Springtime!

It's Springtime!
Today we started with a cool morning and will have a high near 90.
The humidity starts coming back late today.


Springtime Mosaic



I wanted to do some experimenting with some of the mosaics I have presented before
and add some shots to celebrate Springtime and Easter.

The Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush are in bloom on the Rice University campus.

Springtime Mosaic

It seems like Spring happens for the first time each year!
Do you remember the blooms being this lovely last year?
Or the sky as blue (on those days without humidity)?
Listen to the birds sing!
New life.
New beginnings.
Courage and strength.

I'd like to thank
Mary at Mosaic Monday
and

for being wonderful hosts.

Wishing you WELL and a JOY filled week!

What beautiful mosaics! I am waiting for Spring to arrive, unseasonably cold, and no flowers yet!

Wishing you courage and strength, too, Snap. I think every year when spring finally comes after a cold hard winter, it's the best there ever was!

I am so glad you stopped by. It seems that we must live in the same area of Houston. It's nice to think of someone being close by since most of my blog friends seem to be far away. Coffee sometime in the Village?

Hmmm, yes - courage and strength are sometimes what is needed to face a new season. Spring rarely calls that out of me though as I spend half a year looking forward to new growth and warmth. I love all your mosaic pieces. Love all the things you include - tea, buddhism, blooms and birds and and and....I hope you are finding your own strength and courage to face this season that speaks of new life and forward movement.

The flowers look so inviting but the temperature...not so much. :)

Wonderful mosaic combinations and truly delightful pairings of "new life" with "new beginnings, courage and strength." (I remember seeing that sweet snail before. He's so unique that I couldn't forget him.)
