April Showers Brought May Flowers to the Sandbox


May 1 flowers















The April Showers we have been having lately have brought the flowers up in the garden.  Can you believe it is already May?   How fast the seasons go when you enjoy them.    My mosaic consists of a pink hyacinth, the double bloodroot, grape hyacinth, the tips of a hosta, red tulips planted 24 years ago are still making their entrance each spring, the white hyacinth and friend, red Pulsatilla or Pasque flower and finally the native bloodroot.

I will be adding my mosaic to Mosaic Monday with our host Mary.    Hope you have a great week.  Valerie

Beautiful flowers for your mosaic.Tulips that last 24 years were a great investment. I love the pasque flower but mine did not survive a cold winter.

Your garden is coming along beautifully! Isn't it lovely to see the flowers again?

Wow 24 year old tulips...what a great investment. All your flowers are lovely and it's nice to read their names as I'm not good with knowing any but the common flowers!
Your spring flowers all look very beautiful, especially the red tulips! What a wonderful durability for those bulbs to last all these years!
Beautiful flower box, makes me want to create one too...
How pretty! I have some similar blooms but only have single blood root - the double is beautiful. Red and yellow tulips certainly seem to be the most hardy.

Beautiful flowers. I wish we had some April showers. Perhaps in May! Happy May Day and Happy Monday!
Hi Val
Tulips lasting that long must be a very hardy variety.
I'm getting too old to shop all weekend. :-)

Very nice mosaic. I hope to plant more bulbs this fall so my yard will have more plants this time next year. For a very little time and effort you get results for years - like with your red tulips! Nancy

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…
