Mosaic Monday: Looking Back









Since it's been ungodly hot here in New Jersey these past few weeks, I've decided to take a look back at spring, with some images from nearby Willowwood Arboretum that I never got around to sharing with you.  When I shot these, I was so happy that the weather was warming up, and some flowers were beginning to appear.  Now, it's been in the 80's and 90's for two weeks straight, and I'm dreaming of sweaters...  :)


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.

  1. Beautiful spring blossoms, Mary! It has been hot and humid lately. I would like to loose the humidity and I would be happy. Lovely photos and mosaics. Have a happy week, thanks for hosting.

  6. They are beautiful pictures, Mary. You are the best with the bokeh effect. Some day I'm going to try harder to be like you! I hear you. I'm totally miserable with the heat and humidity. Why is it that we get so few perfect days? Ha!

  7. There's just something about old wood and Spring flowers that makes a beautiful photo. We've had a beautiful Spring and Summer here in Florida! We expect some heat and have humidity year round. Enjoy your afternoon!

  8. Mary, you are dreaming of sweaters, and I am dreaming of sunshine. My pastor even kidded during his morning intro that it was beginning to feel like we lived in a rain forest, we have had so much rain. One thing good, no draught this year! Your images are fantastic and I really like the little red shed used in a couple of the photos. Happy week~

  9. I am so excited that I finally taken some time and learned how to do a collage/mosaic on the computer! I am joining for the first, but definitely, not the last time. Looking forward to visiting the other party participants. Thanks for hosting. Your flowers are beautiful.

  11. Oh yes those 80's in temps can't be beat. Great images, looks like a wonderful place to visit.
    We have had non stop rain this weekend so our 90's have been damped and what a relief.
    Stay cool and thanks for hosting the party.

  12. Love your spring image collages. I noticed that my collages don't have dividing lines in most of my pictures. I guess it was the black on black backgrounds that appealed when I was making them.

    Thanks for hosting, hope you have somewhere cool for relief from the heat.

  13. Sure enjoyed your spring collages. I have been fortunate this past couple of weeks to work on my yard and gardens. A real pleasure. Thanks for hosting.

  14. I like your mosaics with two photos. It was an inspiration for me. Last month I published a post about teacher´s gifts with mosaics with only two pictures. I´m following your blog a time ago.

  15. gorgeous images, I went "oh!" when I opened your post - so beautiful. What is that flower in the first images, so beautiful. Amazing isn't it how we long for the summer, but when it gets here, we are not happy if it is too hot! Have a wonderful week and thankyou for hosting Mosaic MondaY again for us. A beautiful way to start the week.

  16. Sorry about your heat and humidity. I can empathize only because of my hot flashes which are my humidity these days! Beautiful flashback to Spring! Blessings...

  21. Your photos are of cool loveliness, Mary. I hope they helped you feel a little bit refreshed.

  22. I agree, the weather here has been in record high temperatures, best to sty indoors and reflect about Spring. Your photographs are gorgeous as ever. I went to a nursery today and went home without any flowers for the garden. Every plant and flower looked as parched as I was. Have a lovely week Mary.

  25. I have to say our weather here in Colorado has been very nice so far this summer. It may get to 90 now and then, but the humidity is so low it doesn't feel so hot. Loved your delicate mosaics!

    ReplyDelete
  26. The green woods of spring look so cool! We don't have the hot weather here that you have in the east, but we're into our hot and dry season now, nonetheless. Pretty mosaics!

  27. Marvelous photos of the springtime flowers. So beautiful !

  28. So very pretty. It hasn't been too bad here, of course it is all relative. We have only had one day in the triple digits. This week we will stay in the nineties. Last year we stayed above 100 for several weeks. As I said, it is all relative. Stay cool and safe.

  29. The look of Spring is very refreshing! We're having hot weather here but the worst part is the high humidity. Since we in Minnesota wait all winter for this weather I still try to enjoy a bit of it every day. Thanks for the refreshing mosaic!

  31. Your floral photos are just outstanding.

    Sorry it's been so hot- here too and soooooo much RAIN!

    I love rain but even I am sick of it - have a small lake on the side of our house, getting me a little worried lately.

    Have a wonderful week - thanks for hosting!
