Spending quality time with my buds

Many thanks to Ann at OnSuttonPlace for teaching me how create this collage! Thanks Ann!


Things are budding 
and some are even blossoming 
in the gardens here.





What's blooming 
along your garden paths?
















Thanks for stopping by today.
Always look forward to your visits.

Hi Alison...well done on the mosaic! Wasn't it fun? Your blooms are lovely...only blooms I have are a few clematis. We so badly need some sun! Enjoyed your post as always... ~Ann

You have beautiful gardens and flowers blooming. We are still in the daffodil, tulip stage here because of the cool, rainy, weather, however, it's about to change for the better tomorrow. Thanks so much for your kind help with my kitchen sink dilema. I will be looking further this week. I didn't realize how expensive they can be! :-) I always enjoy seeing your home. Blessings, Pamela

Hi Alison, I always think that making collages builds character. I must have a lot by now. Making headers nearly makes me crazy. Your buds are very good looking folks and I would definitely hang out with them. ♥O

Alison, your mosaic is gorgeous. I need more practice. My mosaics are not this good. I need a lesson in how to size the photos to include a group like this without loosing much of the photo. ;-)
Your buds and blooms are gorgeous. The magnolias are in full bloom here. My morning walks are so fragrant. Loving it! ~ Sarah

Such beautiful pics! Love the mosaic! Our Hyacinths are putting on a show and our Lilacs are just about ready to pop. In fact with as much rain as we've had, everything is looking quite lush. Love the horse in the middle of it all. Thanks for sharing.

All your "BUDS" are beautiful! I ahve azaleas and rhododendrons blooming right now and all the MANY pots I plant each year! We have about 30 azaleas and probably 50 rhodos. It is so pretty right now but the darn RAIN is beating the heck out of the bushes! XO, Pinky

We loving perfect temps. right now and rain every week. We can't complain with this Spring...except maybe for the hail storm I posted that lasted 10 min. but does so much damage.
Your flowers are beautiful!
