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.

First Snow.......

We had the first snow of the season yesterday November 22nd. Sort of late for Michigan. Considering we were at the beach last Sunday. It sure is pretty, and sunny too. The above picture is our street just outside our house.

So, I made sure my feeders were full ready for visitors. None came. Hmmmmmmm guess everyone stayed home to stay warm. Meanwhile the Bea Balm were all wearing hats

The berries looked very pretty against the snow

Finally the Chickadees were hungry.

The cat was NOT happy at all she went out, wanted in, out, in and so on. Chippy stayed away too. This is him the day before enjoying the seeds in the bird house

Tristen had fun, he went out right away as soon as he saw it.

The Mourning Doves hang out in the tree, they don't seem to care about snow or much else. As long as there's food.

Everything looked pretty in the snow with the sun on it.

Maybe some Cardinals will come along and make me some pretty pictures.
I love how the little Chickadees hold the seed and hammer the snot out of it, eat and go in for more.

Such happy little things, I just love them. The sun on the trees with the snow. Such a beautiful day.

It's so nice to hear someone talk about snow in such a loving way! I love snow too, and it makes everything a wonderland, and really brings out the birds ... and little boys ;) Aren't chickadees the cutest? I like the way they're not greedy like some birds and politely take one seed at a time. Enjoy your snow ... we had a mere dusting this morning, but it's all gone now.

Somehow I missed seeing this post...brrrrr! I know you are probably used to it, but it is a bit early for that amount of snow here. Hope it holds off for awhile! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
