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.

Fairy Garden....................

This was Tristens weekend at Auntie Laura's. My daughter Laura had to work so Reina spent the day with us. What to do. I decided she would be bored with out Tristen so had to come up with something. I wanted to work in the garden because the weather was perfect for it.
SO we went off to Four Seasons Nursery. We saw this guy just down the road.

We want to make a Fairy garden so I knew they had the fairy stuff there. Boy was it expensive. Anyway they have a little garden set up as you go in. It has a pond.

This is the entrance........there are just so many greenhouses in this place. I mean they have a different greenhouse for every catagory, Perenials and annuals. They sell Native plants too.

Anyway we got a few things to make the fairy garden. I got a little house, a birdbath, some mushrooms and two fairies. The plants were tiny things and two ivy plants. I can not believe it came to 118 dollars. I bought two plants at 9.99 each apart from the fairy stuff.

Reina has a good time, she was very helpful. She swept the drive and she planted some plants.

I can see we have to look for more fairy things but that was all for now.

What fun - love the fairy stuff.

I think the word you want is Alium - as Alum is a bitter substance that makes your mouth pucker (it is used in making dill pickles, just don't taste it plain) LOL

Lupines just like those grow wild in majestic swaths all along the roads, hillsides and meadows here - they are in full bloom right now. I've seen blue, purple, pink and almost white ones.
