one waterlily

Here is one mandala of a waterlily, I liked it for the soft pastel colors, which seemed peaceful to rest the eye on.  Certainly not as bold as the sunflowers.

Sunflower Star

On my way out of the Botanic Gardens this sunflower was facing the sun and had an area in shadow in front of it.  I liked the bright yellow color.

Another Sunflower

Another sunflower from my garden that was growing right next to a purple morning glory.   The colors are complementary, the purple makes the orange pop!

Sunflower with glowing edges

Glowing edges does neat things to the colors and indeed makes the edges glow.  I liked the 5 point star in the middle of this created sunflower.

Glowing edges bee

Glowing edges version of the previous mandala.  I liked the different colors that became visible
and you can still make out the bee.  Ah, not quite the same this is a 6 pointed star and the previous one is a 5 pointed star, smaller slice of the pie above.)

Another Bee

A bee on Black and Blue Salvia. I contacted the Botanic Gardens to find out what this plant was and thought the name was interesting!  Even found it online and ordered a plant.

Bee Square

Although the overall picture is round the bees add a partial square element to the composition.  At the Botanic Gardens there are bees all over, so it is not surprising that they find their way into the pictures I take there.  The reddish color of this sunflower added interest.  The yellow dots are the tiny individual flowers that make each sunflower seed.

Sunflower Square

Sunflowers are gorgeous by themselves or manipulated like my Square above. This one came up in my garden and had rust colored streaks that made for the fire like color around the edges.  The square format has interesting design elements
