A Touch of Spring - Mosaic Monday

Hello Everyone, I would like to thank everyone for their concern. My son and his partner's babysitter cancelled one week of the two week job and of course I came the rescue.

The garden is bursting with so much colour I had a hard time picking colours and flowers for my mosaic. I decided on a yellow and white theme.


Starting in the upper left corner and moving clockwise, 
 Tiarella, a yellow tulip, white daffodils
 and Stylophorum diphyllum (Wood Poppy)

I am joining Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.
Be sure to stop by and visit all the participants.

I enjoyed your visit and have a wonderful week!!

Oooo, ♥♥♥ those white daffs!! How pretty!
The shots of the trillium were wonderful too. I don't think I've ever seen one. At least to my knowledge. I don't play in the woods much these days. LOL

I'm relieved to hear your family is well & how nice that you got to see the grandkidlets! Mine are always good exercise for me. ~~insert rolled eyes~~

Oh how pretty!!! And it is wonderful that you are there to help your son out with babysitting... I always thing that a grandmother's love is such a special part of growing up... I only knew one of my grandparents, and missed that special bond.

Beautiful mosaic. All our Spring flowers are finished, waiting for the Summer ones to bloom. We have lots of roses in flower and that is about all at the moment.

Just having a new grandson, I wish I could spend more time with him. I will when my daughter goes back to work in about 9 months time for about three days a week. Until then I have to just keep visiting.

Love Jackie in Surrey, UK.

The blooms are coming so fast now and with all this rain it is hard to get all the photos done of them. Lovely mosaic. V

Yellow and white was a great choice for your mosaic this week, just stunning shots.
The white paper thin daffodils are my favourites.
Glad all is well now.
