Flowers and Sky for Mosaic Monday





Okay, so she's not really a flower, but her name is Lily, and in my eyes she could not have bloomed any more beautiful.

Summer is slipping away all to quickly here in New Hampshire. We've gone from temps in the upper 80's and lower 90's dropping down to the upper 60's and low 70's! It's a bit of a shock to the system! Not to mention we have inches of rain headed our way for tomorrow. We need rain, but not inches of it. I guess you just take what you get and deal with it.

I hope your Sunday was a good one!

What do you mean Lily is not a real flower. Bark, Lily! Bark loud! :)


Lovely flowers in your mosaics!

Lily is wonderful! What an exquisite sky. Looks as if you and I are sharing the same weather forecast for tomorrow. The gray previews sure wreaked havoc with my photos today.

NH and NY have been experiencing similar weather patterns... although where I live (Long Island), it's about 10 degrees warmer and MUCH more humid! I cannot wait till autumn arrives ♥

Nice photos. I'm a Lily too. :-) I like the green beetle on the echinacea - such a pretty iridescent green!

Great mosaics ... showing some terrific flowers, including Lily, and that beautiful sky!

LOVE that photo of sweet Lily! Hey, send some of those temps our way Sharon!

Eve said...

I love Lily no matter what!!! Send some rain our way Sharon! I think we've not had 2 inches all summer! Have a great day!!

Susan said...

Good Morning, Sharon,

I love your photos. What beautiful skies and flowers... and the photos of the butterfly and Japanese beetle is beautiful too, but I have to admit, my favorite photos is of Lily. She's adorable. What a great shot.

I hope you don't get too much rain for your area today. You could send it our way, though, we need it pretty badly. Actually, it looks like it may be getting here now. ;-)

I hope you have a very lovely day,
Susan

Lily is INDEED a flower no matter how you look at it... She's just so gorgeous and such a happy face!

I'm envious of your temperatures although ours have come down a wee bit... just not enough to satisfy my need for fall.

I know.. I'm rushing things.

Sharon said...

Absolutely a beautiful Mosaic. I love your Lily flower too. I have a Teddy flower and he is precious too. I think Fall is coming early to the Cascade foothills. Chilly nights already. Too soon.
