Photo Collage and Purple Blossoms

It has been a cool, rainy week end, so I haven't really been out in the garden or anything.  So, for Mosaic Monday, I thought I would post some more of my lovely lilacs!  I was messing around with some editing in Picnik and this is what I came up with... enjoy!  and be sure to check out the other great mosaics at Mary's Dear Little Red House.








There are still 3 different variety lilac bushes in our yard that are just about ready to bloom...




I actually saw a cedar waxwing in the yard yesterday!  I got so excited, I probably scared him away.   I really hope he comes back though...


The peonies are soon ready to show their colors, and I think I will have lots of daisies too !


Here's hoping for some sunshine this week...we really haven't had any hot weather yet.
Wishing you all a great week and don't forget to stop and smell the flowers!  I have found some more photo linky parties to link to,be sure to check them out!

Sending lots of sunshine & good weather vibes your way! It's been beautiful here for the past few days, but it's not going to last. Showing thunderstorms for the rest of the week. Beautiful photos of your beautiful lilacs by the way.

How beautiful. The first image is my favorite. Lilacs are gone from here now, but there are lots more flowers to look forward to.

Enjoy your day!
