Three More Sleeps

This Wednesday is the Opening to Canada Blooms 2010.  Very Exciting.  A chance to smell the flowers and look at great gardens, hear fabulous speakers and shop the market place.  I hear Martha Stewart will be there on Saturday.   My friend Jennifer and I were there today setting up our Master Gardeners of Ontario booth and stage.  Need to go back tomorrow and finish up.  The mosiac is made up of past Canada Blooms pictures.   For more mosiac visit Mary at http://dearlittleredhouse.blogspot.com/   Don't forget to wear green on Wednesday for St. Paddy's Day.

Looks wonderful! I go to the Philadelphia Flower Show every year. There's nothing like a flower show to get you in the mood for Spring!

Valerie, Flower shows can be such an inspiration- all those vibrant colors and fresh new ideas to make gardens look beautiful! Alas, I can only look at other people's gardens- I tend to have a brown thumb. LOL My SIL is a master gardener and she has such a pretty yard. I can keep ferns and potato vines alive, along with a few hardy flowers. I forget to water them.... poor babies live as long as they can and then just poop out on me! Grin~
I see you follow Lori E. Is she not just a hoot? Love her oodles. The header picture is the Sullivan homestead, now "going to the earth" as the Irish say.... It will eventually be taken over by the vines and decay. Thanks for stopping by.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. 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…
