Flowers and Frost



Over the past week, we've had frost three consecutive nights. These photos were taken to show the damage in my little garden, but I was surprised how attractive "damage" can be. The wild strawberry plant was touched as was the little red azalea. You will note that I am very good at using a photo multiple times. I'm in my matchy-matchy phase. :D

To see many more wonderful mosaics, visit Mary at Little Red House!

  2. Hi Vee,

    I'm sure that wild strawberry will bounce right back and reward you with abundant fruit soon!

  5. I wish I'd put out strawberries this year. I think I need to make a little raised bed for them. Maybe I can get my hubby to make me one next year... sigh...

    I love your dandelion wishes project- I know your littles will love that idea! Can't you just see their cute faces when they give those dandelions a good blow?

  7. Yes, we had a few frosty nights, too. I think this will be a beautiful summer though, because of all the precipitation. I hope your plants were not damaged. Thanks for sharing at MM. :)

  9. Vee,

    The photos are stunning! Love the little strawberry plant in the middle and the mosaic itself is a work of art. I wish I had the will to want to learn Photoshop, it looks like so much fun.

    Have a happy Monday!

  16. Frost! Quelles Horror!!!

    Oh aren't you being clever with your picture showing! A neat new-to-me way of doing a mosaic. You are just tooooooo clever. :-)

    Really! You are! I still haven't gone back to "Big Blue Labs" or whatever it is, to even make old type mosaics. :-(

    Gentle hugs...........

  17. I do love your beautiful flower mosaics. I can't believe you have had frost! It has been in the upper 80's here for two solid weeks! Why is it, though, that a frost is so beautiful?

    Thank you for the birthday wish. it just feels strange this year, even though nothing has changed.

    Wishing you a lovely week,
    Jen

  22. Re: Putting lots of things into Banana Quick Bread... I have a basic Nut Bread With Variations recipe. The basic recipe in on one page, and the variations on another. When you add something, sometimes you lessen another ingredient.

    I-Love-This-Recipe! If you want it, I'll send it to you.
