Mosaic and Blue Monday.

 

For Mosaic Monday  hosted by Mary from The little red House  I made this mosaic of photo's I made today. We visited a beautiful garden in Rotterdam called "Schoonoord" that was open for hidden gardens day. In the next few days I will post more photo's of this garden.

Oh how lovely, Riet! Don't you just love to visit private gardens that are only opened once or twice a year? :)

Dear Riet, I am so glad I found you. Your link went off of my list. I have had that happen numerous times. I cannot remember the addies sometime so can't get them back until I run into them. I was showing your photos to my gd the other day and thinking about you. Love your mosaic. I spend half my days now waiting for the rain to stop so I can go take photographs. blessings

Morning Riet

Lovely mosaics. I love that these gardens are that are open on special days for the public to visit. Here in the UK we have the National Gardens Scheme, we have visited a few gardens already. The money going to charity.

Looking forward to see some more of your photographs from the garden.

Have a good week, Jackie in UK.

Fijne week,

Beautiful garden shots! Happy Blue Monday.

JEANNE said...

Hi Riet, I always enjoy your beautiful flower photos. These are so pretty. Of course, nothing makes me smile more than flowers. My mom loved them too. She always had live flowers in our home. She grew lots of zinnias in the summer to pick. This year I am trying to grow some too. I hope they are as pretty as my mom's. I just joined our local garden club and have really been enjoying the meetings. I learned I do NOT want to grow hybrid roses. They are way too much trouble. Smile. I am growing some knock out roses and even they have to be sprayed. They are disease resistant though. I am loving them. In Photoshop I will learn how to make a mosaic/collage.
It's about time. HA!

Happy days to you.
Hugs, Jeanne

I love the idea of visiting a hidden garden - and your mosaic gives us a peek at the hidden pleasures. I love that gunnera!
