I didn't have much time to play around with collages today but here is the one of the Grocery Store Bouquet from yesterday.

Looking forward to warm spring days and flowers beginning to peek out of the ground.

All for tonight.

Another wintery day

It's another wintery day in Minnesota.  I've been playing with my camera and Picasa.  Here are some pictures of the geraniums that I wintered over and a grocery store bouquet.


I had a couple of collages made but can't figure out how to import them.  I keep getting an error when I try.  So I will try again tomorrow.  Looking forward to being in the garden soon!

Where is Spring?

The calendar says it's spring, but I can't see it.  This is what I have been seeing out my kitchen window all winter.

   This is what I am waiting to see.

                                                                        and this

                                                                       and this


These are flowers from my garden last summer.  I can't wait for them to appear again!

Things I love about spring are birds singing and splashing in the bird bath, the oriole eating at the feeder, the green grass, the sound of lawnmowers and the smell of fresh cut grass the smell of rain and the sound of the rain on the roof, leaves on the trees, the flowering trees and shrubs, and digging in the dirt.  Oh, I love everything about Spring!

Happy Spring everyone!
