These images were taken across the lane from my home, in Mona's flower garden and at Foxhollow Farm and the Anchorage Trail~
Short and sweet and yet so long ;)
Many of you leave comments for which I am forever grateful.
Many of those comments speak of the work that goes into each mosaic.
This blog, the images, are my pride and joy to share.
I take the photographs, place them in Picasa folders and then when I have free time, usually after dinner in the evenings, I begin the long process.
I edit each and every photo, over 72,000 have been edited so far.
Then I decide which images to delete...you have to see the finished photo before you can delete it and I can delete over 10,000 images in a day...ha I did it once and it took forever to empty my recycle bin!
Then I decide on which images to place into the mosaics and I am very colour sensitive, and have to use like minded colours on the same post...however bad that sounds, it almost always looks nice together...right ;)
Then it is which if any images go solo.
With so many edited images that I like, it is very difficult to choose just one, and so I love thus use of mosaics.
All of this being stated, I have way too many drafts in the cache and I am going to need to publish 2 posts into my favorite memes this week.
I may have to do this for a couple of weeks, as I will want to share my vacation journey for the end of September.
And here we are number two of two posts for this published set.
Trying so hard to get caught up with all of the drafts I have loaded and ready to go.
Thank you so much for your kindness always~

I will be linking up with Judith for:
Wild Bird Wednesday
Bumblebees and Bluebirds, doing what they do best.
The bee collecting pollen and the Bluebird feeding it's young.
This time a grasshopper~
After spending part of my morning visiting Foxhollow Farm I went to another favorite place to walk the Anchorage Trail, where I took the Monarch Butterfly images~
Bluebird with a worm in it's mouth to feed a young one in a nest box nearby~
These American Goldfinch photos were taken along the fields of Anchorage Trail~
I have seen Indigo Buntings a few times on the trail.
Always a treat to see these little beauties~
