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.
... I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.......Psalm23:6

A Walk by the river..................

I don't often have the chance to walk alone. I don't really enjoy it but it was peaceful and I want to do this more often. Have to begin somewhere. So After I did a few things I stopped down by the river. It was such a lovely day, I hated to waste it inside. It was warm too. The colours were just aglow with the sun shining on the brilliant yellows and limes.

The Squirrels were enjoying the sun and doing what they do best, hunt for food and hide it.

I went down to the water to look for ducks. I almost didn't see them in the bushes along the edge. Then they swam out and stopped to sit on a few rocks and prean.

Mallards of course

We sometimes see other kinds of water fowl but that was it that day.

The reflections on the water were just beautiful

I continued on and admired the pretty day

The sky was so blue and with the brilliant yellows no wonder the water looked like moulton gold. I heard sweet bird songs and could not believe it was coming from Starlings. They were so sweet sounding

The water is shallow but swift moving down to the dam where there is a fishing spot.

Its fun to see the salmon when they run. A popular fishing place all along the river with a beautiful walk on the other side. Maybe I will do that next time.

Good Morning Janice :) I've been reading back the last three posts and enjoyed seeing your changing garden and your walk through the woods. It's just gorgeous in your area! Love all those sunshiny photos of the golden leaves and the brilliant blue skies. I was singing that song the other day "Sunshine on my Shoulder Makes me Happy" (John Denver) as it was just one of those amazing fall days when you can't help but feel happy with the sunshine giving everything outside one last hug. You really captured all that is autumn in your shots and I really enjoyed them. Our leaves are just about finished here after yesterday's high winds. I guess it's time to rake up my neighbour's leaves ... all of which seem to land in my driveway and blow completely off his lawn! Have a wonderful weekend!

Water is very much the sauce of life.
It's calming and attracts all animals us included.
