Mosaic Monday - borrowed nature

(click image to enlarge)

I've been house-sitting for weeks and I'm not done yet! So I'm borrowing nature from the homeowners to use in my mosaic. They have lovely maple trees absolutely covered in maple keys. Vines growing up the porch railings, a wonderful view of the sunset, lots of pots of succulents and a flowering artichoke that I just discovered hiding behind some other plants (that's the purple at the top). Really some lovely finds!

Be sure to visit Little Red House to see all the beautiful mosaics!
