No Labour Day for the Animals for Mosiac Monday

Labour Day mosiac

It came to me last weekend as we were relaxing in the backyard and enjoying the last long weekend of the summer that our little wildlife friends were madly searching for food in their usual way.  The hummingbirds were dipping and diving and squeaking all afternoon.  If one came to the feeder another one would swoop down and they would fly away into the trees. The squirrels and chipmunks were busy collecting seed.  The birds were at the bridfeeders.  There is no labour day for the critters.  They must work to survive every day. 

Join Mary at DearLittleRedHouse for Mosiac Monday.   Have a great gardening week.  Valerie

Hi Val, What a wonderful mosaic of all the wildlife in the yard. Fabulous pictures. Take care and have a great week. Jen
Hi Val
Cool mosaic. I'm afraid I don't feel too friendly towards the 4 legged critters that thieve the seeds meant for the birds. Our chippies are relentless in emptying the sunflower feeder.

What a handsome mosaic for these very handsome woodland creatures. It so perfectly complements the little chipmunk. I have a thing for chipmunks.

Love to watch all the creatures scurrying & feeding, especially the hummers...it is endless :-)

Beautiful mosaic of your feathered, winged and furry friends. Looks like they are getting ready for the change of seasons.

You have a wonderful garden of friends!
My husband and I took a drive just this afternoon through a neighborhood we had considered moving to when we bought our current home. We marveled at how lucky we were to be right where we are with all the wildlife that surrounds us.

Well done! I especially like your picture of the squirrel. Have a grand day! Cathy

I too am not a great lover of squirrels as they eat the bird food and my bulbs!! What is the beautiful bird top left of the mosaic please?

Have a good week, Jackie in UK.

Hi Valerie, Thanks for stopping by for a visit from Mary's. I like what you did with the graphics of your mosaic- specifically what looks like a stack of pages. Really unique. Are you using a specific program? I just learned how to do them very recently and am combining both Photoscape and Picnik together to achieve some different looks. Your photos are so good. Love the ones of the squirrel and the bird on the branch.
:-) Sue

It's so true. They don't seem to get to relax at all, especially the hummers. I hope it's a good winter for your little friends. And wishing you a great week ahead. – g

Beautiful collage. And yes, no labor day for the animals! But you know... they actually don't mind laboring... I think they've got it right!
I enjoyed seeing all the little visitors that come your way! Cardinals are among my favorites.

Sorry I am late in visiting for Mosaic Monday, but betwen bad weather and attending a wake and funeral for a friend's father, I have not been online much this week

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…
