Peace on Earth - for December and always

This saying by Thomas Kempis (1379-1471) a German theologian, was in one of my many Christmas catalogs on a piece of jewelry. It seemed such an appropriate sentiment for this time of year, I thought I should incorporate it into a mandala. A greenhouse is a peaceful place for me, no matter what is growing. There is a wonderful smell of rich moist earth and the serenity of growing plants. An orchid greenhouse provided me with an opportunity to take lots of colorful pictures, to include the one above. There are so many different kinds of orchid blooms. I try to grow them myself but do not really have the proper conditions for orchids.
