The Spring Garden for Mosaic Monday

Hello, I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. It was beautiful here, sunny and warm after a few days of rain. Everything in the garden is now in a hurry to flower. I spotted my first hummingbird yesterday, spring is officially here when they arrive. At least for me.


I have finished my Lensbaby Magic photography class. While taking the class I kept the lens on the camera the whole time, forcing me to keep working on trying to capture a subject in focus.


The mosaic illustrates what is blooming in the garden this week using my Lensbaby.

I am joining Mary at Little Red House for
Why don't you drop by and visit.

Have a wonderful week!!!

You certainly have some very pretty flowers in your garden. I find focusing the camera quite difficult. At times the camera just doesn't want to comply!

That does sound like a wonderful weekend! Your mosaic is quite lovely and I loved your choice of blooms to share.

Beautiful photos. The Lensbaby course was fun but a hard learning curve. Valerie

I must be hungry...that tulip looks just like a peach to me! Am admiring all the life curled up in that fern frond just waiting...

Wow, Jen, you have taken this to a whole new level. I love your photos - the lens baby focuses in a way that gives a fairy-view of the flowers.

Beautiful mosaic of flowers - and so exciting that the hummingbirds have returned! I haven't seen one yet. Have a nice week.

Jen! Gorgeous photography!
Yes it is exciting seeing the garden come to live once again. The hummers are dive bombing to and from my numerous feeders! In a week I've made up 3 batches of sweet water!
Now if I could only capture a good image of one or two feeding..Zoom..off they go!
My condition has improved and I feel good..however my kitty cats are not so well..one goes to Vet for tests..Yikes. prayers please.
