Mosaic Monday




Share with me a few stolen quiet moments from late Sunday afternoon in our backyard to help Mary at Little Red House celebrate Mosaic Monday. (Double click on the pic for a larger version).

Schedules are still filled with soccer games, end of year pool parties, and studying for final exams. But soon, here's where you'll find me...poolside, contemplating the flowers in the garden, grabbing a siesta under the cabana and reading the New York Times or The Soloist by Steve Lopez (highly recommended!).

Should I scoot over and offer you an iced Earl Grey tea?

I can't have caffeine, you wouldn't happen to have any raspberry or Lemon Zinger?

You must have a beautiful garden, everything looks so colorful.

Mary said...

Oh yes, Tara, I would LOVE an iced tea! You have such a lovely back yard -- perfect for a lazy day with the New York Times! Thanks for joining the fun at Mosaic Monday. :)

What a beautiful backyard!!! We spend all day today in our backyard as well. I love your Gazebo, I've seen one like it at Target that I love.
I hope you don't mind me asking some questions. Do you like yours? Is it holding up well and do you have any issues when it's windy?
Have a wonderful Monday,
Tam

Beautiful collage Tara :)
oh, when I was in Kapas, there was a hammock, so I was on it under the tree most of the time...thinking of you too and wondering why I dont have one in my home...happy week/hugs/M

Kathleen said...

Looks lovely, Tara..
Hey, I thought you proclaimed summer had arrived here. It must be stuck on the LIE, cause it is chilly, and 4 more days of rain.
I did enjoy today though. Got the porch all cleaned and set up. I always have to wait till after the pollen invasion subsides or else it is a futile task!

Gorgeous mosaic. So bright and cheerful.
Now about that iced tea - it is Winter here so pop on over and make that a hot tea!! Thanks..LOL
