  1. You are right that the background has a lot to do with the overall vignette. Clever and totally awesome, this shows what you can made even when you have very little left in your garden. Stunning, stunning. Full, yet lots of space, too. I am ALWAYS amazed at what and how you make your mandalas.

  2. Wondered why my comment was awaiting moderation, then saw I typed my e-mail address wrong. Two L’s. As I’ve said so many times, I’m a great speller, but lousy typist.

  9. Happy Mandala Monday to you Patty,
    I think those little garlic flowers remind me of sprinkles of glitter, little catches of white that tease the eye. Have a beautiful day.
    Peace~

  19. Lovely manual and the onion crock looks very old. Is that a stone rabbit I can see in the background of the garlic flowers photo?

  20. The crock is the perfect backdrop for what you gathered from your beautiful garden. I like the flurry of white flowers.
    When he was a pup, my sister and BIL’s dog (I am “Auntie” to Kyle who is a westie) would always source the garlic bulbs even those buried well into the earth and he woudl want to munch on them, we always had to keep our eyes peeled for the mischief he got up to in the garden!

  22. oh my, I almost missed my mandala fix/ feast of flowers! What a simply vibrant color combo Patty. I don’t know how you do it and keep things in perfect order to get a photo. I wanted to try a few times but with a breeze blowing it’s just impossible. I’ll be happy to keep enjoying your special mandalas 🙂
