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.

Blue Jay Afternoon...........

Well there is just a dusting of snow, it sort of improves things. There are so many leaves still on the ground and looks now as though they will stay there. I guess that the ones on the garden may just decompose and be a good thing. The ones on grass can get mowed. No problem, except if he trys to use the snowblower haha. Ooops that may be a problem. Since he doesn't have to work, and the snowblower is on the blink I guess it won't matter.

I haven't seen the Possum (Apossum) in a few days now, I hope he's OK. I put Coopers pumpkin out back for he animals to eat and they have broken through into the seeds already. So anyhoo I did get the inside decorating done and the outside is sort of done. Can't say I am happy with it because I still don't have lights on the front porch. There are lights out back on the garage but when I look at what everyone else has done it's pretty pathetic. Out front I have two spindly lights and a sick deer.

The back deck looks sort of OK but maybe I can work on it now inside is done. Back to the Blue Jays. Today they really enjoyed the peanuts.

They were enjoying things until the Squirrels showed up. There were about five Blue Jays. I put out some water for them, they had been going down to the pond. There is chicken wire over the pond so hopefully they can't fall in. I noticed last year that the birds enjoy the pond in Winter.

I guess this is a rather boring post, guess things will be rather boring till Spring. I am not sure if I want to keep this and my Pretty things blog going next year. I could in fact just keep everything on one blog. We shall see.

Not boring at all! But, you might want one blog. It would be easier on you! I love your animal photos so much! I never thought of putting water out for the birds! Great idea! Big Hugs!
