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 birds..............

I was hoping by now we would have a lot of pictures of the garden. Not has been so cold that everything is late. I can not believe its been 6 whole months of winter this year. We have also had a lot of rain. We needed that to wash away the snow. All gone now. Only saw a very few piles on the way down state. Almost gone on our way back as it rained most of the weekend. Hope that's the end of that.
So not very many things to share in the garden yet. We had raked up the leaves but a lot have blown back. So here are a few pictures of the same old birds.

Sometimes there are some good shots but it does get a bit boring.

I missed a great picture of a Pileated Woodpecker the other day.

The poodles and Boots are at least able to run outside now. Its still too cold for them but they do the best they can.

I have made a half hearted effort to clean up. By the time I am able to do a good job I wont care. I already don't see much point in getting annuals. Why bother. Its Mid May and could snow by the end of September.
At least just a few mini daffs have popped through. Regular daffs are not even trying.

It wont be long though and then maybe I will have more enthusiasm for my blogs. Right now it does not seem like its worth it as there is nothing to show.

Now that I can painlessly type again, I just stopped by to say hello! It does seem like it is going to be a "short" summer this year as we had frost warnings a couple of nights this week. I usually plant flower seeds--which I will still do, but by the time they come up and flower we won't have long to enjoy them.

Keep smiling!
