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.

Sugar Plums...........

My garden is not cooperating so to heck with it.......we will talk about Sugar Plums seeing as I already did my other two blogs today.
Have you ever really wondered what they are. Sugar Plums? Well.......I am about to tell you. In a way they do belong here because it is, in a round about way to do with fruit. Dried fruit to be exact.



In our day and age we know more about the sugar plum fairy......

We read about them every Christmas......"The children were tucked all safe in their beds while visions of sugar plums danced in their heads"

So now you know. Dried fruits and other goodies, that back in the very ancient past were readily available as they are now.....I think I might make these next year.
