Happy Birthday Mary on Mosaic Monday.

It's Mary's birthday and there is a party going on over @ the little red house on this Mosaic Monday.

Wishing you a wonderful day Mary, with flowers from Monet's garden at Giverny, formal palace gardens in Portugal and my own humble plot.


  1. Good morning Maggie. Beautiful flower mosaics you show us today. Are you in Portugal now? Hopefully the weather is better there. Over here it is grey again. Thank goodness we get to see a lot of flowers on all blogs.

  2. Morning Maggie

    A lot of beautiful flowers on the mosaics today to brighten us all up.January is nearly over thank goodness!! What a difference in Sunday's weather to the Sunday before when we were at Christchurch Quay and Hengistbury Head!!

    I would love to visit Monet's Garden. Do you visit it regularly or just when you have visitors?

    Most of the shrubs and bulbs in our garden seem to of survived all the snow we had.

    How often do you come back to the UK?


  3. Maggie,
    Beautiful flowers in your mosaics today. They are the perfect pop of color to get me moving this morning.

  4. Maggie as a lover of fleurs, this was so welcome this early Monday morning. Beautiful, your friend Mary has a real feast for the eyes!

  5. Oh Maggie, how beautiful!!! Thank you so much for brightening m day! :)

  6. Gorgeous - you'll have us all longing for summer and planning our plantings!
    I hope you received the email I sent to the email link on your page. I've had some trouble emailing to France lately and am never sure when my address will be 'blocked'.

  7. Love the color and Spring and Summer flowers can't come quick enough for me:)

  8. Yours is the second blog today with pictures of Monet's garden. Is there a new meme I don't know about?
    Bright, beautiful flowers made my day.
