Mosaic Monday - In The Garden

For this weeks' Mosaic Monday I thought I would show some
blooms and foliage from my garden.


 
The Double Bloodroot is in full flower and I have one small purple Iris in bloom, which I was very happy to find.  The Magnolia 'Susan' is almost in full bloom. 

For some reason my daffodils are slow to bloom, but the tulips are going gangbusters, go figure. The pansies have been showing their happy faces for weeks.  

To enjoy other wonderful mosaic join our host Mary at Little Red House

Lovely mosaic. You look like a very talented gardener. Saw you on a friends blog and was intriqued with the title of your blog so I came to visit.

Beautiful flowers in your mosaic this week!! I especially like that purple pansey. I love how you were able to capture the droplets of water on them. I've not been out after a rain to try doing that. Perhaps tomorrow, as it is pouring here right now!!!

I forgot to mention that I read another of Kate Morton's books, The House at Riverton & reviewed it for Food for Thought a few months ago. I like her style of writing & will seek out your suggestion of The Forgotten Garden. Thank you!

You are so right - pansies do have happy faces! I never have much luck with the larger varieties, but the smaller violas and johnny jump ups grow well here and reseed consistently.

Thanks for your comments and confirmation on my iris's. I love your mosaic too. Such pretty flowers. I love how you also have your quilts mixed in w/the flowers in your header mosaic. They seem to compliment each other so well!

Beautiful! Is the bloodroot the one in the center on the bottom? That looks very interesting! We went to a tulip festival this weekend and the colors! Spring is such a wonderful time of year. Have a great week!

Lovely mosaic - I grow Magnolia Susan too but my buds are still tightly closed.

What a beautifully done mosaic, although I'm consumed with envy and coveting your double bloodroot so, soooo much. It's one of those plants I just haven't acquired yet. I wish they bloomed for longer, though.
