‘To op their trunks the trees are never seen. How then do they put on their coats of green? They leave them out, they leave them out!’ this is a song I learned long years ago and at the end a hand gesture of opening. Ready for Spring!
It’s great for the skiers but hard on the folks who have to shovel the sidewalks! After a while the piles are too high to stack any more, fortunately in the Denver area it does melt a bit. But more is expected Monday night! This mandala is snowy branches with ornament like images forming between the bigger branches.
When I saw how the pie-pieces of the image fit together in this image from the Blossoms of Light display at DBG – it looked like there were candles on the ends of the star that formed in the middle. The curve beyond the center is the edge of Denver Botanic Gardens conservatory building barely lit up. It is always a magical time to wander through the lit up trees at the Gardens. Happy New Year Everyone! Thanks for coming to look at my mandala.
