Hello and welcome to MANDALA MONDAY! I decided to share a little bit of my yard showing where I've been getting all the nature greenery and such for my mandalas. We have a long ditch that runs along the side and front and back yard. Our property is an acre and half so that's a long ditch. We've found many cool things in there and 14 years later the ditch is overfilled with weeds of all kinds and a few trees. Lucky for me it also has a few flowers/wildflowers or whatever you call them mixed in here too. I walked around the other night with Rich and we found some new things and I thought I'd share them with you before showing you my mandala for today.
here is what it looks like behind the garden, I rarely go back that far but Rich does and this time I did too. We are hoping to have apple trees to fill in this space one day.
I LOVE LOVE this pop of purple
I love these thicker strips, they don't wilt as fast and nice to see
not sure what they are but pretty pop of orange, this was way in the back yard
look how cute!! don't know what they are but so cute
click on this one to see better, might turn into something or just look cool as it is
just something about these that I like
another favorite, SOOOO CUTE!!
Here is my mandala for today!! This was inspired by a new dear blog friend Elizabeth, who just started making mandalas too. Her first one was made on a charger plate which made it look so pretty. Well while making dinner this night I looked down at the plate of muffins left and an this mandala idea came to me. I used the spinach and carrots from the dinner I was making and love the results. I didn't realize till uploading that a carrot is missing at the top, it rolled and is hiding beside the muffin but you can't see it, haha! Thanks so much Elizabeth for the inspiration and I think one day these yummy Morning Glory Muffins will be part of your Tuesday blog hop.
Thanks Dawn for inspiring me to start making mandalas with you, it adds a new joy in my days now. To see Dawn's mandala and others please visit http://girlunwinding.wordpress.com

Here is one last picture of something pretty awesome in our garden right now....
