Seasons in our Garden








Good morning,

I hope you had a good weekend. It is a warm wet day here on the island.Posted by Picasa

I had a great time at the 70 mile yard sale on Saturday and I will show my treasures tomorrow .

Today I thought I would join in Mary's Mosaic Monday with seasons in our garden mosaics.I hope you enjoy these and other mosaics at the Little Red House.

Thank you for visiting me,

Carolyn

Hi Carolyn

That was a great idea to show the seasons. I think I prefer Summer here in the UK, which is your favourite season.

Looking forard to seeing your shopping from Saturday!!

I love peeking into your world... my gardens do battle against harsh conditions to flourish so it is so wonderful to see the beauty you are surrounded by...I just imagine myself transported back to the Island.

Your mosaics are a great way to revisit your yard at a glance. A 70 mile yard sale sounds like too much fun. Can't wait to see what you found.

Carolyn,

I so enjoyed your mosaics of each season. Even in the dead of winter it's beautiful.

In the autumn mosaic I am curious as to what the red bloom is in each of the photos. I know it could be different plants but they are beautiful. I clicked on to enlarge but I still couldn't tell what it was.

Looking forward to seeing your treasures tomorrow.

I've always wanted to live where there are four distinct seasons (I live in Southern California, which has a noticeable lack of seasonal change), and seeing your mosaics makes that longing ever stronger! What a lovely place to live. ::Jill

Love, Love, LOVE this mosaic of the seasons in your garden! You have the most amazing garden and to see it change through the seasons is just spectacular! It is equally beautiful in all season even under the snow thanks to all of your structures and forms. I might have to copy this idea next winter :)

Hi Carolyn,
The red shrub you were asking about is a Euonymus Alatus compacta or Burning Bush.They are green until fall and then they turn a beautiful red color for a few weeks before losing their leaves.
They are common here but I am not sure how they do in your southern climate.

Hi Carolyn,

I enjoyed looking at your pictures very much. This is the first time I see pictures of your house and garden in the snow. It looks very romantic. Must be beautiful around christmas time. I look forward to your finds of the flea market! Fijne avond! Lieve groet, Madelief

Nice idea for your mosaics! I love the autumn season best but I have to say your winter photos were wonderful!

Carolyn such lovely collages

Hi Carolyn,
What wonderful mosaics! {I still can't get the mosaic thingy to work for me. I'll have to wait for Jordan to come home to show me, I guess.} I love them all; the Autumn one is particularly pretty. I made your Sticky Date Pudding today; was it ever GOOD!! Even Hubby loved it and he's not big on date desserts. Can't wait to see the treasures you got at the Yard Sale!

Blessings,
Sandi

A wonderful mosaic, and of course your garden is lovely at any season.

I enlarged all three mosaics and what a treat! I'm envious of all the beauty surrounding you.
