A Few More Glads...


Another collage/mosaic I created from the pics I took of some  glads, and put on the back burner some time ago.  Just digging around in the archives as I try to wait patiently for the

 new beginnings of Spring 2013.  Temps to sporadic right now to plant some pretty annuals - So will try to be patient. 

Linking up @ "Mosaic Monday"
                       "Make It Pretty Monday"

The sky is blue, the sun is shining, it is 66 climbing to 76 today, so this is a short post - and I am out of here to soak up some vitamin D. Will check back later.

Update:    Worked outside and took an enjoyable walk - the warm sun felt good. Came in,  had  lunch and checked email, then noticed a robin setting very still under a chair in the courtyard.  Was concerned  as it appeared to be immobile at first.  Grabbed camera and this was the best shot I could get as it flew away when I walked up to the door.....
 Maybe just tired from building a nest for the next generation ??
Have a great weekend!

We are suppose to be in the 80's today but down in the 40's by Saturday. It's too risky to plant anything right now here. Spring will be here soon and stay.

Pretty photos.

Don't glads make a stunning bouquet! I just saw my first spring robin this morning, pecking something at the side of the road.

Your glads are lovely! The first mosaic is beautiful, the colors are so pretty together. Your Robin must be taking a rest. Have a happy week!

I'm so ready for spring. The sun is shining but its only 40 degrees today, burr too cold for anything outside.
Hugs Lynn

Your glads are beautiful, Glenda. I'm sure you're looking forward to seeing them again. How wonderful to get outside into the sunshine!

Oh I adore glads. Every year I tell myself that I will plant some, but they are a bit of a pain to care for, I think. Am I right about that? Yours are beautiful and the mosiac is charming.

Patty said...

I envy you getting out for a walk. I need to do that badly!

It will be weeks before I see such warm temperatures. Snow is in the forecast tomorrow:( Enjoy the wonderful weather.

I love glads. Well, my husband bought all his yard stuff today...weed stuff, grass stuff etc. Just as he left, the snow started. It didn't stick, but it sure isn't spring around here! I'm so tired of brown/gray ugly. We did have that one nice day last week! There is hope!

Love your beautiful pictures! I just love Spring and I am so ready for warmer weather. Hope you have a great week!

The gladiolas are beautiful Glenda.

We are having some of the dreariest weather. We need to make a run to the state capital but just can't get in the mood.

Have lots of plans for the yard, but just can't get to it.

Gladiolas are one of my favorites.

How wonderful it must have been to work outside and feel warm sun. It's snowing here today :( My husband did see some robins in the park a couple of days ago when he was talking his walk so that's a good sign.

Wow Your Spring is way ahead of ours! But we live in Minnesota! Just had another snow storm last night!
Your glads are lovely as is your mosaic! Love hearing about Robins. Gives me hope.

I simply adore Glads Glenda and yours look fabulous!
As you know I am dying for spring but all we have is still snow.
I would just be happy with rain!
