Becky for Mosiac Monday

Leucanthemum x superbum or Shasta Daisy 'Becky' is blooming in the garden.  The plant has large white multi petalled flowers with a yellow centre.

Becky makes a nice big clump.  The flowers last for many weeks.  Dead head for more blooms  Seen here Becky is in combination with a yellow yarrow and purple salvia.  All are drought tolerant and happy in less than ideal soil conditions.

This butterfly would let me get my lens right up close but he would not open his wings for me.

Many more mosiacs can be found at Mary's DearLittleRedHouse.  Join us won't you.   Happy Gardening week.  It is going to be a scorcher here so water early in the day.   Valerie


Hi Val, What a wonderful mosaic, I like the picture with the butterfly. I will be indoors for a few days with the smog warning. Take care, Jen

My daisies are almost open. They were planted here before we moved in and we have been here 27 years. They are such happy plants.
What kind of butterfly is that?

Hi Val.
Love the mosaic and the daisies...but that butterfly -- Dang I am jelous.

I have not been able to capture one in years. (photography wise) :)

I am heading out this week to a garden and hopefully find some.

Have the best week.

Thanks for setting me straight - sometimes I notice errors after the fact but might not have noticed this one - 143 it is...(I've never been good with numbers)
Your daisies are fresh and happy!

Hello Valerie,
it is always so nice visiting your place!
Have a good week!
Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog. The black cohosh (whose foliage did in fact used to be dark but has been green for years) is one of my favorite plants--it's just so perfect for the space it's in, too. I am a master gardener volunteer, but you don't need to show your ID to get a cohosh, lol. Love the astrantia in one of your previous posts. I've never grown those and didn't even realize they grew in MI until about a month ago. :)

Lovely, just lovely. My shasta's are just starting to bloom, too. Love your flowers...
Becky is beautiful - I think her cousin lives in my garden though it might be another week till she opens her blooms.

I wish the butterflies around here were as obliging as yours. Great photos.

You mosaic is stunning and the flowers are gorgeous.
Hi Valerie,
You have a wonderful blog; love your flowers! I am so happy you stopped by and introduced yourself! Another Canadian blogger I'm happy to meet! I also drink a lot of coffee and not just tea. My party is one in which you can feature tea, coffee, hot chocolate, iced tea, etc.
I would be honoured if you joined me. The more the merrier as they say! Let me know and I'll link you up. I'm your newest follower.
Hope you have a lovely evening.

Thanks for stopping by, I'm definitely heading back to visit. I was a Master Gardener in Illinois. Then we moved back to Southern California and I can't keep anything alive! I don't think we're on sand, I think it's decomposed granite. Your daisy mosaic is very pretty. I like the little gardening advice included.

Kathy said…
gorgeous daisy photos! So lovely that you caught the butterfly on one! Great shot!
I have two giveaways this month! Hope you stop by,
Love those shastas! They're tough and reliable. Mine are just starting to bud up with the cool spring and summer we've had so far (but today is warm, yay!).

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…
