Mosaic Monday: Connecticut Garden











First of all, I'm so sorry about missing last week's Mosaic Monday!  We had a wonderful, albeit internet-free, week of vacation at the Jersey shore.  :)

This week, I have some photos that I took way back in June, while on the Garden Conservancy's Open Days in Litchfield County, Connecticut. This particular garden consisted of a 1920's Georgian style brick house set in 50 acres of fields, perennial gardens and woodlands.  The small conservatory was beautiful, as well as the patio and covered pergola.  I loved the use of blue/purple flowers against the white-painted brick.  The last photo shows the gorgeous view out over the Litchfield hills.  A beautiful garden!

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.

  4. Beautiful photography, Mary, as always...it looks like a spread for Better Homes and Gardens. The Litchfield area is just beautiful...so lush and green. Wonderful flowers...I noticed the magnificent clematis and the patio with succulents on the table and baskets...a beautiful home.

  6. Hello Mary
    Your photos make this place look like it's right out of a magazine. A greenhouse to die for, and a patio area that I could certainly entertain in.
