Mosaic Monday: Cross Gardens, Part II










Please forgive me for posting some photos and running, but my right hand is still giving me trouble, and I find that I can't really type too long before it starts to ache.  So here are some more photos from the Cross Estate Gardens, near my home in New Jersey.  Enjoy!

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.net

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.

  1. What amazing color and I see a beautiful redbud tree. They bloomed early here in the mountains and we missed seeing them! Enjoy your week!

  3. It looks like a beautiful sea of forget-me-nots in these photos; the pinks, lavenders and blues are beautiful. I hope your hand is feeling better soon, Mary. Thank you for posting "Mosaic Monday" in spite of it.(Ouch.)

  4. Goodness, that's beautiful! I am crazy about the blue and yellow combination!I planted some For-get-me-not seeds last fall, but I think I might have to let them grow for a year before I get a bloom. Maybe I'll have it next year!

  16. Oh I'm sorry that your wrist is not feeling so great. I find myself wearing my wrist support a lot lately...not too much fun...hope that it's feeling much better as you give it rest.

    Now on to fun things...how wonderful to see a garden so much in spring bloom. It's beautiful and your photography and mosaics present it in a wonderful light.

  17. Mary what a gorgeous garden. Your photographs make it look so enchanting. I do hope that your hand gets better. My mom turned me onto Cod Liver Oil tablets. They are just vitamin supplements, but they really do work. Her hands were so arthritic that she had so much pain. Until she started taking those supplements.

    Well, wishing you a beautiful evening.

    I have been having right arm pain when using the computer and I can completely sympathize with you in needing to limit computer time unfortunately:(

  36. These are incredibly gorgeous, Mary. I had to read back to see what was up with your hand. Mine had begun to do some weird things lately but the darn knee encompassed all of that.

  37. What gorgeous gardens and the colors are just my favorites...aaahhh heaven :) Hope your hand is better soon. I recently had tendon release surgery on my left hand and will probably have the same on the right before my deductible resets in January.
