4th of July

HAPPY 4th of July to everyone!

I tried to make my mosaic this week with red, white and blue colors. So, I have some Bluejays, Cardinals, my pretty Bluebird, a Penta flower called Butterfly red, the flag on my deck and a pretty sky photo.



















I like these flowers and they reminded me seeing red fireworks exploding in the sky.

















































I am linking up with three memes with this post

  2. Ah, they're all a marvel to me Eileen. Great concept of making them into a collage to make post a lot easier. Wish I can hold one of those birds. Mine in my yards just want me to leave them alone to enjoy their feed!

    Have a safe day through the week! :)

    I always enjoy your nature.

  17. Love your nature mosaics. You are so lucky to have so many beautiful birds in your area. We have lots of seagulls here and every so often I spot a bird. We do have large cranes and one was in my driveway last week just walking back and forth and driving the dog nuts:-) I use to put out a feeder but other animals would eat from the feeder and then some decided to live in our attic so no more feeders for us.

    Best wishes and happy 4th of July from your Aussie friends,
    Natasha, Stacey and Holly.

  19. Great holiday pics. The cardinal looks embarrassed. The red flower is a Penta , sometimes called a star flower. I love them so easy to grow.

  27. Good Morning, Eileen!

    I hope all is well with you. Loved seeing your mosaics, and I agree, I think the pintas in that shot do resemble firework. I just planted some in our yard (they are pinkish), and I am hoping they do well.

    Hope you had a wonderful Fourth and that you have a Happy Blue Monday, too!

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is my blog about the birds I see, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They might not always be the best of photos because I like to keep photos as a record of where and when I see them.
I appreciate all your comments and I will always try to return the favor and visit your blog.

Due to some recent problems I will not be able to publish any comments that include a link. I would appreciate if you do not include any kind of links in your comments. Sorry!
