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.

Garden visitors..........

I took a break from my blogs while over Thanks giving. I was also sick and had no energy for it. I did manage to get some bird pictures though. Pretty much the same ones show up all the time. It looks as though the Red Bellied Woodpecker is going to be a regular though. That's nice. Apparently they are moving further north from their normal territory.


Mr and Mrs Cardinal are here regularly again. They look so much better now. I was worried as I had never before noticed the birds during molting season. They all looked terrible but now they are back at their prime I think.
We always know when the Blue Jays arrive. They come several times a day and announce their arrival with loud squawks and shrieks.

They are beautiful birds. Just so noisy.

We got the Yellow Finches today too. We have had the Rosey ones for several days but this was the first time since summer that the yellow ones showed up. They often travel together.

They hang out with the other small birds and its not unusual to see a whole flock of small birds come in at once. Chickadees are here every day

The Nuthatch hangs out with the Tufted Titmouse and the Chickadees among others

The male Cardinal is cheeky and will often hang out in the bushes until the others leave

The Squirrels are being a real pest and about 5 of them are showing up on a regular basis. Trouble is they scarf all the food and keep the birds away. I let them eat but then try to scare them away so I can get my pictures.
