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.

July gardens.......................

Everything is blooming nicely. The new grass on the side is sprouting. I think it needs some time to get strong and deep roots. I think I will spread some more seed so that it really really grows nice, maybe a proper lawn. I just thought of it, I will weed carefully before and during its construction. Then put down the black stuff and get stones I think instead of mulch. Then I can get some nice big rocks to sit there. I do so love rocks.

I may just have ONE good lawn. Maybe.
Meanwhile, I made one more wind chime.

Meanwhile I rearranged my tea pot and cup and put a Drip between them.

By the side of the road my Milk Weed is really flourishing this year and it smells divine.

I have yet to see any activity. No butterfly except the white one that's always around. This little guy was hovering around

A few other things are blooming, it's just that they all need to get more organized so they bloom together.

That last one, will be little purple bells. I love them, but oh they are a pain. They spread like crazy and I fight them all year, they are worth it though.
This is another plant that is a pain in the butt.

The new sun catchers are looking pretty, I will make a few more and use up some of the beads. It's nice to have dwindled down my supply and I must resist getting more.

My naughty Brea is yelling at me

The garden changes daily, it's great this time of year, so much all the time unlike the winter months when there is just the birds and squirrels. No one is hanging around these days. Well there are always squirrels. I think the cats have chased off the Chipmunks. Anyway......all for today
