Blue Monday and Mosaic Monday

First of all I want to say it is give-away time because of my three years of blogging. At the bottom of this post I will tell more.
Now , as some of you may know we were in England these last two weeks for our holidays . What a beautiful country it is. I made more than a thousand photo’s so  there is a lot to show in the next weeks. We visited  the most beautiful gardens, houses and palaces .  I am going to have to sort it all out first and then take  one day at a time.
For blue Monday  hosted by Sally of Smiling Sally I have these photo’s . I love this clear blue in flowers. Just gorgeous.
I just read Sally is in hospital. Get better soon Sally!
Please click on photo's to enlarge!




For Mosaic Monday ,hosted by Mary of The little red House, I just took some photo’s of our first day and made a mosaic out of it.

Hoi Riet, fijn dat jullie weer heelhuids terug zijn en zo'n prachtige reis gemaakt hebben. Na het zien van je foto's verhoog ik me op de rest die gaan komen.
lieve groetjes

Hallo Riet ,
Je gaat met je muis naar de afbeelding , klikt rechts en sla dan de foto op in een mapje .
Sla ook de naam van het blog op en ga dan naar je dashbord voor nieuwe pagina elementen toe te voegen .
Pak dan een gadget en ga naar een afbeelding plaatsen .
Dan haal je de foto en de titel van het blog op .
De rest zie je dan vanzelf wel .
Vergeet nooit om het dan op te slaan anders moet je opnieuw beginnen .
Uitleggen is niet mijn sterkste kant maar ik hoop je zo toch geholpen te hebben .
Anders hoor ik dat wel weer .
Liefs ♥RINI♥

Riet said...

Wat een schitterende foto,s heb je gemaakt Riet.

Het is nu bar en boos vind je niet?

Liefs Riet.x

I'd love to see an English garden - but as long as that's only a dream I'll be satisfied with beautiful images like yours.

I can't believe I had not signed up as a follower but I did not find my avatar. I am there now. I would love to be included in your giveaway. I have been so busy make the plarn items for the summer charity picnic I have not visited much. I love the mosaic and the blue flowers today. Always so beautiful on your blog.

Beautiful flowers...I especially liked the batchelor buttons...I haven't seen them in years.

Vee said...

Mosaics lend themselves perfectly to vacation photographs. How else to share so many photos so beautifully? I enjoyed seeing the flowers and photos of your vacation very much.

Congrats on three years of blogging!
