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.
... I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.......Psalm23:6

Januay 15 2018...........................

We certainly have the snow this year. The birds just are not coming in to the feeders it has been so cold, below zero for so many days. I worry about the deer and wild animals. The squirrels are getting fat at least.

There have been plenty of Blue Jays when they can get to the feeder. The small birds have stayed away.

There has been no break, save one day, when the temperatures got up over freezing.

We went to McGough's to get bird food, and saw all the local pigeons lined up. They eat well at McGough's

On clear days the sky is sooooo blue and so beautiful with the white of the snow

My windchimes are looking good in the snow though.

The only small birds who showed up were a couple of Chickadees and for a few moments a yellow finch and a Tufted Titmouse.

Not a lot going on here. I am thinking it might be time to close this blog and get it all on my Bluebell Woods. Not sure yet.
