The Chippy’s Contribution to the Sandbox Garden


sunflower mosaic

The Sandbox Chipmunks must have thought there was not enough colour in the garden so they planted many sunflower seeds all over and now I have bright yellow in every corner.  I could not be happier as they are quite spectacular in all their various forms.  They will be great for a few more photos until the seeds start to ripen and then down they will come with the help of other wildlife critters who like to snack on them. 


I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.    Have a wonderful week.

gorgeous - they really are the flower of summer. I wonder why I have never grown them - perhaps I should have a go this summer.
Have a wonderful week.

Beautiful photo!
Have a nice day! RW & SK
One year I tossed some dead sunflowers out in the yard and they "came back" the next season. They attracted so many birds and wild life. Every season that patch got bigger and bigger and I never did a thing to it.

Late summer sunflowers are lovely gifts from your chipmunk friends. And it sounds like there will be more of them next year, too.

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…
