Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Had fun being with family. Green healing colors above for those who over ate (me included).  A philodendron leaf with sun shining through it.

Last of the Sunflowers

Needed a little warmth this cold snowy day.  After a trip to the botanic gardens after light frosts - found this sunflower blooming amongst the dried grasses.  It looks like a sun ball, could use the real sun coming out and warming up the day. Perhaps the warm colors will help!

Day of the Dead

 Took a trip to the Denver Botanic Gardens for flower pictures and happened on a display of “Dia de los Muertos” a Mexican tradition that celebrates those who have departed Oct 31st to Nov 2nd. . They had several alters set up – one to pets, one to a vet from Afghanistan; and one to a house lost to the Black Forest Fire. The displays were interesting. As you walked into the gardens there were 2 decorated coffins. One of which is above.

Blue Morning Glory

This has been one of my favorite mandala, it is a square tile with several buds of the blue morning glory that climbed around my back door one year.   Hope you have enjoyed the variety of shapes in the Morning Glory series.

Morning Glory Swirl

Sometime it's not the flower but the bud that draws my interest.  The ribs and the swirl of this bud and the complementary colors behind drew me in.
