Mosaic Monday: Missing the Deck



Despite my recorded joy in snow days, I have to say that I'm really starting to miss dining on the deck. :)

These photos are from last summer -- a little luncheon table to celebrate the warm weather. I keep telling myself that the days are getting just a little longer and a little warmer as each week passes. Before I know it, I'll be filling the pots on my deck.

Right?

RIGHT?

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:

  2. Hi Mary,
    I'm right with you - I also can't wait for Spring, spending time on the patio and digging in the dirt.
    Thank you for sharing this lovely Mosaic to remind us warmer days are just around the corner.
    Hugs,
    Tam

  7. Hi Mary,
    it is 12:30 Lunch time Monday for me. I have just posted my MM.
    Just love your deck images, I am inspired for when our temps drop a little lower.
    Our winter is very mild and a deck or balcony is much loved then.
    My laptop died so I am been missing for a few weeks...

  23. Beautiful mosaic Mary! The colours are truly gorgeous.

    Today in Brisbane Australia the temperature is 33 degrees Celsius (about 91 Fahrenheit) and 61% humidity...I hope the rain that has been predicted for this afternoon cools things down a bit! I will send you some sunshine if you could please send me some cooler weather!

    Thanks for having me today and best wishes for a great week,
    Natasha.

  45. Green is my favorite color, so I really love this mosaic. Here the birds are singing loud every morning and to me that is the first sign that spring is on its way!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Right! The days ARE getting longer. :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. The green and white is soooo pretty and soothing! I'm wishing for spring too; I'm dying for some blue skies and some green! I'm sick of the grey, white and brown of winter! :-)

  52. Hi Mary,
    I missed out on a couple of weeks of the Mosaic Monday fun. Glad to be back. I'm just so jealous of all your beautiful photography. Every picture is so crisp & bright. Not to mention your fabulous decorating skills. Something to aspire to!

    Happy Monday, Mary!

  53. What absolutely stunning shades of green and white!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Beautiful pictures!

    I understand completely. You are in good company.

    Almost every day, I search desperately for signs of warmer weather ahead...little blades of green grass, budding trees, flowers springing forth...something...anything! I need warmth! LOL

  55. Hi Mary,
    I'm still trying to master this mosaic thing!
    Your mosaic made me really yearn for those sweet days of summer and how wonderful it is to eat al fresco!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Yes, I understand missing eating outside. The snow has been pretty but, the cold gets old pretty fast. Of course our Texas summers/heat do too. Guess we just can't be happy. Thanks for letting me play along today. It was my first Mosaic Monday. Charlene

  57. I know what you mean! I miss seeing grass, green or brown at this point:) Lovely images as always, hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day! Happy MM!

  58. Hi Mary - Thank you for being such a wonderful hostess. Today I'm making it my mission to visit every site (though there were a couple I didn't leave a comment on. . . I had some trouble with the one in Hungarian and the Swedish ones, but I loved the photos). Only about 5 to go.

  61. Guess we have the same longings for nice warm summer evenings. Just put out a post about almost the same thing.

    Wanted to aks you though how do you enlarge your mosaic this way? I never get it right. And when I do it's all blurry?? Any help would be wonderful if you can find a spare moment. thanks.

  62. Seeing your summer deck with all that green is making me miss mine too.

    ReplyDelete
