For the first time, I am joining Mosaic Monday hosted by Judith at Lavender Cottage. Since August is my blog anniversary month, I thought I'd do a bit of a reminisce of the Garden Spot over this last year and revisit some of my favorite mosaic title banners.
We have an active family to look after: the golden boy Sundance, his pal Pop, the Ladies in charge of Egg Production, and the most unfriendly cat in the universe Mo. Cute cat, but not cuddly.
Broken hearted with the loss of our beloved Max, we finally gave into the loneliness and brought home Baby Boone. He is growing into a handsome handful. A rescue from a Nebraska adoption agency, he is now part of the Garden Spot Landscape.
Life is a bowl of cherries here at the Garden Spot, sweetened by making new friends. Meet PomPom, fellow blogger.
Muddy feet, dirty hands, helping hands, we all pitch in here. Sadly, little white hen Snow has joined some of her flock sisters in Hen Heaven. The Head Gardener always has a project or two in the works.
We love pink: peonies, roses, and strawberries.
While not in chronological order, here are some of the banners that I have used over the years:
This is one my favorite title banners. It pretty much sums up what we are about here.
I love decorating for the holidays and while I am a pink person, I get all aglow with the warmth of fall colors.
Sunflowers grow wild here and are given free reign to seed and reseed wherever they want. Another one of my favorite banners.
I really liked this series of collages that I had fun making using Great Grandma's garden cultivator that the Head Gardener still uses to ditch the vegetable garden. I can't remember if I actually used this collage.
Colorado's state flower the Blue Columbine was another favorite banner that I used for a while.
I could go on and on as I look back at my library of photos and mosaics that I have created since becoming a blogger. Let me leave you with one of the first mosaics that I created representing the first growing season here at the Garden Spot, the Summer of 09 as I learned how to use Picasa to edit photos and create wonderful picture collages.
So glad that you stopped by to visit. Love your sweet comments yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Enjoy your Labor Day.
