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.

Yesterday and Today.........

What a difference a day makes. Monday was such a lovely day. We went to Northport in the afternoon. I had gone out to take some pictures in the garden. I am so antsy to get things done and ready for Spring. We did get some raking done in the back garden but oh boy, you should see the front. Leaves from last Autumn inches thick all over. Keeping the garden warm.
I was checking on my Snowdrops and they were still there.

Not fussy little things, tough and beautiful. I walked around and some of the things that were coming up are either frozen tips or eaten.

I wonder if the Bunnies are busy?

So back inside I checked later at the bird feeder. I fill it up and the Squirrels eat it all

They love the Peanuts. The Blue Jays do too but they missed out. Have not seen them. This little guy was being very helpful though. The clean up crew.....

There is now a Winter storm warning going on and we can expect a bunch dumped on us tonight. All I can say is it does not usually last too long. I won't be making the mistake I made last year and buying stuff and putting in too early. Oh no. I won't do that again. In any case I have to replan for this year. Last year was hardly a success. I really want some Zucchini. I just do not know where to put it. Hmmmmm I wonder, do you think I could put it by the road? Dump some good soil there and make a place for it. Maybe that would get Gerry out there to dig it up haha. Why not right? Good idea.

Wow, what a drastic change in the weather! We have been lucky here. Cold, but no snow! Good idea with the zucchini! LOL! Big Hugs!
