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.

Got some flowers for ya......................

Well its coming into the dried out season, the Bea Balm has been very active with all the bees buzzing around.Some of the flowers planted last year have done well this year and probably will do better next year. I now remember why I don't work in the garden after the Spring clean up. It's been too bloody hot or humid. One or other.
Pansies in my porch planter are not happy. Not the best place for them.

Bees are very happy in my front garden. I will have to tidy it up if we get some nice Fall weather

The Day lilies seem to pace themselves, blooming at different times.

I think I need some pale yellows, I saw a pretty lime sort of flower. I do have some pretty ones though and I will need to separate some out from among other things. I need to get rid of some of the ferns, they take over. Maybe I can find a better spot for them. I will need something under the pine next Spring.
I will also plant Sunflowers, I love them.

I think I will put some along Bud's fence hehe
The Butterfly bush is blooming. Its a few years old now, each year there are a few more blooms but it's not too impressive.

I have been much happier with the roses this year. Having a bit more light has done wonders and next year they will have more after I trim the end pine tree.

I do still have one to move this Fall. I think the little garden with the stones where the other two live will work. They did so well in there. I may get another pale pink knockout rose. It is so pretty but I don't want to move the one I have its established even if it doesn't grow much more. So in the hope of cooler days to come I will get through this weeks 90 degree crap that is forecasted. Ugh................Stay cool.
