Flower Fix – Mandalas & Bundles of Joy

Spring is almost here. That time of earth’s rebirth.  There are a few flowers blooming in St. Louis now. Lenten rose, crocus, winter aconite and snow drops have opened. Their small flowers are such a joy to see, but their small size sometimes isn’t enough. I need a bigger flower fix.

The flowers are in tight bundles.  Like babies wrapped in blankets, these are bundles of joy.  Their flower energy opens my heart and fills it with joy.  I stand there as long as I can without looking too strange as I fill up with the flower’s beauty.  Then I take photos with my IPhone to carry the images with me.

I love the ability to easily create mandalas through my phone camera. When I take photos of flowers  (or other  nature scenes) I can transform that beauty into the beauty and embrace of a mandala too.

*Full disclosure, the Kaleidagram app was developed (along with Textography, Dotography, Mosiagram all part of Blink Tap LLC for IPhone and Android ) by my son. Here’s the Facebook page.

I’d use it and love it even if it wasn’t his creation.
