Longing for Color!

I hope you enjoyed your weekend. We had some lovely sunny weather with a definite hint of spring in the air. A little walk around the garden reveled some signs of beauty to come. A few tulips,daffodils and peony tips are poking up. So, I am longing for color and I bet you are too. So, I am sharing some mosaics from photos of our garden last year.

Some roses in our garden

I love these moody blues!

Some lilacs in our garden last year- can't wait for their return!

Well, it is mosaic Monday at Mary's lovely Little Red House so I am joining in again. There are hundreds of lovely mosaics to check out so have fun!

Thank you for visiting,

Carolyn

Gorgeous mosaics, Carolyn. And I always mean to tell you that I love the singers from O Brother Where Art Thou? That was one of my all-time favorite movies and musical scores. Just played it in the car tonight, as a matter of fact. Take care, Carolyn. Sincerely, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

The geraniums, lupines, and lilacs remind me of home. You have a ton of gorgeous roses...I'm quite jealous.

Hello Carolyn,
so beautiful flowers! - I like to have too, but by us it has snow and is very cold, so no flowers come out.
I love these lilac flowers, they smell......:-)))

It's so hard to pick favorite flowers isn't it? Like a child asking a mother who do you love best? I love them all.

Your gardens are stunning. Your home beautiful. I could spend hours looking through your blog.

I have huge perennial gardens also and cannot wait for the arrival of blooms, bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.

I took my readers to the international Philadelphia Flower show via video. Turn your volume up and join me.

I can hardly wait for some colour too - only a few daffodil and tulips shoots - and a brave crocus or two so far :)

I really love lilacs and am looking forward to those. Usually they are in bloom at Easter, but they may be later this year.

Gorgeous collages. Those lupines are magnificent.

The lupines are spectacular, but the lilacs always are perfume for my soul. Thanks for these lovely mosaics.
