Seattle Blue Mosaic Monday!

If it’s almost Monday it is time for some Blue and some Mosaic fun. Visit Mary at The Little Red House for Mosaic Monday and Sally at Smiling Sally for Blue Monday.

On Friday I took a walk at Juanita Bay Park and at St. Edwards State Park and the Robins were very active. Some were busy gathering nest material.

Seattle Blue is very well represented by our Seattle Sounders F.C. team(Soccer!) Bottom right photo…our wonderful son Josh, an amazing photographer and friend Jeremy Leffel, Our friend and computer programmer extraordinaire Beau, and our favorite family doctor Dave. Beau, Josh and I have a total of 5 season ticket seats together. Fun times. We were so happy we beat the Kansas City Wizards 1-0 in the 2nd to the last minute of the game. Sheesh. Keep us on the edge of our seats!

If and when my daughter gets married her wedding date will depend on whether Jeremy is available to take photos!! Yes, he’s that good!

Do you notice anything missing in the photo on the right in this mosaic? While my son and I were at the soccer game Dear and Katie chopped down that pine tree. Dear tied the tree securely to Katie’s trailer pull, made a precision cut angled just right and Katie pulled it down with her car. I was so sorry to be gone while this took place. I would have loved to have gotten photos of it coming down…

And before any tree huggers come after me, we had to take it down because it was damaging our roof and allowing rats free access to the garage!!

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. There are more trees where that one came from!!
    All the robin pictures just make me sing!! Robins are so NW friendly and I can’t remember when they were’nt apart of my memory! Don’t they have the prettiest eggs?
    If and when..sounds like the beginning of a secret! :))

  2. You know one of the best things about me going to Seattle is now I know where a lot of these places are πŸ™‚ I just love it. What great photos and I love how the tree was cut down. I must say I like it better with out it there. πŸ™‚ Tree huggers ROFLMAO!!!! It looks cleaner without it and be damned Ben ROFLMAO!!!

  3. Multiple mosaics! What a great idea. Those robins look as though the wormies have been good to them this spring so far.

  4. The robin mosaic is beautiful – so very appropriate for all over the country where the robins are plentiful and beautiful! Such clear and crisp photos. Very nicely done!

  5. I love the trees, but I’d take it down, too, if it was causing damage! We just lost two in a Nor’Easter that pulled down electrical wires!

    Gorgeous mosaics of the birds! Enjoyed your mosaics!

  6. Great pictures. I have tried to photo some robins around here the last several days, but they take off, before I can get a picture. Busy building nests right now, I guess. πŸ™‚

  7. Beautiful, fat robins – their breasts are especially red this year, I find.
    I hope you don’t get too much trouble from people unhappy about the tree – just ask them if they’d like to take on a rat or two!

  8. Today I saw a couple of robins and a big bird’s nest on a tree while walking down a busy street towards downtown. The first thing I regretted was that I didn’t have my camera with me. Interesting that’s what I saw first thing on your post!

  9. Wonderful mosaics. Wonderful combination … robins and sports! For the tree huggers … plant an extra tree on Earth Day! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  10. We save our dryer lint for the birds to make their nests – it’s amazing how many of them fly off with a beak full of fluff! Love your robins!


  11. Lovely mosaics! The robins are beautiful. We just discovered a bird’s nest on a light fixture by the front door. Fun to watch the birds. Have a great week, Ellen!

  12. I’ll have to agree with that reasoning…the tree had to go!

    Our last tree removal was hysterical when it wasn’t terrifying.

    It is so good to see all of the robins around here again.

    Great post.

  13. Such a pity about the tree… We had to take down a lovely 100+ year old pear tree two years ago… the property still looks odd without it! But such a fun post to start the week here… Happy Days, Ellen :o) ((HUGS))

  14. Oh my, Katie is such a heroine — please tell her I am thoroughly impressed! πŸ™‚

    It seems to me you are more of a soccer fan compared to Mr. B? Just curious…

    Have a great week.

  15. Sounds like one interesting game…I love those kind. I joined my niece at a game…where she is goal tender…in the final shoot out…they lost.
    So exciting.
