Mosaic Monday: Almost Spring



I love the tiny blossoms of early spring. Oh yes, I know that according to the calendar, spring hasn't officially started yet. But trust me, it's here. :) We had a wonderfully mild winter this year (thank you, global warming) and this past week has seen the last snowdrops, more crocus and hellebores, and some pretty, tiny weeds growing up in our lawn. As for weeds in the lawn, we are definitely a "live and let live" kind of household. :) Anyway, here are a few of the tiny blossoms around our Little Red House. Happy almost-Spring, dear bloggers!

Here are the instructions to join today's post:
1. Publish your Mosaic Monday post. The post may be about any subject you wish. The only stipulation is that it include a collage, or mosaic of photos.
2. Once it is published, click on the title of the post. This will lead you to the static link for your post. The static link is the page with only that post on it. Copy the url from your browser at the top of the page.
3. Paste the url into the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
4. Type your name in the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
5. Click on "Enter."
6. Please link back to this Mosaic Monday post so that your readers can find other wonderful mosaics.
That's all there is to it! It's always a good idea to then check and see if your link is working. If you have any questions, feel free to email me: mrcarroll(at)optonline

And a quick reminder: if you would like to join Mosaic Monday but don't know quite where to start, there is a tutorial on mosaic-making on my sidebar. Just scroll down, and click on the small blue mosaic.

  16. Happy spring to you too! I love the little delicate blooms of early spring.
    For us I in the Midwest, I think we've gone straight to summer and everything is in full bloom now. It's so pretty but fleeting at the same time....

  33. Hi Mary, I love your Spring flowers. I can't believe how warm it is here in Massachusetts too. I think your flowers are blooming earlier than ours though.

    Wishing you a lovely day.

  37. I am so pleased to discover your blog - your photos are a true delight. I am a 'wannabe' photographer and I'm certainly not up to the standard of most of your participants, BUT I love making mosaics - they are so much fun and I just love visiting all the beautiful blogs here. Thank you!

  38. I can't say that I've seen any flowers here yet but after the next few very warm days I expect blooms to be popping up everywhere! How I long for Hellebores in my garden. Lucky you, Mary. Spring is but a few days away!

  39. Lovely spring posies Mary. I am like you, I cannot go about chasing down the weeds on our 2 acres. I may pull something, if it is right in front of me, and yet, so many of what we call weeds, are lovely too, and so short lived. Have a Happy~
