Birch Tree Mandala

 

While walking on a dirt road I noticed these white trees standing out among the usual green and brown of pitch pine.  These beautiful birch trees were a nice surprise.

Birch trees are symbols of growth, adaptability and renewal.  They can be one of the first trees to grow in cleared or burned forests.

Red Bellied Turtle Mandala

Today I took at walk at “turtle cove” and got the pleasure of seeing a few turtles basking in the sun.

I am always filled with joy when I see them.  I just love the vibrant orange on their undersides.  And I am fascinated by them in general – such a prehistoric looking creature!

The one in this mandala is a Red Bellied Turtle.  They are the ones I notice most often here.

I’ve read up a little about turtle lore…they are symbols of patience, longevity and wisdom.

These guys can live to be over 50 years old!  They can grow to close to 16″ in length.  The shell on this one was at least 12″.

Spring Splendor Mandala

SPRING is here!  Actually it is a little beyond spring and half-way to summer…BUT… it seems like the bursts of beautiful color have just started!  I really think our seasons are a bit behind this year – thanks to the never-ending winter we had (not complainin’- just sayin’.)

To me, this evokes the burst-burst-burst of color popping out.  And the glow of yellow sunshine warming everything against a backdrop of lively green.

This was created from an original flower photo that I took at Whitesbog Village,NJ.  I went there in early May to see what was in bloom.  This is one of the beautiful flowers I saw.  I don’t know what it is called.  Some type of flowering fern?  Are there such things?

Here is the original that I started with.  I really had NO idea it would turn out looking like it does in the mandala.
