My Garden-2011 in Pictures

Inspired by Donna and her wonderful creative year-end review, I adjusted my garden collages to depict my own garden month by month.

  10. Tatyana,
    Wow you did a fantastic job on these collages! I was stuck by the anemone you have in the April collage, it is blooming in our garden right now. Hope 2012 is equally as good for oyu or even better.

  12. Collages are fun to do aren't they? and you can get so much photographic information into one collage. I've just spent ages looking at each one. Beautiful done, Tatyana.

  13. These mosaics turned out beautifully, Tatyana. It is a very stunning garden and post display. Did you notice how many of the mosaics per month seems to follow a color scheme? It really is a nice way to see a year at a LONG glance. I mean long too, because you linger over each beautiful. individual image in each panel. I did like the pie and rabbit images, what a nice addition. What else is interesting is how gardens around the country differ when seen this way. On a monthly basis, it is not as noticeable.

  15. Your collages are beautiful. I have spent some time looking at each month trying to pick a favorite, but couldn't. Each month's collage is equally beautiful. I think they would be fantastic pictures for a calendar.
