Mosaic Monday #44 - A Walk in the Park

Some mornings rather than walk our dog Topaz, we drive down to the park at the lake and let him run off some energy.
Although this is the nicest part of the park by the water, we stay at the far end where we're less likely to run into people as dogs are supposed to be on a leash.
I took a few photos with my phone the last time we went to the park and found some interesting things to snap.
Poor Topaz is tired after all that walking and running. Back home to nap on a chair in the living room which I planted in a bed of tulips with the help of PiZap.
*I've found some weeks Blogger gives me grief trying to leave a comment at various blogs and after a couple of tries I may forget to come back. I apologize if I miss visiting anyone.

  2. Topaz and Lucy look like they could be boone companions.
    Nice photos. Today's phone cameras are getting better and better.

  3. I used to love taking our dogs down to the beach dog park. Topaz looks just as happy as my malamutes were after a walk. Also looks like you're having brilliant weather. Isn't it so nice after that terrible winter you've had? Hope you have a lovely week Judith.

  4. Oh Judith, what a gorgeous lake! It looks like the sea... You are so lucky to have such beautiful views.
    There are beautiful wild flowers in your photos, and the tulips "around" the cute Topaz are lovely. :)
    Once more I link and run... to paint my parents' veranda. I will come back to visit other blogs as soon as I can.
    Thank you for hosting lovely Mosaic Monday and have a great week!

  5. That first photo of the water is just beautiful. That park would be a favorite of mine too. And nothing's sweeter than that Topaz. I'm going to have to check out that photo editing program. Looks like fun. Thank you for hosting.

  9. I'm sure Topaz enjoys the water, especially on the hot days. Yesterday and today have been chilly days but thankfully we got some rain.

  13. Dear Judith.
    I like the first photo. It is a beautiful scene,and I feel slightly cool breeze from the lake! Topaz is so lovely. She knows well her place, and must be so happy on the pretty flower bed.

  17. First of all, it is looking incredibly beautiful here! Wonderful makeover or something great is going on. Love that bed of tulips with Topaz in the center. I notice that many have moved on to beautiful, creative mosaics. I'm stuck in three years ago and nearly forgot how to do that! =D

  18. What a joy to visit you again and see so many familiar blogs and friends! We've been without internet for the last two weeks and before that, somewhere after sailing from India and heading to the Middle East Live Writer refused to post to Blogger and PicMonkey refused to work for anywhere. I've wanted to join in the fun, just can't do mosaics right now. Maybe in July after we get back to the U.S. or I'll post some that I did prior to leaving home! Good to be back though and able to read your updates -- I love Topaz!

  20. Good Morning Judith! I am back after a (too long) hiatus! Topaz looks all tuckered out . You found lots of "spring treasures " to photograph on your walk. Who had more fun, you or Topaz?

  22. What a nice area to walk. I'm like you and let the dog off leash whenever I can. Sometimes a dog just needs to run! Love the last shot of Topaz in the tulips ;)

  24. Dogs need a lot of exercise and it's nice you have such a pretty a place nearby to walk Topaz and let him run off leash once in a while, JUdith! He looks very sweet lying in his "bed of tulips"! :)

  36. How cute!

    Today, I saw the Titam Arum (aka Corpse Flower). We were informed that the blooming plant closed up overnight so we couldn't smell the putrid odour...

  37. I am trying to get out every day walking in the morning, but it doesn't always work. But I can see how having a dog would make one do it! I always take my little camera with me - there is always something I want to photograph. Have a great week and thankyou for hosting. I am off for my walk now. cheers

  38. Judith, The lake is a lovely place to visit and let Topaz run. I enjoyed seeing some of the lovely plants too. Topaz on a bed of tulips is pretty! Good photoshopping!
    Hugs, Beth

  39. Topaz looks so content and comfortable in that bed. Your park is beautiful and peaceful. Have a nice week Judith.

  40. Adore the name Topaz for a little dog. What a gorgeous presentation of Topaz framed in flowers. So lovely.

  41. I haven't seen anything like the picture of Topaz in the flowers before, that is a great app isn't it. Hope that the comments thing gets sorted for you, it is annoying when things like that happens isn't it. I don't suppose that anyone will mind though! xx

  42. Sweet Topaz had quite a day. And you had me fooled with your mosaic of him sleeping in a field of tulips. Loved it. Aren't these modern phones fun with cameras? I use mine a lot of the time. I think mine is 8 pixels. It has more than my first digital camera. Thanks for hosting Mosaic Monday. I am quite enjoying it.

  43. Your dog looks so contented after having a fun run out by the lake. And it looks like a beautiful place to hang out, with gorgeous flowers.

  45. I really appreciate your leaving a comment on my blog, since I know it is a different format from most everybody else. And thank you for hosting of course as always. That is a lovely park and Topaz looks very sweet and gentle, especially in that tulip bed ))). I do have to admit to being one of those unfortunate people who is afraid of off leash dogs though.

  46. What a beautiful place to take the dog. Topaz is adorable!

  47. I still love and like and look at your blog.
    My interests changed to scrap actually.
    It became, because I liked the little graphics and the total face of your blog so much. so I was directed from fotografy to scrap. It is a mixture at my blogs.
    I will come to you again some day.
    Unforgotten Greetings from Pippa
