Around the Yard~Mosaic Monday

I missed last week's Mosaic Monday. Just found it today! Good grief. And I love Mosaic Mondays.

Nothing terribly inspiring this week, just a walk around the yard. I know that you'll be able to guess which two photos are my favorites.




1. He's doing the dishes! (I can not tell you how exciting it was to find that hubby was doing the dishes. Always a lovely peek inside to discover that.)

2. Purple wave petunias

3. Pink Columbine with Peony buds behind

4. Container Garden with Zinnia, herbs, and Lantana

5. Lavender phlox

6. Rhubarb

7. Crimson azalea

8.  Molly asking, "What'cha doin'?"

9. Deep purple columbine and one lonely iris. (So glad that they bloomed. I was pretty sure that I had some somewhere.)

10. Pink baby azalea

11. Decorative potato vine in my mother's old bike basket

Connecting to Mary's Little Red House. Hope that you have time to swing through and see some of the beautiful mosaics. It's always a treat.

  12. My hubby has taken up dish washing the past couple of years - never before. Now I'm trying to teach him how to grill :) He's a late bloomer!

    Speaking of blooms - love yours! Gorgeous.

  16. I'll bet Hubby doing the dishes is one of your favorite! I love the potato vine in the basket.
    Lovely mosaics.

  17. Hubby doing the dishes is a great shot. I also love the petunias, in fact, I have some of the very same ones, but they are not in full bloom yet because I bought small plants.

    I'm guessing those are your two favorite shots just because they are mine.

  18. I really like your pretty mosaic and that is a great shot through the window of John doing dishes. And I see your reflection down in the corner of the photo. Neat!

  19. I love the wave petunias! I love the walk around the yard. Fabulous idea. So many things are in bloom and looking wonderful. I love how many shades of purple are in your mosiac. I read once that heaven is full of colors we haven't seen, but don't you bet purple is big, too?

  26. My first thought....... How does any human, keep her windows so spotless, that she can wander around and just snap a pic, in some window?!?!

    It's not human!!!!!

    It's super-human, to maintain such windows!!!

    And it's totally not fair, to all we just-plain-humans out here! -pout-

    :-))))))))))

    Lovely mosaic. And if you love Mosaic Mon. so much, why not do mosaics every day? Yes, I know. Doing that, would make making mosaics, lose some of the fun. :-)

  27. I have missed a few MM's myself! It's been a busy end to spring and I hope to get back on track next week. I love the photo of the view of John through the window in your pretty mosaic, Vee!

  28. I'm singing 'one of these things is not like the other...' and smiling. But then again...hubby-doing-dishes fits in most perfectly with flowers in bloom!

  31. Very pretty flowers and photos! Thanks for identifying them ... that's so helpful for someone like me who doesn't really garden much, but loves to know the names of flowers. Have been catching up on some of your older posts. I am really enjoying your light, cheerful "voice"! Bess
