Mosaic Monday: Flower Favorites

Welcome to another Mosaic Monday. I'm cheating a little here -- letting Big Huge Labs create a mosaic automatically from my set of flower favorites on flickr. Two reasons for this:

1. it's pouring rain here -- very heavy thunderstorms -- and I need to see some pretty flowers
2. it's pouring rain here and my fingers are still achy, so the less I type, the better.

So please forgive me if I do not leave a comment on your mosaic this week. I will definitely visit you all, but I just can't type that much. :(

Now 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) I can't wait to see your mosaics! Here is Mr. Linky:


  1. {{{HUGS}}} to you Mary. I hope your fingers get to feeling better. I did enjoy your beautiful mosaic of your flower photos. Just gorgeous.


  2. Oh wow! These are great!

    Sorry about your fingers.

  3. What beautiful flowers, Mary! I especially love those pink coneflowers and may try those in my garden next year! I hope your fingers feel better soon! Happy week!...Debbie

  4. A stunning parade of flowers! The mosaic is huge!

    Do hope your fingers heal soon!

  5. gorgeous shots - we finally had some rain this weekend. I'm glad

  6. Lovely as a flower Mary! I love the various angles you used to photo the flowers. I hope your fingers heal quickly.

  7. Great minds think alike hehe. We've been having lots of rain so I dipped into my archives from earlier this summer to post some flowers. Hope your fingers feel better soon and you see some sunny skies.

  8. Hi Mary, automatic or not, you have such a lovely collection of photogrpahs. Take care, and I would like to send my sunshine over to the East.

  9. Beautiful indeed! Sorry about the fingers not wanting to cooperate! Hang in there!

  10. WOW! Such beauty! hope you are feeling better soon! :)

  11. beautiful blossoms

    bet they smell good too

    Hugs and blessings,

  12. Send some of the rain to me...we are so dry. I am sorry you are having trouble with your fingers and I sure hope they are better soon. Your flower favorites are breath taking in beauty. I love all the pinks that made your favorites list.

    Take care!

  13. Oh, Mary. I've missed yet another one! Why can't I remember? Please don't think that I don't love you anymore . . .

  14. Hello Mary! Boy what weird weather we are all having. I'm sorry your fingers are giving you discomfort! No worries about visiting me. Hope you feel tip top soon!! Blessings...
    Love, love, love all the beautiful flowers in your mosaic...

  15. Sweet Mary! Thanks so much for linking me up.... We arrived here at the beach and have some Internet in the lobby, but I appreciate you going ahead and getting me linked up.

    YOUR mosaic is absolutely breathtaking! I love, love these beautiful flowers. Wish I had them all growing in my yard. (I wanted to say "garden," but I don't exactly have one of those!)

    I hope you're back at the keyboard soon without the pain.... Rest that hand!

  16. Beautiful flowers , prettier than the other..surely a picture to look at in January and February..Summer flies by!

  17. Beautiful mosaic, Mary! Thank you for hosting. I hope the sun shines soon and the pain goes away. I truly enjoy creating a mosaic each week. ~Kathy

  18. Hope you're feeling better and the sun starts to shine. We've had enough rain here, too. More than enough! Gorgeous mosaic! Those flowers are all so beautiful!

  19. Hi Mary,
    What beautiful photographs of some gorgeous flowers. I hope that your fingers feel better. I always feel the rain and dampness in my knee. Yet,my mom who once upon a time suffered with arthritis in her hands believes cod liver oil tablets help with the pain.

    Happy Mosaic Monday Mary. Thank you for hosting a wonderful way to start Monday.


  20. Hi Mary-- Its my first time with you and so excited.

    Mosaics are some of my favorites and yours really is gorgeous.

    Thanks for your time and generosity.

    TTFN~~ Claudia ♥

  21. Mary! Your flowers look good enough to eat so soft and sweet...
    Have a great week!

  22. Oh, Mary -- can you believe that rain on Sunday? I was ready to get out my cubit measuring stick and begin building the ark.

    I'm so sorry that you're having troubles with your fingers -- and it's so hard to "rest" them; they are the hardest working of all our various parts, I think. I've had some knee issues, but for that you can always put a leg up and grab a good book!

    You are of course "forgiven" for not commenting -- no one expects you to this week. Rest those poor digits! :-)

    PS And the flowers --gorgeous... but the roses are my faves. Love 'em, no good at all growing them!

  23. Beautiful mosaic.
    Can I link my post. A combination?

  24. Hello Mary...

    My friend, all of your floral photos are simply gorgeous...and when combined in the mosaic, all the beautiful colors remind of looking through a kaleidoscope! Soooo beautiful!!! Thank you so much for sharing all of your pretty flowers with us today and for hosting Mosaic Monday!

    I will say a prayer for you, my friend...sure hope that your hand and achy fingers feel better soon!

    Have a marvelous Monday!

  25. Lovely selection and colours. I can imagine a combination of them in a vase. Have a good week.

  28. Morning Mary, I understand achy fingers and hope you are typing away real soon.
    The flowers make me feel light and airy and it is going to be at least 100 in Texas today.
    Needed something to cool me down.

    Happy Monday, Barbara

  29. So beautiful. We had major rain yesterday! I'm headed off for a couple days of relaxing at the shore. I combined three memes this week!

  35. Oh, those flowers are luscious! Just the thing to cheer you up. Sorry your fingers are so achy. Hope the rain goes and you feel better soon.

  36. This was so much fun! I had no idea it was so easy.

  37. What a beautiful mosaic and pretty flowers! Would make a great picture for the wall or
    a calendar.

  38. Your flowers are wonderful. Great mosaic! Sorry to hear that you are having problems with your fingers. Hope they start feeling better. It is very dry in our part of MN. Send the rain our way, we will take it. Thanks for hosting.

  39. Hi Mary, I found my way to you through the mosaic monday posts. I love your mosaics but especiallly loved your post on Cape May. I lived near the "Jersey Shore" most of my life. Cape May was our vacation place and your pics brought back such wonderful memories! We used to stay at the "Cape e Scape" not sure if it's there anymore my daughter said she could not find it when she looked on the internet so it might have turned into a private residence. Since moving to the hills WV 20 years ago we now vacation at Hatteras Island in the Outer Banks. I do miss those beautiful Victorians and beautiful gift shops in Cape May! Thanks for stirring the memories, I might just have to plan a trip to Cape May! LOL We just went to LBI in NJ last month, there's some pics of it on my blog. Have your gone there?
    Have a great week,
    Bless you, Shirl
