Lily Cross

A different version of a cross pattern, this time with an Asian lily prominent in the design.  Liked the way the stamens reach and gather toward the center.

White Paintbrush

Wildflowers are pretty in the high country this year, above a white paintbrush.

Have always loved the big seed heads of salsify, like a big dandelion to pick and blow them away. They are about 3 inches in diameter and are a natural circle themselves.  But with the kaleidoscope program I can make them even more round, this one has a star inside another star!

ribbon decorated tree

I had fun with this one, with the repeated patterns of the ribbons festooning a tree in a courtyard.  We were visiting Sedona last year when I found this, also liked the mosaic effect in the middle.
