Hello Tatzyana,Wow what a lovely colores you are showing today. A short introduction to what this flower season is going to bring us.Have a lovely weekendMarijke
Marijke, thank you and yes, we need those colors!
I love your collages. Very artistically done! Now you have inspired me to give collages a try. It would be a great way to document the garden's progress through the year. Thank you for posting those beautiful photos!
Dorothy, thanks! Donna inspired me, it's a great idea.
Beautiful! Thank you for sharing! I think we all need a reminder that our gardens will be blooming once again...at least I did! :) Happy Saturday! Heather
Dear Heather, please, include a link to your blog in your profile! I lost the link and can't find your blog. I've been trying to find it for a long time... Click on your name and you'll see that people can't go back to you...
A great year you had in your lovely garden in 2011.
Thank you Hermes!
Wow! Did you hear me slobbering all over your posting. LOL! What a wonderful year of blooms. From the pretty primroses, anemones and roses to the plants on your window sill. I needed at spot of color today.
Thank you Lona! I want to jump into June or August!
Thank you , Meg!
You were right...a great idea! It really does give us a chance to view your garden for the entire year, and it is beautiful! Well done!
Thank you SB! I love your icicle pictures!
Beautiful shots of your garden!
I am glad you liked it, Carolyn!
Beautiful. I love how the garden wakes up from its winter sleep. Loved the collage. Oh, how I miss seeing summer's blooms!
Summer will be here in no time! Can you believe, the winter is almost gone?
Amazing!I love your pictures <3 I love your plants <3 I love your garden <3.Thank you for sharing this beauty.
Thank you Tiina!
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.
Randy, my anemone start showing their green tops!
Oh my goodness! These are lovely! When I think of all the time you put into creating these mosaics, never mind the work and joy in your beautiful garden, I am just astounded! Thanks for sharing!Thank you for visiting The Gardening LIfe and your comment about the plant like (tulip like) fossil that was recently discovered. It's amazing how much it resembles a tulip!
Thank you, Shirley, I enjoyed visiting your blog!
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.
It is fun. I spend a lot of time doing that, I love to work with photographs.
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.
Donna, I loved what you've done!
What a neat idea and so very well done... absolutely beautiful scenes from your beautiful gardens... very much enjoyed by me, and I'm sure, by a great many others! Larry
Thank you Larry! Your garden is an inspiration for me!
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. A year in Tatyana's Garden.
Thank you Susie! My favorites are June and August.
What a marvelous year you had!I took time to savor each photo - so very refreshing!LeaLea's Menagerie
Thank you Lea!
Great retrospective of your 2011 garden. The photos are beautiful!
Hi GS! It was not easy to select pics for January and February, but other months had hundreds of pictures.
Oh, it's so beautiful, I can hardly breathe! I want to Be In This Place!!! What loveliness you have created! Sorry, Rambling! I'm beside myself over these photos! Thank you!
Liesl, you have such a big space for your garden! I am jealous!

Darla, it's your Florida garden that is gorgeous year around! Our winter is not so beautiful...
Tatyana, I am not usually a fan of the collages, however this is absolutely charming.
Thank you, Alistair! You are not? I love them!
Tatyana, Lovely post! Your month by month mosaics are beautiful!
NHGarden, I'm glad you enjoyed them!
How lovely Tatyana! But how fleeting a year becomes!! Oneday I will do something similar with my garden pics. Thanks for sharing. Jack
Jack, thank you and do it, it'll be stunning, I know!
Lovely photos of your beautiful gardens!
Every time I think of a Fatsia I think of yours and the great photos you have shared. Love it just budding. Great year in review.
Thank you Janet! Fatsia is a Queen of my garden!
Your garden is stunning Tatyana, and those collages are a great idea in showing how ones garden look like in a 'nutshell' :)
Mark and Gaz, thank you!
It's so beautiful all year long, you have much to be proud of you. You should make a calendar out of these! Hey Tatyana, when you get a chance, will you make a note of my new blog address? My old one has been deleted due to someone else's fraud, grrrrrr! http://lifeinrobinsnest.blogspot.com/
I always enjoy your posts, Tatyana, and this tour of your garden through 2011 is a treat!
OMG!You garden is so beautiful!!!
Beautiful collages, Tatyana! It looks like 2011 was a banner year in your garden. May 2012 be just as beautiful for you.
Spectacular display of your garden throughout the year!!!
