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.

Day Lilies in Bloom..........

I do love my Day Lilies, they are beginning to bloom. I am impatient to see them but it also tells me that summer is waning before it's began. I think I would like to collect a few different ones.

Some of the lilies I have are short ones, some are tall single blooms and some are in groups. I like the groups because they flower longer

I am waiting for the new one to bloom again and there are quite a few that are about to bloom.
Anyway, the roses are still going strong and the new one has at least got some shoots so I am anxious to see what it will be like when it does bloom. May not be this year.

Quite a few things blooming at the moment. It's always a pity everything does not bloom at once and last all summer.

Some annuals help fill in spots

Oh and my Gooseberry bush has fruit on it. Tiny fruit but hey, maybe as the bush grows who knows, maybe the berries will be bigger next year

I think I may get another knockout rose to go in here, a red one.

Some daisies are beginning to bloom. I Need more of those too. I will wait and see how they do this year and what comes back up.

I am working on some beadwork, making some wind chimes for the garden. I hope to finish another one tomorrow but this one was done today

I have missed having pictures for my garden blog and now I am sure it will become boring with an over load of pictures.

If it stops raining for a few days I should be able to finish up but every time I go out I see more to do, no rush now though so yeahhhhh I have all summer. I must begin to tackle the side yard. Hmmmmmm what to do there.
