Mandala Monday: Yellow Roses

a sweet bouquet of Trader Joe’s roses jumped into my shopping cart the other day…

Trader Joe's Yellow Roses

they stayed fresh and pretty for a nice long while…

roses past bloom

when the petals started to fall I wasn’t quite ready to let them go…

Yellow Rose Mandala

using a favorite enamel plate turned upside down and a butter pat plate for the center I had some mandala fun…

  7. Amazing your flower mandala, I love it. This is a way you can keep the flowers yet for a while. I love roses and dry the petals to make a tea of it or to make a flower potpourri with other dried flowers. I like the beautiful butterfly on one of your photos, why don’t you put him on your Mandala, he has the same colours and would so look nice on it?

  10. such a gorgeous bouquet of sunshine-and I love the mandala with the butterfly!

  11. Oh, it is beautiful, my dear. The colours are wonderful and your idea of laying the stamens and the bottoms of the flowers around the plate looks fantastic!! Ofcourse you could not just throw the petals, -they will be so lovely when dried, too.
