Mosaic Monday: Pretty in Pink

Welcome to  Mosaic Monday!  I was so excited to have company this week that I think I may have overdone it with the pink.  LOL  But no matter, it's always fun to make a mosaic in your favorite color or, in this case, with my favorite subject.   :)

The Garden Conservancy held an Open Day in our area on Saturday, and I was able to visit three beautiful gardens.  No, these flowers are not from those gardens.  But I promise to show you some photos from two of the gardens later this week.

In the meantime, let's have some mosaic fun!  If you are participating in Mosaic Monday, 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."
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)  I can't wait to see your mosaics!  Here is Mr. Linky:


  1. Oh Mary! Your mosaic is calling out to me. Love it! The flowers are all so fabulous!

  2. Mary,
    your pink mosaic is just stunning!!!
    Ilove the 'softness' of all of the floral shots and the inviting canter image.
    Have a great Monday,

  3. I'm going to have to figure out how to do this so I can add one! And that pink is delightful!

  4. Mary,
    Another gorgeous mosaic from you! This was fun, thanks for hosting!

  5. Mary, love your mosaics! Just gorgeous! Pink is a favorite color of mine and boy oh boy do I love how you displayed it!!

    Seriously, your mosiac is stunning. Thanks for hosting.

  11. Hi Mary. I visit your blog every day and have commented a couple of times. I admire your photography and your mosaics, and I'm thrilled that you're hosting a Mosaic Monday party! I've added my link to Mr. Linky. Thank you, and Happy Mosaic Monday to you! ~Arleen

  12. It's more like Beautiful in Pink! My Peonies should be blooming this week and I can hardly wait! Right now all I can smell is the Lilacs I picked today. They are with us such a short time.

  15. Hi Mary, beautiful display! This is a great idea for a party. I might have to try it out one time soon.

  16. You have the eye of an artist when you create your mosaics. They just flow beautifully.

    Are you familiar with the blog Muddy Boot Dreams? She has the most beautiful photographs and art cards. I think you would appreciate her talent as well.

  17. Mary, I just discovered your blog, thanks to Tam, and was absolutely delighted! Your photos are gorgeous and your posts are a pleasure to read. Thank you for the inspiration.

    I've created a mosaic - aren't they just too much fun to create - and I've linked my post on Mr Linky.

    Thank you! ☺♥☺ Diane
