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

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!
