Summer Happiness for Mosiac Monday

What brings you happiness?  Happiness to me is summer.  This is the time of the year I can actually go out side in flip flops and shorts with no sweater.  The rest of the year I always seem to be cold but not in summer.   Happiness in summer  is a lot of things. Here are some highlights so far.
1. Colourful muskoka chairs sitting on the dock at Lake Simcoe. 2.Painted Lady Butterfly 3. Happy yellow Coreopsis 4. White Cleome 5. Morning Glory 'Chocolate' 6. Pink waterlily in the pond 7. Pickerel weed flower in the pond 8. Strawberry Rhubarb Shortcake 9. Baby doves 10. Daylily 'Tiny Temptress' 11. Hardy Prickly Pear cactus 12. Astrantia

Join us at Mary's for Mosiac Monday.  Join in we are friendly.  Happy Gardening.  Valerie

Lovely summer mosaic.

I like summer but it's not my favourite season. I'm not fond of extreme heat, I don't like air conditioning and I don't have a pool. :)

What a delightful mosaic! Filled with those things you love about summer. I love the chairs and the water; the butterfly, the baby dove, strawberry shortcake and the flowers! Just lovely!

I agree with you about the warmth of summer. i was just explaining this to my daughter this morning. i love being able to walk around barefoot in the house and love wearing capris and light shirts. I am so cold through every other season. Fleece provides warmth and coziness but it really gets tiring to be dressing in fuzzy clothes, thick socks and warm slippers each morning. Your mosaic is lovely!

Hoping You Have a Blessed Easter

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…

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.
