Once in a while, I use the Celtic cross feature in my kaleidoscope program. So here starts a series of crosses – this one is a flower of agastache or as one garden store called it “hummingbird mint”, wonderful subtle colors.
OK, one more variation on the grasshopper. I liked the distinctive black and yellow on his mid body, more of his wings are in this picture – they are translucent so don’t show up much. I liked the two overlapping squares in the middle and the patterns on the legs.
After watching the Olympics last night I should have saved the hibiscus mandala for the opening explosion of color. However, the Stargazer Lily is strong in the color department too. My lilies have come and gone. I always wish the flowers would have lasted longer!
