  1. What a lovely post - I wish I knew how to do mosaics with my pics it is so effective! Hasn't it been a beautiful day today?!

  2. Hello M J and thank you!
    My first mosaic ever and it's easy-peasy if you've got Picasa; if you haven't, you can download it free and it sorts out all your pics!

    Wish I could work out what's gone wrong with my LinkWithin.

  3. A very spring-full collage. I think honeysuckle leaves are at their most attractive at this stage.

  4. P.S. When you say Picassa organises your photos for you - what does that mean? I'd like to be able to make collages but I don't want to download anything that would take my pictures out of my control.

  5. Hello Esther. It certainly is spring - full! Spring is happening all over. It amazes me every year! That rose hasn't even been pruned yet so the lovely new leaves will have to go (Black Spot).

    I've sent you an email reply about Picasa.

  6. I am jealous that spring has arrived in your garden. Mine is still snow covered.

  7. Hello Jennifer!

    Well, yes it was lovely while it lasted! Fortunately, we don't have snow but it has certainly turned cold and miserable again.

  8. Certainly has turned cold again, glove's back on, I may even light the wood-burner this evening. Nice little collage of photos of the promise of spring we were offered at the end of last week.

  9. You are brilliant. After years of me extolling the surprising beauty of ground elder, you are the first person to have pointed out that I am looking at Alexanders and mis-identifying it! I am pretty certain you are right - though looking at photos of its flowers on the internet . . . they look tighter than the flowers on the plants here . . . so . . .

    Looks as if I have a lot of work ahead of me. Before Message in a Milk Bottle was Pictures Just Pictures and, throughout the time I've been posting, there's been Loose and Leafy too - so there will need to be a lot of back-tracking and re-labelling . . . and, meanwhile, photos with the wrong name have escaped into the general atmosphere of the internet.

    Many thanks. I'm so glad you left the note. I don't feel tempted to eat them - but I do like the idea of getting things right!

  13. Thanks James! I haven't been able to get properly warm since the weather turned so cold again!

  14. I've just posted a post with a rag bag of thoughts. Although it's a commonly used term, it may well be that it came into my mind because I've recently begun to read your blog. Therefore, I've put a link to you here. Hope that's ok.

  15. That's fine, Esther! Thanks, I'm rather pleased. But I'm on the drag (do you know/use that expression?), so I shall read your post later. I need to make the most of the lovely sunshine we're having just now! I only work part-time but it tends to throw out my entire routine - if I have one!

  16. Mags, your garden looks to be at a very similar stage to mine, my goodness wasn't that sunshine welcome yesterday!

    Lovely mosaic and I concur with your 'Note to Self'!!

    Thanks for the links too.

  17. Yes, Jeanne (your name is French!), yesterday's sunshine was glorious, but it was still very cold, here. I do like to feel warm in the garden.

    My 'Note to Self' is always there...!! And I intend to try more mosaics - that was my first and it was quite fun!

    I'm pleased you found some useful links - I've found some on your blog, too. The thanks are, therefore, reciprocated!
