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.

and more from July garden...................

So today I finished another pretty for the garden. I am trying to use up a lot of old stuff and dwindle my craft supplies down. A while ago I had some ornaments, fairies, they broke and left me with some wire wings. I held on to them. I wondered if I could make something with them and when I started stringing beads I looked at the bigger one of the two and decided to experiment. Here it is.

I am quite happy with this one. Anyway, I refreshed some garden things with nail polish. This one was twinkling in the sun but I don't think I captured it.

There are some new blooms on my old farm rose. I gave it some fertilizer, maybe that will give it a boost

In the back of this picture you can see a very large tub with some grass in it. I gave up on trying to control it in the garden and now I can have it and control it too.

This stuff needs a lot of control too, it spreads all over but is so pretty. It comes in a few colours but I just have pink. I have enough problems with that.

This is Creeping Jenny (I think) it's such a pretty colour. It took me a long time to get it going but now I have it in several places. I put some in the little boy fountain out back, the water would not stay in so I am hoping that means it will drain OK. I am thinking I wont mind if it spreads bit under the pines.

Bodicea enjoyed a mild day in the shade, she is getting old poor girl. She has trouble walking now and I am pretty sure she is having some hearing and vision problems (sounds like me)

I found a home for a pretty saucer that was broken. I didn't want to smash it or throw it away and so here it is in it's new home.

Well that's about it for today, I enjoyed the light on these yellow lilies and took a picture.

I enjoy going out with my camera every day, it seems every day there is something new to see. I had not meant to post this often.

I have something similar to your creeping Jenny but mine is known as creeping charlie.
