A True Mosaic for Mosaic Monday!

I was delighted to see this mosaic wall at the Kanapaha Botanical Gardens!

My mind started spinning…

thinking of all the fun photos to share.

Of course then I got a ‘low battery’ on my camera.

But it was hubby to the rescue!

He had brought his little Nikon Coolpix P300 in his back pocket.

So I ‘traded with him’! teehee!

I just kept walking around to see what else I could see!

And I can’t wait to go back to see what I missed!

I absolutely love all your photos! I want to go there and see it for myself. So glad your husband was able to rescue you with his camera. I've started carrying an extra fully charged battery with me. Too many times this has happened to me.

Vee said...

What a cool wall! So much to see in it. Glad that your hubby shares your enthusiasm for photography!

Arlene Grimm said...

Those pesky cameras...should have an unlimited battery life to my way of thinking. So glad you had a backup to capture all those great photos.

Mildred said...

So glad your hubby came to the rescue - I love these photos. Enjoy your Monday. xoxo

Diane, I would love a little garden wall like that right here. I might even start thinking about that...or maybe just making something like it on my large planters. :):) You get to see so many wonderful sights. Blessings for a fun filled new week. xoxo, Susie

A mosaic of mosaics, what a great subject for MM. It looks and sounds like a fascinating place to visit, glad Mr Lavender was able to save the day!

Lois said...

What a wonderful place for photos! Glad you had your hubby's camera as a backup.

What a fun place to visit, Diane! I enjoyed the photos. I've had that battery experience too. My camera shows full battery, then after it shows 3/4 full, it's only a short time until it's completely flat! Have a wonderful Monday. xo

Well done Diane!

What a fun place and so much to take photos of!! Love it!! Happy Monday. I just got home from watching Miss Scout today, she is sick. I have babysitting duty again tomorrow.

Mary Cromer said...

How great that your hubby had a backup camera. I don't know what I would have done if a batter was dead when I needed it and no extra camera, just probably take a deep sigh and smile. This is my week to head to your beautiful state of Florida. I am so excited to spend time with my youngest daughter and her Matthew. Hugs to you~

Inger said...

What a lovely place! I wish I could visit it too, but it's a bit too far.

Rose said...

Oh, wow, what fun! I would love to go there and see what I could see, and see if I could spot all you photograghed.

Linda said...

Mosaic all the way! so interesting you want to look at them a little bit closer! Glad your hubby had your back! Sometimes Louis Dean says, "Don't you want to take a picture of this??" Always looking out for us!

Saw the yellow bird on my side bar, and had to come over and see. The Botanical Gardens is pretty, Diane. And I love that little gnome hehehe.

Enjoy the week!

You really did get a lot of pictures to show us of the mosaics. It is such an interesting place! There is almost too much to take in! Maybe you can get back there again some time. Thanks for sharing this.

That wall is so interesting . . . I'm sure that you could look at it all day and keep finding new things to make you smile :)

What a fun and unique mosaic wall! So glad your husband's camera was handy. I'm sure he didn't intend to take any photos at all. (teehee)

Thank goodness for a backup camera!

What a glorious place to visit - and to photograph. It is always handy to bring along someone with a little camera in their pocket. I love all the fun things - hope to see more next time you go back. What a happy place for a sweet friend.

What a beautiful wall! Remember Art Linkladder's show..."Kids Say the Darndest Things"? Well, I think you take the "darndest" pictures ever! I think there is beauty everywhere but you really seem to find more of it than most! You go girl! So grateful you share it with all of us!
