Mosaic Monday


I am joining in on Mary's Mosaic Monday again at Little Red House as I love making mosaics and viewing allthe others at Mary's lovely blog. The mosaic above are scenes around our garden that I took recently.

My bouquet mosaic


The little gardener's cottage(that would be mine) in our garden

The hollyhocks have just started to bloom in our garden-these hollyhocks are from seed that my Dad gave me years ago and they keep reseeding.They are a nice reminder of my Dad.


These photos can be enlarged if you wish by clicking on them.


Thank you for visiting me and now I am off to check out the wonderful mosac's over at Mary's Little Red House. See you there!

Hi Carolyn,
I always love to see your beautiful mosaics. I can always count on being wowed by their colors and textures. I love them all, but today I have to say that the hollyhocks are my favorites. Such a wonderful reminder of your father and the hues are stunning.
Smiles,
June

Amazing Mosaic Monday post as always. I dearly loved what you wrote about the hollyhocks coming from seeds originally that your Dad had given you. Oh how very special.

I have plants in my garden from my great grandmothers garden, my grandmothers and my mothers. I do know how cherished those plants are.

Thanks!

A lovely reminder of your dad! I have lily of the valley that were originally planted in Quebec by my great great grandmother - each time we move we bring a large container of them with us.

Great mosaics - I've enjoyed looking through them!

Your mosaics are beautiful!! Of course, that's because your flowers and your gardens and your home are beautiful :-)

I especially love the vignette of the chair with the birdhouse and white flowers the bouquet mosaic.

How wonderful that the hollyhocks are such a pretty reminder of your dad :-)
