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.

Sunshine makes me happy.........................

Even with the garden in such a mess as it is now its beautiful. The colours, the light. Its magic. I have been filling the feeders and seeing a few more birds coming in. The squirrels are always there. Today the cat (Boots) was laying on the deck and I could hear the Blue Jays screaming. I went out to check, Boots was just laying in the sun but a Blue Jay was down on the deck trying to eat and was not happy that cat would not leave.

The birds have not adjusted to me yet either. I normally stand in the bathroom window to take my pictures. They are skitterish but liked the food so I did get a few pictures.
The colours are just spectacular with the sun on them. The Forsythia right now glows

The Burning Bush is brilliant in the sun

I was hoping to get some pictures of birds in it while the sun was on but no luck. The Cardinals were chasing each other. Two females arguing over the boy. Wonder if they are this years young? We have about 3 regular pairs come in the last few years.
Look at the Oak leaves

The Poodles are enjoying the sun, but usually wont stay out if I go in.

We also have some pretty berries that no doubt will become a treat some time in the Winter.

How did the frost miss this beauty?

However the Mountain Ash is almost bald. Whatever berries that once had is long gone. Its now just a perch for the birds to eat their snacks. The Squirrels use it as an escape route also. Right now they have thick fur and are fat. They are stacking up on food and should have enough fat to see them through the winter months. They sure eat enough

The sun made everything so brilliant and has been a blessing this last few days. It's not going to last, in fact I do believe that it ends tomorrow. I could use a few more days of this.
