost white against the sky.
The Blue Jays came despite the cat.
