Whidbey Island Doors :Mosaic Monday

My friend on Whidbey Island has the most
interesting garden. She has these marvelous
doors "planted" in her yard. I tried to get close ups
of the beautiful art work for you to see. I am sorry
but I do not know who the artist was.
As one drives around Whidbey Island you see  other
doors "planted" in fields, gardens and along roads.
The one plain door in the mosaic was in a field.
Now I have no idea how this got started, but I
love it!
Be sure to click on the mosaic for a close up!
Please drop by Mary's for more wonderful mosaics.
Thanks Mary for hosting this event!

Magical! I love when someone starts an idea like this. I can't for the life of me remember which blog it was, but someone posted a "Random Crafts" post with a picture of a handmade scarf tied to a sign post.

Just what the world needs - love and more art!

Have a Happy Monday,

How cool is that? Great idea -- I have an extra door in the garage -- wonder what I could put on it and where it would be best planted??!!!!!

How fun. I love all the different colors. What a neat mosaic thanks for sharing it and the story.
Thanks for visiting me today. I was having trouble with picaso and my husband always complains about it but I am figuring it out so I don't want to get rid of it. Each time I figure something out. Good luck.
Have a great day and come back and visiting anytime.

That looks really fun. I've seen plates planted in the garden, a surfboard, and other such things but never doors. What a great canvas. Ummm, makes me think.
