Mosaic Monday: Walking through the neighborhood

Welcome to Mosaic Monday, hosted by Mary at Little Red House. This week's mosaic was created from pictures taken while I walked the dogs through the neighborhood. (I actually managed to remember the camera for once!) I've admired the daisies and lavender so much each time I walk past a house around the corner that I finally bought daisies and lavender for our backyard. Now I just need to plant them. ☺

Please visit our charming hostess Mary @ Little Red House
for the list of other participants.

Enjoy and have a great day!

Hi Diane,
Your mosaic is beautiful. You have a lovely neighborhood with fabulous flowers. . . looks like a special place to walk.

Your dogs must be very well trained to stay still while you took your great photos - Bentley has a hard time staying still long enough for me to shoot photos and walk him at the same time.
Have a wonderful holiday.

What a gorgeous neighborhood. I'm still waiting for the flowers☺ As warm as it gets in your area, how to the dogs do with the heat?

Diane, you MUST try the cake. It is delicious and so, so easy, too! It's perfect for summertime gatherings...or, heck, just sit down and eat it yourself!

Just beautiful, Diane! Great photos and a lovely neighborhood! Maybe I'd walk more often to see gardens like that! The kitties are not at all interested in walking, though!! lol Have a great week!...Debbie

lovely.your neighborhood must be gorgeous.
thank you for all the love and prayers sent my way.i felt them all.
yes Roo was helping dad take care of me.he would come to my door and crow until dad would finally let him in.
when he was a baby we trained him to sit on a pillow on our bed.he would watch football and take naps with dad.still takes naps almost everyday.of course the pillow has grown.
i sleep with a body pillow.he would get up on th top of my pillow ans i would wake up with mt arm around him.sitting their like an old dog.he has no idea what kind of animal he is.but,he would stay until dad removed him or i woke up.every time i even cough he makes this irratating sound like my mama hurts.and when i am coughing bad,he will get louder until he gets dads attention.i guess we should call him lassie,ha.
love ya...ann
