Mosaics & the Outdoors

Last Friday we had a beautiful blue sky and warm temps . I had some errands to run and I decided to keep going down the road in search of Spring flowers. The blooming trees were full of buds ready to explode. These are some pictures I took and turned them into a mosaic.
Click to enlarge photos.

I am linking up with Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday, and Mary @ Little Red House for Mosaic Monday. Be sure and visit Susan and Mary to see what they, and the other participants have to share with us.

Hope you are having a great week !

This is a gorgeous mosaic, Glenda!

We have grey skies today. Thankful we didn't get the snow the western side of Missouri has. It was predicted but passed us by or rather quit before it got here!

Love all the spring flowers. We only have a TINY bit of green here in No. Illinois.

I love that I can see spring other places and know that it will be getting to us in 2 or 3 more weeks.

Happy Springy Sunday. We have snow from yesterday on the ground still. xo Joan@anythinggoeshere

So many people have flowers already! Sure wish we did but it will be a while longer.

Yes, winter holds on as long as it can, dangit!

Isan't it exciting when those first buds start appearing on the trees. We enjoyed our wonderful spring weather here in Massachusetts too. ~Jeanne

Glenda, the weather looks so beautiful to be outdoors! Lovely blue skies. I could see some pink trees blooming!

Rain is good, and hopefully, it helps those buds to come out early!

Have a great day!

Your mosaic is so beautifully done. Look like spring has arrived where you live, here too! And allergies!

Genny said...

I love spring flowers, and your mosaic is beautiful. The redbuds will be blooming soon here, and the combination of the white dogwoods and fuschia or purple colored redbuds are irresistible.

Kammy said...

Oh how beautiful. We don't have flowers yet...just the beginnings of green peeking through. I love your miniatures...that general store is amazing!

Thank you so much for the prayers for my mom, we need them. It means more to me than you know.

Rettabug said...

Spring has certainly arrived where you live, Glenda! I ♥ those purple pansies!! I saw that our garden center had some out for sale finally. I may grab a few to plant just to hurry Spring along up here.

This is my first visit to your beautiful blog & I must tell you, your miniatures brought back fond memories. DH had a dear, dear patient who owned a garage FULL of such doll houses. She became gravely ill & we made house calls to her many, many times before she died. Her first grandchild was about to be born & I was praying it would be a little girl, so her little houses would be loved & appreciated. Never found out but your collage of miniatures had me smiling & remembering Virginia. Thank you!

Meri said...

Uh oh - another "drive-by shooting." That's Oprah's next big campaign -- to get us to stop taking photos as we drive.

Meli said...

Glenda, the photos of the plants are so lovey!! We have the same weather here. One day sun and the rest rain!!! We are not used to have so much rain so it's making us get tired of so many days with grey sky!!
Have a great week
Warm regards,
Meli

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Oh, look at your flowers in bloom! I can't wait, are you driving and taking pics??? Sounds like me, you naughty blogger! hehe. just kidding. Cindy

Cass @ That Old House said...

Oh wow -- you are so far ahead of us in spring blooms. I had to enlarge your mosaic to really appreciate -- and envy!!! -- all those gorgeous spring colors and flowers.
We've got a few crocuses popping up, but that's it so far!
You give me hope.
AND I just looked out the window, and the lilac buds are GREEN!

Desires of the Heart said...

Hi Glenda, Thanks for visiting me after such a long time between posts! Loved seeing your cute dollhouse and general store. I have a store very similar. Remember when those were just the thing in miniatures. Everyone made one. You are really good at the beautiful mosiacs!! That is something I have yet to try. It's probably too complicated for me! Ha. Have a great evening. Linda

Happy To Be/ Gl♥ria said...

Glenda, all your photos are awesome girl and look at all the flowers you found...is it not so fun to finally see flowers blooming and birds singing I know I'm sure doing my Happy Dance right now...just think in a few months every one will be complaining about the heat ha ha !! thanks for a fun post girl...Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

Pat Harris said...

I love your mosaic. We'll be having flowers soon. Right now just daffodils. My flowering almond is budding out. I can see touches of pink.

Thank you for your prayers for my Granddaughter Sarah. She did well through the surgery and is home resting. I appreciate you so much for taking the time to offer prayers for her and our family. Blessings, Pat
