I’ve been craving all things apple lately, but haven’t had the chance to get to the orchard yet this fall due to the wet, rainy (and then snowy) weather we’ve been having here. So I caved in the other day and went the boring route and bought some apples at a local store. I’m feeling like some fresh baked apple crisp is in my near future…
I’ve also been feeling like creating a mandala with apples, so after the snow melted yesterday, I went out and did just that…
This one sort of reminds me of a wreath.
My sister was with me while I was making it, as she had driven down for the day. I hadn’t really been ‘planning’ on making a mandala, but she helped me prune a few branches on the crab apple tree out on my boulevard that were hanging on the power lines attached to my house, and when I had noticed them earlier in the week I had had an idea for possibly using them in a mandala and I wanted to use the sprigs while they were ‘fresh’. Thankfully we didn’t get electrocuted while we were at it. 😉 ⚡
We laughed a lot yesterday and it felt really wonderful. She watched me as my mandala took form and felt my ‘glee’ (as she put it) when I discovered a few browning pieces of Cedar on my shrub, as they were just what I needed to brighten and provide a little contrast. It was fun to have her out in the garden with me while I was making it. We always have fun together. My seester. ❤
So this one has joy mixed in it, along with some delicious little apples. Thanks for letting share!
Wishing you a joyful, delicious day!
