It was only in the high 80s tonight, so I worked on my mandala outside. I let some of my greens go to seed (oops) so I decided to use some of them for my mandala. My lily is full of blooms that are all about a day away from wilting, so I was willing to pick one of them, too. I took a few stones from my rock garden and here you have it:
When I was done, I just tossed the salad into my yard. I’m not sure what the dogs thought about it (I think it was too bitter even for them). Next time I mow it will just get mulched up with the clippings. The circle of life.
My two favorite Mandala bloggers both had beautiful offerings this week. They almost make me look forward to Mondays (almost).
http://girlunwinding.wordpress.com/2013/07/15/mandala-mondayhoneycomb-mandala/ – I love Dawn’s detail and precision. I could really get lost in her mandalas (which is, I guess, the point).
http://bitze.wordpress.com/2013/07/15/mandala-monday-make-mine-a-double/ – Patty’s mandalas are much more soft and pretty. I also love the way she uses linens and china in the staging.
