Mosaic Monday: Sherbet Colors



I'm really inspired by color lately -- salmon and soft purple seem to be favorites here at the moment. So sunsets and quince blossoms and hyacinths make up my mosaic this week. They remind me of sherbet -- the kind I used to love as a kid -- where the color was almost as delicious as the sugary sweetness. :)

I'm hoping to get some spring cleaning done in the garden for the next few days. Our seventy-degree weather is supposed to continue into the middle of the week, and with all this rain and warm weather, things are growing by leaps and bounds. How wonderful is that after such a hard winter?!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We certainly did!



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. Great color combination. The cherry blossoms are so pretty. The sunset added charm in the mosaic.

    Happy Easter, Mary.

  3. Looks like you had a lovely sunset! I LOVE sunset watching and have about a million zillion photos on my computer of the same spot of land (complete with treetops) and my pink fluffy clouds. :)

    But now I am really craving a bowl of orange sherbet.

  5. Hello Mary
    The salmon and purple look very nice together. I'm always looking for new combinations with my lavender; I like the connection to sherbet too.
    Our Easter weekend was spent with family and a bit of gardening since it was so nice out.

  14. Your color combinations are delicious to look at!

    Isn't it wonderful to get out in the garden and get your hands dirty and your hamstrings sore from bending over to weed so much? Or is that just me?

  21. I have always been a Sherbert girl. Ice cream on rare occations... you are so right you colors are sensual.

    Im so excited by spring -- it teases us in Utah then snows. This morning we had another 6 inches then by noon it was cloudy but pretty much melted.

    Have a wonderful week!

  31. D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S! Sherbet shades are my most favorite & you've captured their essence beautifully, Mary.
    I'll be outside doing the same chores as you have planned. Glorious weather here in OH, FINALLY! All the spectacular flowers are the rewards we get for enduring those long, cold & dreary months of winter.
    Thanks for hosting the MM party each week. I'm really enjoying it & learning a great deal from each participant.

    fondly,
