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.

Common Beauty.......


The above is just a small part of the seeds from a Parsley plant in my garden. I edited it down to one small part of the original. Its so beautiful. Photography and art allows us to view things from a different perspective. I love that about it.
This small Sunflower grew from a seed that a bird dropped. It is an unexpected beauty.


When you look close at larger flowers you see the smaller flowers within.


The blossoms of fruit are beautiful close up.

Close up of the fruit is also beautiful in its own right

Then there is an opening rose bud in my garden. Its yellow with pink blush, so pretty with rain on its petals.

...and a close up of those rain drops......beautiful isn't it.

I was quite surprised to see the nettles flowering in my garden. The flower parts are very small, it almost looks like the plant is dusty, but on closer inspection, there are hundreds of super-small blossoms. Amazing.
