Mosaic Monday

Today was a pretty day - sunny and cool - but oh so pretty.  The plan was to get out the leaf blower and clean the "winter" off the deck, leaves and twigs and such.  After the blowing we rearranged things a little and I potted up  a few of the flowers I'd bought this weekend.  It was so nice to work outdoors, neighbors passing by waving and greeting us - stopping to chat a little.  We even got the cushions out for the deck chairs and sat in the sun for a bit.

I had to make a second trip to the Garden Center to get these pink daisies - I've always wanted some.

The come in vibrant pink too.

And some primroses with giant flowers
Fringed in dark pink

They would all be lovely printed and framed.

I bought some more primroses this afternoon, too. The sun came out and it turned into a glorious day. I was tempted to get out and clean up the veranda for spring, but got side-tracked, hauling all the dead fall from last week's windstorm.

Those daisies look too pretty to be real! I love the vibrant colors! Your mosaic is beautiful. Would make lovely greeting cards! So nice to have a sunny day! xoxo

Oh how lucky you are that it is warm enough to get started on spring. I love the daisies. Still to cold here for plants.

My mom just bought one of those incredibly fuchsia cinerarias. She put it on her porch and it has brightened the whole space up. Aren't we lucky to have so many options with flowers these days? I've been doing my fair share of primrose buying this spring. Such a cheery little plant. Love your mosaic JoAnn. I have to figure the mosaic Mondays out still. Hugs neighbour. :)

Your whole entire post would be beautiful framed! The pink-fringed one is my favorite -- I don't remember ever seeing a primrose like that. (But it's been a while since I've seen any early spring flowers growing at all. Florida is different!).

Wow, gorgeous colors and lovely flowers. I wish it was warm here to plant flowers. I am a little envious of your Pretty daisies. Have a happy week!
