Awakening in the Sandbox for Mosaic Monday



April 24 mosaic


















I do believe I am seeing the Sandbox coming to life after the long winter.   The pond has about 30 fish in it of various sizes and colours and as of today we have one frog.  The Dicentra or Bleeding Heart is leafing out.  The purple crocus is so colourful I can see them from the kitchen window. The Hellibore is fading and changing from white to pale pink.  Everyday has another new surprise.   This gardener is happy again.   I hope that you are enjoying this Easter weekend.   

Mosaic Monday is hosted by Mary.   See you there.  Valerie

I love spring time, your flowers and garden look beautiful. It is neat to have the fish and frog in your pond. Lovely photos and mosaic.
Hi Val, I see spring has arrived in your garden. Beautiful sights for sure. I hope you found time to do a bit of gardening. hugs Jen.

I share in your excitement over the return of the garden. I am sure it is true that we appreciate it all the more for the wait!

Ponds are great and I love to sit and watch the fish swimming around.

The spring is the best time cause you can be surprised every day liked you said. I'm little sad to live Tuscany on wednesday cause I will loose the best moment of my yard but I hope the landscapes of Tuscany will substitute that:)
I love your bond and if I be honest I'm so envy for that and all those fishes. My yard is too small for a bond.
Isn't it fun seeing the garden wake up after winter. My first bleeding hearts bloomed for Easter!

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…
