Christmas mandalas

I’ve completed some Christmas mandalas...just for fun. For the Jacobean Lily mandala I used photos of my flowering Jacobean lily…red and green and Christmassy. The Crystal Christmas lights mandala is based on my photos of crystals and skies. Both have special “light” backgrounds to reflect the mood of the season. Hope you enjoy them! Purchase them at

A celebratory flowering

Had to put up these glorious images….these bulbs haven’t flowered for years! They seem to be celebrating my daughter’s recovery after surgery, and a long-term illness….hopefully beginning a new and improved life. She had ulcerative colitis for 6 years, and despite the best medications and care, lost her colon in a 3 hour operation, in September.
