August Mosaic






























And so the wheel of the seasons continues turning...

This month, I captured some iconic late summer images. As much as I know that school will soon be out when the Chickory starts to bloom in late May, I know that school will soon start when the Tall Purple Ironweed blooms.

I was weeding in the landlab when I came eye to eye with Mrs. Mantis, and when I stood up, Mr. Mantis was on the next weed over. I took it as a sign to stop weeding.

The skies are spectacularly blue and clear again after a few weeks of wretched humidity, the buckeyes are ready for the squirrels and the football fan necklace makers to gather (yes, Ohio State's mascot is a nut...literally), and a few leaves have tentatively tried on their fall colors.

But fall also brings newness to a teacher. Not pictured here are my 19 new students. Standing in for them are the puppies (no, not this year) and the baby.

Here are all my mosaics so far.

  1. Mary Lee,
    This is beautiful- both the words and the pictures. Makes get busy and start doing more with the camera (Yeah, I know the first thing would be to take a picture of me). Happy Tuesday!

  5. I am taken aback. What a neat idea and how you have made it so unique. I love mosaics. This is a great idea and I want to start this as a family project. I would also like to use this in my classroom. The kids would love it. I really enjoyed viewing your mosaics and you are an inspiration to others.
