Mosaic on Monday


Today I want to joint Sara at 'My wooden Garden' in Eastern Finland for 'Mosaic on Monday' . I've made a photo mosaic of plants I love in my vernal garden.




Crocus of bright white, yellow, blue, striped - they grow all over the garden.
I have some Chionodoxa, they are so nice, I call them 'blue stars' for their blue petals and white centers. 
I love all bulbs, especially hyacinths. I grow blue, pink, yellow and the first  are white ones. Their fragrance is feeling over the garden.
Pushkinia and scylla always flower in the same time, I planted them in mixborder near a patio, in a very sunny spot. 
There are many primulas in my garden. Some of them bloom in early April, I think because it's warm in their spot near a juniper.  Snowflakes grow between rhododendrons in shady corner. I call them yellow spot bells. There is a 'snowflake field' in my neighbor's garden :)) 

Although I get much information on Internet but one book is always at hand, it is 'The Pocket Flower Expert' by D.G. Hessayon, It's a gift on my birthday in January.


If someone of you loves this idea of 'Mosaic on Monday' join Sara and me!
Have a nice week!

  1. Lovely springflower mosaic Nadezda!
    Yes all information is to find on internet nowadays, but I'm fond of books about gardens and gardening. Nothing beats a good gardening book.
    Wish you a nice week in the garden.

  6. Hello there Nadezda girl !
    You put together a gorgeous mosaic : ) .. we are having good soaking rainfall today and it should fill the rain barrel up so I can keep the raised beed well watered with all my hellebore in it.
    YES ! ... the race is racing ... I had three days of help from hubby and we worked hard and long but that is the way it goes each garden year just to get ready for the plants to explode ! haha
    Love all your bulbs !
    Take care
    Joy : )

    1. Yes, I do. This is GIMP 2.6 image editor program, I like it and think it's not difficult. You can learn this program on YouTube.

  11. Hello Nadezda, I read your comment on the Mosaic Monday blog party that I host, do you know how to link to a blog party? In your own post you create a link back to my blog (Lavender Cottage) to say you are participating in Mosaic Monday and then click on the link tool at the bottom and follow the instructions. Your link URL must be of the mosaic post only, not your blog URL and once you do this, your photo will show and others can visit you.
    If you have any problem, email me from my blog and we'll set you set up to join properly.
    My friend Sara at My Woodland Garden is a participant also.

  17. Also, I love the photo you have at the top of your blog. Pussy willows (not sure if you call them something different) are one of my absolute favorite plants! I just gathered a "bouquet" of them for my bedroom.
