We got 12 inches of snow at the end of October. It piled up on everything, to include the branches outside my window. When I took the picture there was no blue sky. Then I remembered my neighbor’s blue truck was parked beyond the branches, thus the blue color in the mandala!
Got a tuber for this plant in the spring – it grew lots and lots of vine and one flower. Only need one to take a picture and this in the mandala that resulted. Am overwintering the tuber and hope it will produce more flowers next year! This mandala is in a square-ish format that I liked (squares formed inside the circle). Enjoy!
Blown away with the wind – the milkweed seeds; actually had a monarch stop by my small growth of milkweed when they were blooming, it was beautiful! We had a huge cold front blow in last night. It finally started snowing this morning; the cold is supposed to remain around for 3 days. No more summer! Did get all the houseplants safely stored inside out of harm’s way.
Was going thru a box of old pictures and thought I could post an old mandala that I really liked. Original picture was of shadows on a short stairway taken one time when we were down in Sedona, AZ. Making it into a kaleidoscope was just the ticket to make this image pop. Someone at an auction bought the original last year, so the pattern must have appealed to at least one other person. Hard to believe it is already October.
