End of Summer View


Bugs and Flowers Mosaic

It is the beginning of the last week of summer 2013. Can you believe it!!  I am supposed to be out cutting the grass this afternoon but I wanted to show you some of the late summer blooms that are in the Sandbox garden.   I love this showy variety of cosmo called Pink Pom Pom in the top left corner.    I spotted under a shrub the colchicum flowers.   I never know when they will show up as one day there is nothing there and the next they are in bloom.  The rest of the pictures are showing you that the bees are still busy gathering pollen.

I am joining Mosaic Monday with Mary at DearLittleRedHouse.   I hope you have a great week.

The pom-pom cosmo is beautiful, Lovely blooms and mosaic! Happy Sunday!
Hi Val
I like the pom-pom cosmo, and I saw my colchicums starting to peek through yesterday. A lot of wasps are on the flowers too.
Mary has cancelled this week, thought you might like to know.

I was out for most of the morning looking for the last bits of color. I actually found more than I thought I would.

As always, your mosaics are so beautiful, Valerie.

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead.

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…
