Mosaic Monday

I thought today would be a good day to share some mosaics from summers past and present
Irises are a great way to start summer 
 Wild Celery is abundant along the road sides
 And Shirley Poppies are so sweet
 Fields of Allium waving in the breeze
 Wild Honeysuckle lines many banks along the roads
 Cattails by a small pond
 The wonderful scent of roses
 Foxgloves grow everywhere - along the roads, on hillsides, in fields
 Hollyhocks by a sweet seaside cottage
 Mullein is one of my favorite wild flowers
  I know these are not flowers  -  but I love this collage
 And of course no summer is complete without poppies
 Hydrangeas are in so many yards in town

 Rose gardens
 Summer flowers are grand!

What a great collection of flowers and beautiful photos. I like the pink poppies, the Alium and of course the hydrangeas (my theme for today's Monday, too).

Those are all really neat... but the poppies caught my eye the most. So bright and pretty. Love them all.

I've never heard of wild celery. I've learned a lot about identifying plants doing my ABC Wednesday posts, but haven't come across that one. Have a little time in town today so am trying to get caught up on my blogging friends. - Margy

Gorgeous flowers (and the odd cute chickens). Summer seems to come and go so fast it's hard to keep up with all the blossoms. These collages help remind us. So pretty!

A lovely way to look back over some beautiful memories! xx

A wonderful parade of flowers (with a few chickens) that would brighten anyone's day. I wish we had foxgloves grow wild here, they are a pretty flower and although mullein does, ours always looks so dirty and tattered when I see it along roadsides.
Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday JoAnn.

You've covered it all! - the beauty of a close up, in all it's delicate detail, and then the impact of an entire field of beauties. Some of the photos show such vivid all-over texture that I salivate over having them as quilting fabrics!

Margaret Adamson said...

Sharon Chapman said...
