Mosaic Monday







Mosaic What's Happening!


I took some time off last week. We had a doubleheader baseball game and lots of thunderstorms and lightening. This mosaic is a catch-up of sorts ... what's been blooming in Musashi's Garden -- new Irish Gold Hybrid Tea Rose and Double Knock Out Roses; the Jane Cowel
Hibiscus continues to bloom and bloom and bloom; the first harvest of Blue Lake Green Bush Beans from the balcony garden; the garden smells like gardenias -- heavenly; the one and only yellow day lily (note to self -- get more day lilies); the gorgeous red cannas; the pink cosmos dancing in the breeze and last, but not least to us, our baby doves both fledged on the same date and this is one of them. Exciting! They both are still around and eating at the buffet in Musashi's Garden. We'd know those beaks anywhere!

Have a wonderful week.

Joy to You!

I love the juxtaposing of the harvest of beans and the bird with the flowers!
Marvelous!

Wow, you have beans from the garden and I have not yet put our seeds into the garden. Beautiful blooms from the garden.

Lovely flowers. Baby doves sure are big babies - almost as big as the parents in no time.

Oh how beautiful! One of my favorite childhood memories is eating green beans straight out of the garden. My father always grew tons of them. :)

Beautiful stuff growing in your garden, Ms Snap ! Cosmos are a dear favorite of mine as they were what my dad planted every summer. Gorgeous in the breeze, as you say.
Enjoy your treasures today !
Big Love to you and Mr. Dragon.
