  6. Another beautiful creation. The color of the clematis is stunning. Of course, my eye is drawn to the interesting fabric below the mandala. Is it a tablecloth? The delicacy really complements the beauty of the flowers.

  9. Thank you for beginning my week with this beautiful post and your lovely photos. The rosebuds are stunning! Hope you and yours are okay; and have escaped the violent spring storms. We had a very anxious week with severe storms, terribly oppressive heat, with tornadoes. Fortunately, I am ok as is my family. But; my heart goes out to those in Oklahoma.

    With your beautiful Monday post, we are now experiencing cooler temps. with sunshine! xxoo Marilyn

  11. Beautiful new Mandala, dearest Patty,- those Rosa Rugosa, are such a lovely rose, but will first apear here in late june… I have sometimes made a string with them to hang in the window… they looks beautiful ,also when dried!! I once got one from a very dear friend-(not longer among us) and have ever since thought about her, when seing the busches filled with them, in summer!
    With the blue clematis it is a stunning Mandala!
