Mosaic Monday

The kids went back to school today........and the house is so quiet. Storm clouds are hanging over the house with lots of thunder booming...but no rain. Sort of fits how I feel.

I always get sad when school starts back up again. I truly love having the kids home with me. I know it won't be long before they grow up and move on with their own lives. As for school, I start back to work next week...just have some meetings and planning to do this week.

Today is mosaic Monday and I thought I'd show this old planter I did.
I think it was the second or third thing I did. It has held many plants over the years... the mosaic adds a barrier which helps keep moisture in...

These purple oxalis were in pot that broke so I moved them here....and they are happy. You can see one regular green oxalis poking its little head up....must have been a volunteer!

It's beautiful! The plant is the perfect color to compliment the mosaic.
I hope the kids have a good first day. I never like the beginning of school either and I'm a teacher. It's hard to give up summertime at home with your kids and go back to working again. I love being home so I can relate to how you feel.

School started here too. I'm feeling a bit lost myself. We had thunder and lightening plus lots of rain this morning. It did stop in time to get to the bus stop though.

Another nice planter. Those oxalis seem to love to grow everywhere. We have them all over the place.

Hi Val, all of your mosaic planters are beautiful! Enjoy this last week before you head back to school. Tomorrow I will actually do the cleaning that I've been putting off. :/ Thanks for your email, best wishes, Tammy
