This week's Jigidi theme is "Spring Is In The Air", so I made these kaleidoscopes from spring flowers.

The images I used to make these kaleidoscopes are freely available on the internet. I then use a variety of programs to make my kaleidoscopes, recolour the backgrounds and assemble them into a collage. Each collage takes around 2 hours to make.

It gives me immense pleasure making them, and I hope it gives you pleasure solving them. :-)

I really like how you see puzzles, Rosie. I love that you see optimism in this one, for a brighter future. Thanks so much for sharing your visions. And please NEVER feel obligated to solve. It should never be about work, just about joy. Take care.

I'm really behind on my puzzle solving and haven't been making comments but just had to stop and say that these are all exquisite and I am loathe to pick a favorite. They all touch one spot of happiness or another and I really need something after the snow and horrible cold temps we've been having and are to continue to have until the weekend.. Tomorrow is the first day of Spring and I don't believe it. Thanks for these beautiful reminders that it will come. Rosie

Thank you too, leet. I'm so pleased you had fun with this one. :)))

Oh, Barbara! Your comment has made my day. What a fantastic thing to say. Thanks so much. :)))))))))))))))))

The top left is my favorite. It seems to be in perfect balance. Thank you.

These are so beautiful, I think I have died and gone to heaven.

I knew what you meant Hester!! The "other" right. LOL

When I look at your profile image pinknblack, I never think of an old lady! How funny. I'm sure you must be exaggerating! And I'm glad these ones just scraped into your preferred colour range, and that you enjoyed them. :)))

RandomWorship

You're welcome Katie. I adore violets, and the colours of yours sound gorgeous! Maybe you could take a photo of them when they arrive, and post it as a puzzle! :)))

RandomWorship

None of us knew anything when we started out, Magda. You learn as you go. And we can see that you're learning! :)))

RandomWorship

Thanks shazzaannie! I hope this one brightened up your dull day. :)))

Thanks for the star Hester! Although I'm happy for the visit, with or without the calling card. :)))

Close enough to pink to make this old lady smile. These are beautiful!!!

This is an exquisite spring collection Kirsten! I'm impatiently waiting for the violets to bloom around my yard - I have purple, pink and white. Thanks for the preview!

Thank you Kirsten for your nice words. As I said somewher before, you were one of the first to encourage me, but I know nothing yet, but will keep trying.

feistyfreddy

Doh! That's Irish "right"...LOL

Gorgeous colours. Not much sign of spring here yet, although it is a little warmer today but still grey and damp.

Just popped another star up there, that makes it 6! These are nothing short of divine, Kirsten and it's well nigh impossible to pick a fave. Dithering.....umm... I think it must be those lovely anemones top right! :-))

RandomWorship

Thanks Magda!! And I would have agreed with you about the bottom left one, 'til I read what Ardy was in it on the 16 piecer. Want a laugh? Go and take a look for yourself. And it IS autumn here, but what can I do? I don't set the weekly themes. Maybe I'll do my own autumn one soon.

And I would love it if you came to visit. Please do! But I don't think you need lessons from me. You've made a start. I've seen your work. You're doing just fine on your own. :)))

oldiepumpkin

They are exceptionally lovely. The lower left one is almost bridal. But you must be having autumn now, if I am right. I have never been anywhere. I have decided, that in my next life (LOL) I will only travel---no husband or kids. Then I will visit you, to learn how to make puzzles! By that time you will not be working any more??? Thanks Kirsten, and please, do not take me serious!

RandomWorship

No worries Barb! Whack the other profile in your faves I reckon. That's what I've done! :)))

tigress

Ah, thanks for clearing that up, Kirsten. I saw the Sue1 profile and didn't realize she had others. I thought you put together your puzzle rather quickly. LOL Now I know. :-))

RandomWorship

Thanks Barb!! I'm so glad you enjoyed them. :)))

And I'm not sure if you know, but Sue has two profiles - sue1 and sue49. Actually I think she's got another one too, but I think it's the 1 and 49 profiles that she posts the weekly theme advices on. I think you may have seen the 1 profile puzzle, but she posted about the theme on the 49 profile a couple of days ago. Actually, with my limited puzzle-making time, I wish I could find out about it even earlier!! But I can manage (just!) on a few days notice, provided I have the week-end available too.

RandomWorship

Look at you Ardy! Ms Speedy! And that park sounds delightful! :)))

I'm suprised to hear that you could pick them for a vase, Edie. Whenever I've done that, they don't seem to last in the vase. Maybe you have an extra good type. But I'm a little like you. I like keeping my flowers in the garden. But I buy a lot of cut flowers for my home. Then again, I don't have any cats..................

tigress

Beautiful spring flowers and beautiful spring colours, Kirsten! Favourite is top left.
I kept checking Sue's site yesterday for the theme but didn't see it until a few minutes ago so I shall have to work on a spring puzzle for later today or tomorrow. :-)

Four stars on top now, Kirsten. Just had to have another taste of spring. These are so lovely. I have two lilacs in the back yard. When I taught in Rochester, New York I loved going to Highland Park which has over 500 variety of lilacs. It's a heavenly place in May. Thanks for again for these beauties.

It is nice outside but two years ago I cut a large bouquet and brought them into the house. It was so overpowering that they ended up relegated to my patio. LOL
I prefer to enjoy the flowers growing rather than cutting them, plus my cats like to sample anything I bring in so other than special event table decorations they will remain outside.

RandomWorship

I LOVE lilac Edie!! The fragrance is heavenly. Lucky you. What a wondrous thing it would be to walk around in the fog of that frgrance. Mmmmmmmm. :))))

RandomWorship

Oh, and I love a twinklin' board!!

RandomWorship

Thanks Gail!! My original vision wasn't a 2x2. I was going to do another freewheelin' one, but it just didn't look right. I'll need to hone my skills a bit more I think. So I pared down my 16 or so kaleidos down to this four. And I'm pretty happy with how it came out, although I really want to master the freewheelin' thing. I'm glad you like it though. :)))

I think I can smell them Kirsten. They are so lovely. I have a lot of white and mauve lilac bushes on the property and when they are in full bloom the air is saturated with the smell. I know that fall is in the air where you are but thanks sharing some spring blooms with us.

And three stars in a row on your board, Edie, Robbos and me.

This set is gorgeous, Kirsten. The flowers are so clear, yet so delicate. I like each one of the four equally. Great job!
