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

 for Mosaic Monday  Thanks to the host Mary of Little Red house
and
Blue Monday   Thanks to host, Sally of Smily Sally
and
Ruby Tuesday  Thanks to host, Mary  of Work of the Poet

Thanks to everyone who visit my blog and post, Have a great 4th of July and a great week.

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.

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.

I love visiting your blog as I get to see so many birds that we don't have here in Australia. Thanks for posting about them and of course, for your wonderful pictures!

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

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.

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 :-)
