Warm, bright color
round like the sun
Welcome summer! 🌞

There’s something about citrus that speaks summer to me. It’s so bright and sunny!
The idea for this mandala sort of just fell into my lap. In looking for something creative to do for the summer solstice, I came across an idea for making suncatchers using dried orange and lemon slices and I thought it would be a fun activity for my mom and I to do together. As luck would have it, a neighbor had stopped by with a huge sack of oranges a couple weeks ago and we needed to use them up. I had planned on juicing them, but dehydrated them instead.
We didn’t use them all for our suncatchers, so I went out to my potting bench the next day and made a mandala with them. Just as I finished, it began to rain, so I snapped a quick photo, gathered up my dehydrated slices (before they rehydrated 😉) and ran inside. So it’s beauty was fleeting – such is life, but I still enjoyed creating it very much!
Oh, and here’s the suncatcher I made…
You can’t really tell from the picture, but it’s VERY happy!
Wishing you a happy week!
