Waterlilies are coming to the end of their summer bloom, as is this series of Celtic crosses. They were fun to do. This Celtic cross has the reflection of a waterlily, the darker lily is the reflection and the brownish colored lily pads make up the rest of the design.
You really have to look closely to see the mantis as he became part of the design element of the Celtic cross. You have to look closely when they are in your garden as well – they are so still, they blend in with the foliage. He was a fun summer discovery!
