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.

The Front Porch...............

I have never really liked my front porch. It was not too bad when it had the vines growing up it. Now it's way too open. Its also rather awkward looking. I have a bench over near the window because I don't want it getting too wet when it rains. The rocking chair gets wet and has to be painted now and then to keep it from falling apart.
When Gerry works on the outside of the house I am thinking we will put rails up. Wooden spindles like we put on the rental house. (That is going to be for sale soon) Maybe enclosing it will be better. Maybe then I will feel more like cleaning the ceiling and getting rid of cobwebs. I do like decorating for the seasons though. Now is Autumn.

I do not do Halloween but I do love the Autumn. Cooper got a couple of pumpkins something I don't normally do. However if it's not carved I like them, just buy fake ones haha. I do have some pretty little gourds and last time I got some the critters ate them.

By finding the Autumn stuff up in Alex's closet I happened to get that sorted out. Woo Hoo two jobs accomplished.

I have, somewhere, stuff for all seasons. It's a matter of finding them every year. Well they are back in the garage now,the summer stuff that is. I wanted to keep them all in the house so I knew where they were but they have been changed around so many times it was a guessing game again. So now, back to the garage at least till next year. Was a bit put off by resident spiders or at least cobwebs. One day I will be organized. I had the stuff handy until I had to empty closets when Gabby moved in.

I could use a table top ornament so maybe I will do some thrift shopping and see what I can find. I just can't get out of my funk and want to do things.

The weather has been so nice and I have not had the energy to go walking. I have to snap out of it. I still have loads to do in the house. Also it's time to get stuff in for winter and it aint happening. Tomorrow is another day.
