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.

Decorating outside.............

We have finally got snow. It makes things look so much better. I was not really ready for it but now it's here, well, it is pretty.
When we brought all the Christmas stuff from storage, I had Gerry bring up everything he could find. In doing so I found all my Fall stuff, a bit late as was the Spring stuff and the summer flowers. Yes I found all that was lost. Hmmmmm.
So, down came my summery decorations, not having decorated for Fall. Gerry could not find the stuff. So now we have it. (smile)

I did get him to put up the lights on the front porch. I also had him drag up some old outside ornaments. He would never do it before and we are the only one in our ally that does not decorate. I love the outside lights.

Apart from the lights, that I would have liked to do more, I put this out for the birds.

I sold my small sled but still have the big one. Next year I must paint it or something to preserve the wood.

Wreaths are one of the things I love most.

The birds are cold, I had to shoo this little one away because it was sitting there. I put out more food and it came back and ate

The little ones come in a small flock and stick together. I am thinking of taking down the grapevines next year, but the thing with that is the little birds like it for shelter in the winter. So what to do about that.

I feel bad for the little ones and my Crows have not showed up yet this year. I do hear them around so maybe when they are hungry enough they will remember.
