Mosaic Monday: Pink

It's been a cold and windy week here in New Jersey, and I've been spending some time photographing my supermarket flowers.  We had a lovely foggy, misty, slushy, snowy day, and I spent a few hours wandering my favorite park, Natirar.  I love taking pictures in the fog.  :)

I wanted to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers this week.  My husband's procedure went well. He is tired and in some pain, but on the mend.  So thank you again for your prayers!

I've got a mosaic celebrating pink this week.  I bought the cyclamens to photograph for a group I belong to on Facebook called Colors of 2013 with Eva Ricci Studio.  We photograph a different color each month. The group also posts on Flickr here.  You can find me here and here on Facebook.  I'd love to see you there.  :)

  1. Ahh, I love the pink next to the white. The cyclamen looks like a perfect winter subject. Glad to hear your husband is on the mend.
    Hope things warm up for you, Mary!

  2. Hi Mary, happy to hear your husband is on the mend. Keeping you both in my thoughts and prayers.
    Looks like you've had a very cold day. Thank goodness for supermarket flowers all winter long! Thanks for sharing your photos, very beautiful. Thanks for hosting.

  3. Gorgeous photos, Mary. I love that plate with the flowers, and the foggy park. Pamela

  4. Really lovely photos. Have a nice week.

  5. Mary, I am new to your blog but haven't joined the party yet. But as soon as I read Natirar, I had to comment. That place is fabulous. I have taken cooking classes there sponsored by Viking. I won a prize from Peroni Beer several years ago. The restaurant is so fabulous, they smoke and cure their own bacon and grow much of the produce they serve at the restaurant. Thanks for sharing your lovely photos. xo

  6. Pink and pretty! Actually more than pretty -- just a beautiful mosaic.

    And as always thank you for hosting.

    PS: If anyone reads this and knows Leanne from New Zealand (she's next to me on the linkys here) she has a bad link to her blog -- it comes back to this page.

  7. Hello Mary
    I like the saucer of stems and blooms. A foggy day does offer mysterious looking photos.

  8. So glad your husband is on the mend Mary. Thank you for hosting!

  9. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! I love this SO much, Mary!!! bbbbbbb..... just spent the entire afternoon working on this kind of thing and there YOU go - it looks so effortless and sweet and... Mary.... your images are so refreshing - as always!!! =] They just make me happy! I'm sure that you know what I mean!

    Well! I may wish that I'd taken this but it doesn't make me want to give up - just makes me want to get out my camera again - right now! =P You're so good for me. But it's a good thing the battery is dead! I'm pooped! (and I only have about ten minutes of light left anyway! ;) )

    Oh, Mary! I just went back up and, actually, read your post.... I missed that your husband was in the hospital this week! Well, I'll add some fresh winds to the prayers!

    and, I'm just so grateful for you! You have no idea how many times looking at your images lifts my heart and sets me straight and keeps me going!

    Love to you all! =]


  10. Mary, I am so happy to hear your husband is recovery well. I will keep him in my prayers. I love your pretty pink mosaic. The snowy foggy scene is beautiful. The flowers on both the plate and from the store look lovely. Thanks for hosting, have a happy week ahead!

  11. Pink is a good color for this week! It's Pink Shirt Day this Wednesday to stand up for bullying! I love the juxtaposition of the bright spring flower and the blustery cold landscape...

  12. It's good to hear your husband is on the mend Mary.

    Your mosaic is beautiful!

  13. Glad your Dear hubby is on the mend ~ Lovely and elegant mosaic and thanks for hosting ~ ^_^ Carol

  14. so sorry to hear that your husband has not been well Mary. I wish him a speedy recovery. It is such a worry when one's partner is in hospital.
    I love the pink on your beautiful pink plate. Is that Geraldton Wax flower I see. If so, then it comes from Western Australia!
    There is nothing like a few hours wondering with a camera to soothe and calm the soul, whatever the weather.
    Take care, and thank you again for hosting Mosaic Monday.

  15. Glad to hear your husband is at home and recovering well. It takes time.
