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.

They Live................

The fish are alive yeahhhhhh!!!!!! Another year gone by and they survived the winter. I was a bit afraid at first. I usually see them as soon as it gets sunny. Well I did once, just enough to know they made it through the winter. Then they disappeared. I was worried because the pond was looking murkey. It really needs cleaning. The trouble is I am afraid to have it cleaned because the change in water can kill them. I think I will get some pond cleaner instead. Just clean the filters.

I still have not named the fish. I am still reluctant because all my other fish had names and died. The black one has grown and is more in the open than it used to be.

Anyway, it was nice seeing them have some fun today out in the sunshine.

I didn't get a picture of the orange one by the looks of it. I wonder how you can tell the sex of a fish??????
I wonder who the mum was. Who had the black fish? I wonder if they will have more. Also, will Mr Toad come back?

The old ash tray is still in one piece, it is beginning to rust. I put a plate on it for the birds to bath in. I saw Robins bathing the other day in my concrete one that is laying on the ground so I know they are looking for water.
Some of the flowers are coming out finally.

Still not many just yet but they are working on it. Some have popped above ground. We are working on the spot for the veggies I will post about that on Bluebell Woods.

Yeh, the fish are alive! So happy for you! I don't know how you can tell the sex of a fish? Good question! The old ash tray looks cool with the dish on top! Happy to see flowers popping up! Hugs!
