Happy 6th blog Anniversary

I am linking up with   Mosaic Monday and Our World Tuesday   and NF Trees  They are both fun memes to participate in...I hope you can join in with the fun  and check out some of the participating posts.

I can not believe I have been blogging for 6 years now. My first post Birding with Eileen  posted on July 13, 2009 went by quietly.  These 6 years seemed to go by so quickly. For this post I am sharing mosaics made with photos taken on my previous anniversaries. I thank everyone who has been following me, visiting my blog and post during the past 6 years. And most of all thank you for all the wonderful comments.  Thank you all!


My first post July 2009, we went tubing on the Shenandoah River at Harper's Ferry, Md. The Baltimore Oriole is a breeder bird seen in the trees along the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers at Harper's Ferry.

My second anniversary July 2010, photos of our Prettyboy Lake, Goldie Girl, an Ovenbird and the moon all taken from the yard or around the neighborhood.


3rd Anniversary from July 2011,  the Great Kiskadee seen in Bermuda. We took a cruise from Baltimore to Bermuda with hubby and my son.


4th Anniversary July 2012 is my mosaic of  backyard birds, flowers and butterfly.


5th Anniversary July 2013, a mosaic sharing our visit to Shenandoah Nat'l Park. Includes the Range Mountain overlook, a Black Bear, Brown Thrasher, Eastern Towhee, a bunny and some fungi.



6th Anniversary..July 2014 is a mosaic of my backyard birds the Scarlet Tanager, Eastern Bluebird, Blue jay and the Great Crested Flycatcher with a Bluebird.

And to start off my 7th year of blogging I am sharing a July 2015 mosaic with a juvenile Cardinal and some of my backyard blooms.

I hope you enjoyed my anniversary post and my nature images. Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit. I appreciate the nice comments..

I use Pic Monkey to create my mosaics, you can use Pic Monkey free or pay for an upgraded version.
I hope you can join in on our fun at  Mosaic Monday and   Our World Tuesday  and NF Trees 

 Thanks to Judith our  host of Mosaic Monday and to the hosting group of Our World Tuesday: Arija, Gattina, Lady Fi, Sylvia, Sandy and Jennifer.  Also thanks to Monica for hosting NF Trees.
I wish everyone a happy week ahead!

  7. Happy Anniversary! What a nifty idea to commemorate your earlier posts with mosaics. I wouldn't have imagined so many people out tubing at the same time. We do have a Willamette River crossing here once a year in tubes, though. All your birds and scenes are interesting.

  49. Wow, 6 years already - congratulations Eileen! I have no idea when I started but will look it up.
    It has been a pleasure seeing your birds (mostly) and blooms here and on FB. I always know if I can't ID a bird, you'll likely know what it is and I appreciate that aspect from you as a blogging sister.
    Brought a lump to my throat to see Goldie Girl as you shared her often in your posts and I miss her too.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

  55. Congrats on your sixth anniversary. Time seems to fly when blogging. I started in 2007 with one blog and now I have four to manage. It's almost too much, especially since I don't have Internet access at my cabin home. That makes scheduling posts a must. I always enjoy your bird photos. - Margy

  79. Happy 6th Blogoversary Eileen, huge congratulations! You have developed a keen and loyal following for your posts. Your blogs and Saturday's Critters are amongst the most popular around. What would be interesting would be to see how many visits you have made during this time, as you are so generous in visiting others and in leaving lovely comments. What goes around comes around, as judged by the fact I had to take a bus to the end of your congratulatory comments here today! Enjoy :)
