Flowering Rush for Straight Out of the Camera Sunday

The Flowering Rush or Butomus umbellatus is now flowering in our pond.   This is one of two plants we have in the pond.  The other one has a bud on it but has not yet opened.  I think it is very pretty. 

Straight out of the Camera Sunday is hosted by Jan at Murrieta365.com.   Take a picture but do not edit it.  You can crop it but that is all.  Post it to your blog and then link it to Jan's site.   It is fun and it is easy.  See you there.   Valerie

Great flower! We have a bud almost ready to burst in our patio pond and it didn't flower last year at all. I don't know what it is going to look like- hopefully it will be similar to this.

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…
