Planting time

It's spring time here in North Carolina... the plum trees are blooming and the soil is ready to be filled with all kinds of seeds and plants...  
I am anxious to see all the plants in the garden green and ready for harvesting again... our crop of kale got eaten by the deer, so that was very upsetting to say the least...   but we have to keep on top of things all the time... and the baby chicks are growing and right now just taking care of 153 babies is a lot of extra time and work!!!   

So with all these things in mind... how to I tangle anything other than POTS... pots filled with SUNFLOWERS... of course we don't grow our sunflowers in pots... but that is what I saw when I looked at this new Mandala that Erin posted on Bright Owl.    If you have never been over to this site... please take a few minutes and go see all the lovely work and play that everyone has created...  Thanks Erin for all the work you put into this for us all...  Nursing school has to keep you busy.. but this added into your hectic schedule is another thing again... thanks for the effort... and take a few hours of extra GOOD sleep WHENEVER you can get it...  I think we all do...  and besides we can all wait for the posting...  

Well... no more ado.. here is my Zendala... as plain as can be.. 

 I love seeing the sunflowers in the summer gardens... ours usually grow to be about 12- 15 feet tall... so when there is a gentle breeze they all move together in a swaying motion... LOVE IT... they are such a HAPPY FLOWER...  

So sorry I missed the challenge last week.. time just got away from me...  with all the classes I am now teaching, time evades me at times... but I love it all... so that is the best part..  I will try and get last weeks done sometime...  no promises though... it is a fun one for sure.  

Hope ya'll have a GREAT week...  and that the spring weather is coming to your neighborhood soon.. . enjoy creating something fun... and love it while you are creating it...  

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.. and hope to see you again soon... 
Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie

    Spring is late here in the Netherlands, but I'm sure it will come our way soon.

  2. Nothing plain about this Zendala, so cute. I love sunflowers also. I think you are as busy as Erin, but you two girls are not abandoned by your artistic muses.
