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.

Is it Spring?.........

Can it be true? it was quite warm today. I would have worked outside but would have needed a boat. The ice is coming off the roof and leaving puddles and chunks. We still have to take care of that area this Spring. We need some sort of cover for the deck. An awning or a porch roof. Not sure yet. We also have to put in the window where the old door is. So much needs to get done. When we have that all sorted out the next project should be the fence........but maybe the porch at the side. If we do that we can put in two new windows. Its a question of money as always. What we can and can not do. next job is cleaning up this mess.

Its a terrible mess of old bird seed and poop. It is after all the poop deck all Winter.
Well I must get to it as soon as all the ice comes down. The house just shuddered as a whole bunch came down. Scary to think someone could be under it. Have to do something about that sooner rather than later.
Meanwhile The Cardinal was in full throttle this morning. Singing his heart out he was. A couple of Crows were chasing a Hawk. Busy time this Springtime, they all have the fever too.

The Cardinal boy was trying to impress someone. A yellow finch showed up and sat up there with him but he was rejected and the finch flew away before I could get a picture.

The regulars have yet to be bitten by the mating bug, the Nuthatch is the girl and she was not impressed neither was the Junco girl.

I just can not wait to get cleaned up, clean those feeders and scrub the deck off. Shovel the pathways and make their feeding grounds healthy again. Right now I am not enjoying seeing the mess but the Squirrels are not fussy apparently and there is a lot of seed left so waste not want not I guess.
This morning the moon was still up as it began to get light.
