Mosaic Monday: Autumn Hues



For some strange reason, I don't have many pumpkin pictures in my archives. I was all set to do a Halloween mosaic when I found a decided lack of winter squash on the hard drive. lol

So, I thought a ramble through some autumn landscapes might do the trick. :) What do you love about autumn? For me, it is the golden hues all around -- from the drying grasses in the fields to the touch of orange in the evening sky. Hope you enjoy my autumn hues.


Now let's have some mosaic fun! Here are the instructions:

  1. Publish your Mosaic Monday post.
  2. Once it is published, click on the title of the post. This will lead you to the static link for your post. The static link is the page with only that post on it. Copy the url from your browser at the top of the page.
  3. Paste the url into the appropriate Mr. Linky box in this post.
  4. Type your name in the appropriate Mr. Linky box in this post.
  5. Click on "Enter."
  6. Please link back to this Mosaic Monday post so that your readers can find other wonderful mosaics.
That's all there is to it! It's always a good idea to then check and see if your link is working. If you have any questions, feel free to email me: mrcarroll(at)optonline.net. I can't wait to see your mosaics! Here is Mr. Linky:

  1. Oh, Mary! How lovely! These are photos from around where you live? Living on the Texas Gulf Coast we don't really have seasons. I do love fall, it does cool down a bit - 76' today! But I jus crank down the AC and pretend it's a chill from outdoors. :)
    I'm so excited to be the first to link! woo hooness.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  14. Mary I have a question. I see that you went to Minima Stretch and I want to do that. Here is my confusion. My header will not center. No matter how I do it. And I don't like it off center. I see yours looks good. How did you do that????

  15. I love the misty pictures and great music.

  16. Mary,
    I love your autumn pictures. I had already linked to Mr. Linky when I realized you wanted Autumn Hues. I know my Indian Blue Peacocks aren't autumny colors, but I visited them in Autumn at an Oktoberfest pumpkin patch...does that qualify?

    Thanks for hosting and next time I'll see if there's a theme before I link up.

  28. Hello Mary! Wow, your photographs are as stunning as usual. They put me in mind of great landscape paintings by Dutch masters! Thank you for hosting another Mosaic Monday. It's been fun to travel through the seasons with you. ~Arleen

  29. Such a calm, serene mosiac, Mary! That's what I love so much about late fall - nature has a sense that it's time to slow down and rest for a season. Although our society is always in OVER-DRIVE nature is there is calm our spirits and say, "Hey, wait a minute - there is a time a season for everything!" We would be wise to listen. Shhhh, can you hear?!

  36. The mosaic oozes Autumn warmth. The colours are magic. Unfortunately we don't have deciduous trees in sub tropical Brisbane. We look forward to Autumn because it means cooler weather after a hot summer.

  56. Hi, I've never seen your blog before and I'm not sure how I got here this time. I've taken a look around the Little Red House and it's beautiful! You are definitely a talented photographer. Makes me think (again) that I should take a class or two. I love your Monday Mosaics. Evidently a lot of people do too. Thanks for the lovely visit.

  58. I'm loving the whole thing...and especially your whiteish pumpkins...and the softness in your fall colors is like snuggling up in grandma's patchwork - which is, well, just pure love.
