Mosaic Monday # 42 - deliciously floral

Since I'm still busily trying to catch up on jobs around the house (we have an artisan here working at present renovating and painting), an overgrown garden and sundry other minor chores which have accumulated whilst we've been in Crete, I needed a quick and easy post for this week's Mosaic Monday.

As I was looking through our holiday pictures yesterday I came across some which I think certainly fit the "a picture is worth a thousand words" category.

I hope you'll agree.


  1. Good Morning sweet Maggie,
    and thank you for hosting your so wonderful link-up party !
    And let me say that your Monday post is always so great, gorgeous, stunning, thank you for this too, as well !

    Wishing you a lovely week to come
    I'm sending hugs and love to you

  2. Well, I certainly know what you have in store since I was gone for over a year! My best advice: pace yourself!

    Beautiful mosaics of your magical escape to the Med!

    Thanks for hosting and wishing you a wonderful week!


  3. What beautiful mosaics! I especially love that lily. It's always hard to catch up with a garden that continues to grow while you're on holiday. Looking forward to more photos. I think there was an old Poirot episode that had him visiting Crete. It seems so exotic. Have a wonderful week, Maggie, and thank you for hosting MM.

  4. I totally agree Maggie - these gorgeous flowers speak their own beautiful language. Try to cope with everything after your holiday!

  5. Beautiful Mosaics... beautiful flowers .... and yes no words are needed ... we all speak the same language when it comes to these beauties. Thank you so much for hosting.

  6. A great selection of flowers, beautifully combined, Maggie! I hope you enjoyed Crete (my birthplace :-)
    Thanks for hosting.

  7. Beautiful shots, Maggie.
    Have a cup of virtual coffee at my place!

  8. Wow! Gorgeous color. Definitely worth a thousand words! Happy Monday!

  9. Beautiful flowers Maggie. Thank you for your 42nd Mosaic Monday, always appreciated Maggie.

  10. Flowers make the most beautiful mosaic. The creamy white rose is spectacular! I hope things go well this week! Happy MM! Hugs, Diane

  11. Dearest Maggie; Gorgeous and Beautiful flowers with Collage (Mosaic) ♡♡♡ Yes, "Deliciously Floral". I believe your garden will be wonderfully renovated♪
    So sorry for my absence, I was busy for my old aunt and uncle. And Thank you SO much for your sweet comments. I wish you will have a wonderful new week.

  12. Lovely flowers, and the collages look well put together.

  13. Yay! I made it back for two out of two weeks, thank you Maggie for your lovely welcome back last week! I'm here for a breath of fresh air and to fill my lungs with the scent of your summer flowers, absolutely beautiful :)

  14. I know what it is like to be strapped for time, but these are lovely spring blooms. Enjoy spring!

  15. Your flowers are so fabulous! Love them!


  16. Beautiful flowers and so great pictures. I'm glad I found your blog.
    Thank you for visiting me. I'll be back

    ♥ greetings

  17. I always enjoy your vacation posts. Crete is a place that I only studied as part of studies of the Greek classics as an English literature major. So for me it is so far away and an exotic place. I'd love to visit, so I am glad that you have posted photos. There is always catching up to do when you get home, isn't there? Gorgeous flowers.

  18. Simply beautiful flowers, Maggie. Crete looks like a place where colour flourishes!
    Here it is already Wednesday evening and I'm just getting around to reading the MM posts. Thank you for hosting once again.

  19. Never a need to apologize for quick post ideas, I am about as late as they come, but I finally arrive. Your posies are all so beautiful. The colours very reminiscent of the choices I use in my little garden spaces. It has been such a busy time and sometimes I have to take a very deep breath, sigh and move forward. My husband thinks something is wrong and I say, no that felt wonderful! Have a sweet weekend and stay safe my friend. Thanking you for everything~


Thanks for stopping by, your visit just made my day!
