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.

A Few Birds.................

Not much is happening outside. The snow has about gone. Its been raining the last couple of days. I have been filling the bird feeders constantly but the darn squirrels have been raiding them. I put out a load of old walnuts and they have loved them. These are a few birds I saw today. The Cardinals are so bright that they are hard to miss.

He was sitting in the tree for quite awhile. The next time I looked he was at the feeder since the squirrel had left.

His Mrs was in the bush and on the ground. She didn't seem to want to come to the feeder.

The Mourning Doves are always around somewhere and hard to spot when on the ground. They blend in really well.

If I had gone outside I could have got some pictures of the pansies that are still blooming and there are still a few mums out there. Nothing great to take pictures of though.
