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.

Fish baby.........

I finally got a picture of the baby fish. Well, I think I said we had 3 fish, and they all made it through the winter. Come to find out a few weeks ago we now have 4. My cousin in England breeds goldfish and so I told him that we have a black one. He said goldfish are black when babies and its rare that they breed like this in a small pond. They must like this pond. We dont try to keep it clean like we used to. We just try to keep it from being filled with tap water (chlorine) and just try to keep debris out of it. We kept the pump going all winter and will do so again this year.
Here are the adults

They look healthy dont they.

I sure hope that I can keep them healthy and growing like this. They should not get bigger than their environment can handle. Who knows I might have to put in another pond.

Well I don't know who the mother is but here are a couple of shots, not very good ones of the baby.

This one is a bit harder to make out because it has a shadow

Now to just keep Miss Boots away, she does like to watch them. Miss Boots has a cold/cough so may need to visit the vet, she wont like that one bit
