Mosaic Monday: Flower Power



Welcome to another Mosaic Monday!   We have had so much rain this spring that sometimes I've felt as if it was just another three months of cabin fever.  But the upside is that the flowers have been glorious.  Oh, how I love spring.  :)

So, let's have some mosaic fun!  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."
  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.  I can't wait to see your mosaics!  Here is Mr. Linky:

  1. Hi Mary. Oh my gosh, you've done it again. This mosaic is so stunning! Each week I think the one you post that day is my favorite and today is no exception. So beautiful, and agree with you: there is an upside to rain is these beautiful flowers. But we wouldn't be able to appreciate them if you hadn't captured them so skillfully. Thank you! And Happy Mosaic Monday to you. ~Arleen

  27. I just today found you from another blog (can't remember which one!) and would love to do mosaic monday with y'all, chickee! I'll start next monday the 15th. I've been wanting to do a mosaic and this is my change. Also, would love to exchange links with you. Just visit my page to see if you'd like to agree and we'll go from there, sugar! You're "gardens" are delightful. I hope to get this desert yard into shape this summer. Sigh...... That is if I can get hubs/Love Bunny to attend to it!

  48. Oh my ... this is a lovely Mosaic and a Marvelous Monday Meme I just learned about this morning when I visited Gemma's Greyscale Territory. I've signed your Mr. Linky with my Happily Retired Gal blog because yesterday' Mellow Yellow Monday post there is a Mosaic ... something I do frequently on each of my blogs. I'm off to edit the post to add your nifty Logo and will definitely participate in future weeks. I'm sure I'll enjoy visiting others who create mosaics too. It's very nice to find your beautiful blog!
    Hugs and blessings,
