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.

Courting Cardinals........

So he has been with her all winter. At my feeder every day. So now, here comes Spring (he thinks) and he is courting her..........how sweet is that.

Every morning at 5.30 or so, he begins singing his heart out.

I have not seen them together since the bad weather at the middle part of winter. I see them both at the feeders but not together. So he must have to woo her each year once the babies have left.
