Mosaic Monday

Hello everyone,

I hope you enjoyed a lovely weekend. Now with the start of a new week, I thought I would share some of the many photos I have taken lately in mosaics so I could squeeze more in.

The photos above were taken recently on our drive to Victoria by the Sea. The lighthouse had some of the prettiest lupins that I have ever seen. They were grown from seed -they are Russel hybrids.

These are closeups of some of the flowers that are blooming right now in our garden.

I love these photos so much I wanted to share a different perspective of them.

These are more flowers blooming now in our garden. It is such a beautiful time of the year and I have lots more photos to share with you this week.

Today, I am joining Mary at the Little Red House for mosaic Monday where there are lots of beautiful mosaic's for you to enjoy.

Thank you for visiting me,

Carolyn

You live in a piece of heaven there. My mother has visited Prince Edward Island and said it was glorious.

Must be your soil, lupins don't seem to want to grow with the same abandon here that they do in your province.
Lots of colourful flowers in your garden right now.

My friend Karen sent me the link to your blog. She knew that I would love it. She knows me so well. I adore everything about it! I have added you to my sidebar so that I can visit from time to time. I have always wanted to visit Prince edward Island. Nova Scotia is the most fabulous place to visit. It's high time I went back.

Beautiful mosiacs Carolyn. I love lupins and I hear they are easy to grow but I never have been able to. It is nice to see them and appreciate their beauty.

Hi Carolyn,

Just a quick comment to say goodbye. We will be leaving shortly. I enjoyed the photo's you made of your grandcdaughters very much. They are very pretty girls. They look as if they don't mind being photographed at all!

Hi Carolyn love your mosaics. Lupins are such romantic flowers and I see you have a Empress Josephine clematis there mine has finnished flowering but the heat has been so bad these last few weeks the blooms were getting smaller and smaller.
I loved your little fairies that came to visit but didn't get chance to see the whole post.
