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.

Still no snow..............

Here it is December 12th and still no snow. That is fine by me. The squirrels are becoming a pest though. They watch from the tree tops, or somewhere, because as soon as the feeders get filled there they are. They are not happy with just the table they must get into the feeders too. That I don't like. Feeders are expensive and they don't care one bit.

I was hoping to get out and take some better pictures but its been wet. So it will have to be the usual suspects.
I had to share some cute Poodle pictures, I love this one of Bella, look at her tail hehe.

It looks like its about time for a hair cut but I love them fluffy. Brea is also very fluffy. She always yells at me when I tell her to come in. She is the only one of the 4 who tries to howl. She goes wooooooowoooooooowooooof. Her little mouth forms an O

She is getting fat, is all squishy. Because of her knees being bad she does not care for exercize too much so lays around a lot.

Mrs Cardinal came around. It's been hard to catch them here. The squirrels have just been too busy and no room at the feeders. I get the feeling they are enjoying the berries that are abundant and easy pickings right now.

I need to get more peanuts. The Blue Jays are really loving them. They like them in the shells but will eat the others first because they can pack about 5 in their face at one time, but only one in the shell.

They squabble a lot and usually there will only be one at a time. They more or less keep the smaller birds away until they are done

Meanwhile we have a line up in the tree, haha. The Mourning Doves just camp out and come in when everyone is done. That is unless they are really hungry and in that case they will even chase out the Blue Jays.This day they were just dozing and preaning and waiting.

The Blue Jays stayed until all the peanuts were gone

They send out scouts and I hear them tell their mates come on over to Schaubs she just filled the feeders and we got peanuts today.

No snow here!! Looks like a green Christmas! I don't like it! But, I won't complain! I love your pictures!!!! We had all your birds too and the nuthatch and other birds as well, but I've seen a large hawk for the past month! The ravens have been attacking it, trying to get it away. So, all the birds aren't around anymore! I know it's life and they all have to eat, but I miss my birds! Still have tones of squirrels! LOL!
