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.

June is busting out all over..............

Finally some colour in the garden. I got most of the clean up done. Still much more to do but now I can take my time. The wind has now blown all the blossoms away. It also blew all the little "helicopters" off the Maple trees. They are a mess. A nasty mess. Well the deck is finished now, this week I hope Gerry will work on the doors. Any rate the poodles are enjoying the deck for now.

The birds too.

But we are more interested in the flowers for now. One surprised me and came back. That means I can invest in more for that space. When a plant does not thrive I don't buy it again unless I want to try it in a different spot. This one is doing well.
Now if I could remember what it's called

The Spirea has Lilly of the Valley growing under it. The lilly is very invasive and I have to keep it tight under control.

I also have Honeysuckle growing in the bushes of Spirea. This year I bought a different Geranium. I usually get pink but thought I would be different.

The Granny Bonnets are doing well.

I love the Candytuft. It spreads and comes up faithfully year after year. Its doing so well in the barrel.

Great photos Janice ;o) I am the same way, if I buy something and it doesn't come back, I don't buy it again! I think mom's rose bushes I bought her this year for mother's day are dead! Darn it! I won't buy roses again! Hugs ;o)
