St. Patrick’s Day Mosaic

 

Even though my husband’s family and my own came from Ireland many years ago to Canada we like to wear our green on St. Patrick’s Day each year.  Ireland is a wonderful place to visit if you ever have the chance to go. 

Mosaic for St Pats day

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have used a Florabella texture as a background that was offered on her Facebook page this week.   Have a great week.   I am going to be at Canada Blooms this week soaking up the smell of spring flowers and dirt.   I am giddy with anticipation after this long long winter.   If you are at Canada Blooms this week on Wednesday I will be in Room 102 at the Master Gardener stage where I will be introducing the speakers until lunch and on Thursday I will be one of the tour guides for the early morning tours.   Stop by and say hello.   Valerie

On Monday Mary is our host for Mosaic Monday.  Come join us.

Hi Val
I'll look for you Wed. and email about Saturday for driving down.
I also am excited about attending Blooms, good motivation for spring gardening. Hopefully I can get some shrub pruning done this week too while it's mild.

Although I'm just as much Italian as I am Irish...this is the time I pretend to be all Irish!
I've done an Irish mosaic also!!

Karen said...

My mosaic this week was pictures of my family all getting our heads shaved at the St. Baldrick’s Festival to help find a cure for childhood cancers. After seeing yours, I could have dome one with my 4 pinning wheels and all of my many cards and photos from Ireland. Maybe next year. Your is beautiful and so perfectly assembled. a lovely post and a fine collage.

I'm "green" with envy. Being around flowers and dirt all week and a Master Gardener too. We have a MG program here once a year that I want to take but I can't talk myself into using a week's vacation to do it! Yet. You've got a great blog.

Jill Harrison said...

Thankyou for the little taste of Ireland. Enjoy Canada Blooms, and thank you also for stopping by my blog. It was lovely to hear from you.

The Luck of the Irish to you! I enjoyed your Irish mosaic.

What a pretty mosaic!
If I could, I'd be at Canada Blooms - in fact, back in early January had intended to be in Toronto for one of my sister's plays and then at Canada Blooms - but life interfered. I'll enjoy it vicariously through the internet.

Canada Blooms would be a lovely place to visit just now. I'm loving all the fresh green in this mosaic - spring is almost here!
