At the Mill Pond

swans mosaic

I had to see our family Doctor in nearby Richmond Hill the other day.  My foot has healed now and I can get back to normal activities.   I will have to watch where I am going.   Oh, and I have to have a bone scan too.    On my way home I decided to pass by the Mill Pond in the centre of town for a quick look to see if there was anything to photograph.   It was chilly that day but there were three white swans on the bank and some seagulls out in the middle.  There was a find skim of ice over the pond.  I quickly captured these lovely creatures and then scee-daddled back to the van.  

I am joining Mary our hostess for Mosaic Monday.   Hope you are not too stressed out with the Christmas shopping.  We decorated the Christmas tree so you will see some of the ornamentation over the coming weeks.   Have a great week.  Valerie

What graceful beauties. Your mosaic captures them so nicely. Glad to hear you're on the mend. It's never any fun to have foot problems. Especially during such a busy time of year!

Swans are so beautiful. We collect them here. No, not real ones, but decorative ones. You did a great job of capturing them in their various poses; it makes for an elegant mosaic.

Beautiful mosaic of such lovely birds.
Take care.
Gorgeous swans! They are beautiful but I know from personal experience they can be quite aggressive too!

Have a good week! Anja

Swans are always so elegant, in the water and in the air. I like to go down to the Esquimalt Lagoon to see them - and I love it when they make a 'heart' with their necks!

Beautiful swans. Glad to hear your foot is back to normal.

The swans are beautiful!
Although my only experience with a swan involved a golf course, lots of squawking, and me running!!
They are beautiful creatures though!

What a pretty mosaic! Great photos.
Hi Val
I spent many a winter skating on the Mill Pond as I grew up in Richmond Hill.
The swans you captured there are beautiful - glad you braved the cold to photograph them.

I remember walking my children around this pond in all four seasons! Looks mighty chilly for those swans today!

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…
