Doorways to the Holidays

On December 4th the new Garden Writers Association Region VII National Director Veronica Sliva invited the Garden Writers who were available to meet at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington, Ontario for a get together.  We had a talk from Belinda Gallagher at the RBG with an introduction to some of the staff who are reorganizing and revitalizing the collections at the centre.  We were given tours through some of the areas in the greenhouses.  Having some time to look around that morning I was intrigued by all the decorated doors that were on display.  The exhibit was called Doorways to the Holidays and were decorated by artists.  I just had to take pictures of some of them. 

Please visit Mary at the Little Red House to see mosiacs by other talented mosiac artists.  Valerie

The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
