Mosaic Monday: More Bunny







How are you all, dear bloggers? It's been a crazy hot week here in New Jersey, and even hotter in the midwest and south.  I hope everyone has been staying as cool as possible.  I have some more photos from designer Bunny Williams' garden this week.  Here is the vegetable garden, the greenhouse and the working barn.  I love the potting table in the greenhouse -- what a great work station!  And those cactuses?  Cacti?  Succulents?  Aren't they beautiful?  And now that I think of it, perhaps cactus is a fitting subject for this scorcher or a week...  :)

Here are the instructions to join today's post:
1. Publish your Mosaic Monday post. The post may be about any subject you wish. The only stipulation is that it include a collage, or mosaic of photos.
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 inlinkz box in this post.
4. Type your name in the appropriate inlinkz 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

And a quick reminder: if you would like to join Mosaic Monday but don't know quite where to start, there is a tutorial on mosaic-making on my sidebar. Just scroll down, and click on the small blue mosaic.

  3. Whatever those white balls are in with the cacti/succulents really look like little fluffy-bottomed chicks with their little feet sticking out...yellow flowers, I believe. I've not seen that variety before.

    I'm looking very closely to see what she's using as material on her paths through the garden...pea gravel perhaps and straw?

    Hope that it's cooler for you all by tomorrow. Perhaps you'll have a chance to turn of the AC as well.

  15. Mary,
    The Heat Is On...could be the theme song here on the Prairie! We could truly use some cooler temps combined with some rain. These gardens are lovely! Gives me hope that there is light at the end of this tunnel...
    Fondly,
    Pat

  16. Love this trip through Bunny's garden. I used to garden even as hot as it is now but no more. Got to young and spry for that. But I so loved it. Thanks for this relaxing tour.

  19. The vegetable garden is wonderful. I wish I had more room for vegetables. Laying out the structure of new beds this fall. The potting bench and greenhouse are to be envied.

  27. I just love, love, love everything you share from her house - it's so inspirational!!! and, it's so funny that, as Tom and I are talking about what we want to do around our home, I'm thinking secretly, "I want it just like Bunny Williams' home!" Big LOL!!! =D

    Mary, your style of photography creates beautifully atmospheric - wonderfully earthy - just gorgeous feelings to the scenes. It's a great match - her vignettes and your photogrpahy! ..... I'm thinking she ought to see these, somehow! I'm sure she'd appreciate it! =]

    but, her veg patch make my two little raised beds look like a 2 inch pot! (laughing again!) Who eats all of that, anyway? =P

    Mary, usually I keep my sound turned off because I'm on the computer while others are sleeping. Today, I had it turned up (as happens, sometimes) and heard the beginning strains of the song and realized.... I sang that song at a wedding on Saturday! Oh, heavens - how I made it through without bursting for joy or crying is beyond me but Tom said that the groom wept openly all the way through it. =/ THEY picked the song.... I just sang it! ;)

    Love to you and your family! Is everyone home for the summer? I still hope that you're having peaceful days (in spite of the heat and everything).... weather-wise, we've had beautiful day after beautiful day after beautiful day - barely breaking into the nineties - we need a horrible and rainy day very badly, though. Mary, I ran the well dry for the second time, this season! gack! =( But it is BEAUTIFUL! =] So - out to the garden I go!!!

    So, I was saying... love to all of you! =]

  35. That opening image with those round back chairs, how charming and yes, I like the little garden shed working table too. We have just completed 10 days with nine 3 digit temps, 2 tying records and the others were record breakers. This morning is delightful!!! Have a lovely week~
