Savoring Time in the Garden Sunday

Photos from my garden this past week. The last flush of roses, one of my favorite dahlias and a spider web I caught reflecting the sunlight.  This weekend my grandson, Mack, celebrated his first birthday. I made a pastel portrait of him to bring to his birthday party today.

Happy Birthday, Mack!


I'm joining Mosaic Monday at Little Red House.
