Mosaic Monday and blue Monday

Another week, another Monday. Time flies. Mosaic Monday is hosted by Mary of The little red house.
And again from me a flower mosaic. My summer was full of garden tours and I am sure you noticed.

Great Dixter3

All these photo´s I took in one of Englands most beautiful gardens Great Dixter.



For more mosaics go to Mary’s blog:

Blue Monday.
Blue Monday is hosted by Sally of Smiling Sally
I hope you are feeling better every day Sally.

For blue Monday I have this mosaic of Lavender fields I saw in a lovely little village in the Cotswolds. Miles of lavender fields in all different colors.
When I saw this it really took my breath away. Never seen anything like it. So beautiful.

Riet, your flowers and photos are gorgeous. You must have seen some beautiful garden on your tour. I love the lavender mosaic too. I wish I could be there to see the lavender field myself.

Hoi Riet,

Zo leuk om te zien dat Great Dixter er in de zomer weer heel anders uitziet dan toen ik er in het voorjaar ben geweest! Wat een geweldige tuin he?!

Leuk om te lezen dat jullie in Amsterdam hebben gewoond. Ik vind het leuk om er zaterdag meer over te horen!

Lieve groetjes van Madelief x

I never tire of garden shots. This year I have craved the hot colours - perhaps because it has been such a cool summer.

Great mosaics. I have never been to the lavender fields in the Cotswolds but have been to one or two locally. We also haven't visited Great Dixter , we tried recently but ran out of time. Hope to visit there in September when we are in Sussex visiting relatives for the day who have recently moved to an old house near there. Have a good week, Jackie in Surrey, UK.

Hello dear Riet,
As always, your mosaics are full of beautiful blooms. I enjoyed the lavender farm photos so much. I could even imagine the beautiful fragrance that had to be in the air there.

Thanks for visiting my blog.
Your team-mate from BW,
