Mosaic Monday - Flower Bouquets for Spring

Today is the first day of spring and I am celebrating with flower bouquets.
These arrangements were entered in a floral design class at Canada Blooms.


L. H. Bailey's poem titled Spring describes how I feel about this season.

Yesterday the twig was brown and bare;
To-day the glint of green is there;
Tomorrow will be leaflets spare;
I know no thing so wondrous fair,
No miracle so strangely rare.
I wonder what will next be there!

I am joining Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.
She is a gracious host and would love a visit.

Thanks for stopping in and have a great week!!

Having joined Mosaic Monday this week I am now enjoying blog hopping around the world admiring everyone else's beautiful photography and gaining inspiration. It cheers me when so much of the world around us is in turmoil for one reason or another.
