Butterfly in the Pansies

I purchased a pot of pansies today at Costco.  So lazy...I did not have to pot them up.  Just plopped the container into the urn at the front door.  They smelled so devine.  A cabbage butterfly thought so too.  Happy Easter to you and your family.   More Straight out of the Camera photos can be found here Murrieta365

Lovely pansies. I saw some arrangements outside the grocery store too, but they were too pricy. I need to visit the garden center as they had some just waiting to be purchased and planted up outside my front door.

That's cool! I haven't seen any cabbage butterflies yet this year, though I did see three mourning cloaks in the forest on Thursday. The pansies are pretty!
Gosh, it is amazing how think those can be when their wings are tight together like that. It makes it all the more interesting! Also, I love Pansies. :)

I just LOVE this photo!! It should be framed, its so pretty.
You've convinced me to go buy some pansies today. I think if I plant them on the shady side of the house, they may last longer than usual.

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…
