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.

Inside in November............................

The plants I brought inside for Winter, well, some is good and some is not. Already threw out the Basil. Dang it, that was one I wanted very much to keep. Ah well. The Rosemary is not looking too good either. I will have to cut it and save what I can and see if it revives.

The Parsley is wilting but is trying to survive. Pity I don't use parsley more.

The Lavender is doing quite well so far. I have no idea whats up with that. I never have luck with Lavender so do not expect it to survive, but one never knows.

Now The Geraniums survived last Winter so maybe those will survive this one. I hope so because once they did bloom they were spectacular.

I brought in 3 Geraniums. Sure will save some money next year if they do well again.
I did bring in the Boston Fern its stringy but well, if it likes it's spot maybe it will perk up. Trouble is this spot is by the back door and although there is a heater next to it, I wonder if it will be fussy

I did keep some of the Begonia again, same ones that got through last year.

Some died right away and some are doing Ok. Time will tell. I need some potting soil to top up the pots guess I should do that pretty soon, I have to be in the mood for that. Should get myself in the mood before they dry out.
The couple of weird things I brought in were the peppers. They are so bloomin hot to eat but they are pretty and will be even better if I prune it back I think.

Tristen's little gift to me is struggling but still trying hard. I should re-pot that one.

The Christmas Cactus is also happy, I don't know why because its in a tiny pot that often drys out.

Some of my African Violets are reaching their end, it's hard to know. Some go on and on and others dry up and blow away. I love the Violets most of all I think. I was given the basket of them when Button's died. I kept those going through thick and thin. I did eventually replace one I think and again, they all need re-potting. I just don't like doing that job. Still if I don't I could lose them.

Spider plants doing well, at least these two are. I have a couple more upstairs along with some Begonias and the other flowers I brought in..........didn't picture those and I should probably also take care of those. It was hard enough getting them inside before the cold spell. Now its time to take care of them.

As you see I have a house full again. I do so hate to see things die if I can save them. Made room by using the bedrooms this year and once I know they will be OK I will move more up there. Right now I have a few who need nursing a bit. Outside is so blah. The weather has been so good I should get my lazy self out there and dig up the garden and put away the garden ornaments. It's supposed to be sunny tomorrow so maybe that's what I will do and decorate the back deck.........
