Today I walked up our hill, something I hadn’t done in a while. I knew I wanted some new horsetail fern, both for this mandala, and to use in the do-it-yourself mandala-making I’ll have  at the show at Toby’s next month.  Then the day got busy, and I didn’t get to put this together til just now. This is my first ranunculus of the spring, and the first snapdragon florets as well. This time last year I hadn’t discovered my genre yet, so it’s a treat to have new flowers to work with. In addition to the horsetail fern and ranunculus, there’s also hellebore, yarrow leaves, primroses, and anemone petals.

I love these bay trees arching over the road,
