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.

Rainy Days...................

We have had a lot of rain, maybe a good thing. Better than snow.'s been cold enough. Tomorrow in fact it's supposed to get so cold that it will be icy in the morning so probably a bit of snow can be expected. I will have to be sure to fill up the feeders. I bought critter food as well as bird seed. The Squirrels LOVE it. So do the Blue Jays. There are peanuts in shells as well as corn and bird seed in the critter mix.

The squirrels were soaked through but still enjoyed their feast. I bet they were shivering poor little critters.

I couldn't catch pictures of anyone else this day. The blue Jays sent out the the news and there was plenty of family squabbles as well as the squirrels fighting. It was certainly noisy for awhile. The ever present Mourning Doves were picking up the falling bits

Well there were not many birds that wanted to get wet and so this is it for today. I will leave you with this little pest enjoying lunch.

Those blue jays are pretty and the furry little fellows looked very wet but enjoying the food.
