Inspired by Springtime: Mandalas

I’ve been inspired by the blossoming of spring!  

True to the original meaning of the word inspire, “to breathe in”, I feel like I’m breathing in new life and spirit as each day unfolds.  The soft greens and reds that lightly color the hillsides provide such a sense of hope and potential.

Inspired by that color palette and needing to create some mandalas, I uncovered this close-up image of a Hydrangea blossom that I took last year at Sonnenberg Gardens.

The resulting mandalas do have that “inspired by springtime” feel, don’t you think? 

How are you inspired by springtime?

Be nice to a friend and to me by sharing this!  Thanks!
