Are you Craving Color?

Happy Mosaic Monday! Soon it will be the time of year that I start to crave color and I will enjoy looking through my garden photos to dream of the weeks(months) ahead.

So I made some mosaics to share with you.

Looking out my window now ,it is amazing to think of the changes that take place in a matter of weeks once winter is over.

However,for now I am content to enjoy the white sparkling snow and the beautiful sunshine we are having today but soon I will be longing for all these colorful blooms of the spring and summer garden to return- what about you?

Today I am once again joining in on Mosaic Monday at Little Red House where there are lots of beautiful mosaics to see.

Enjoy your day!

Please, remember those in Haiti and here in Canada the government will match your donation dollar for dollar.

Yes, all of my color is brown now after the crazy cold weather we had last week in Florida!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos!

Gorgeous colors! Fabulous mosaics!

Your mosaics help to satisfy my cravings for spring, too. I even found myself peaking in a flowerbed this weekend, hoping to see a tiny sprout popping up, since it has been very warm for January, but of course, it is way too early. I look forward to more "spring" photos from your garden.

I am craving color and your mosaics really helped! Beautiful flowers! I've been thinking about my garden so much lately but it's still going to be a while here.

Cindy said...

Lovely color, Carolyn, we have a long time til we see it in our garden. But that is the wonderful thing about where we live, we have the opportunity to enjoy all four distinct seasons. I love that! When I lived on the West Coast, Vancouver area, we missed out on some of that.

Seeing your mosaics brightened my day. I long for Spring too since it has been so cold here in our area. I am anxious to get back in my garden and am tired of all the brown.

Oh, I can't wait to see your garden. I never looked at a single decorating blog till I made my first week of posts on Dec. 2009. I know when I see your gardens bloom in spring I will be amazed. It is exciting to anticipate the coming of some of these lovely blogs' gardens.

Shelia said...

I've missed you and it's so good to be back. Thank you for coming to see me while I was away!
Keep warm.
Be a sweetie,

Just gorgeous. What lovely color! Our snow has all been rained away or melted. But that's OK, we all need a little down time.
