March Mandala


The Spring Equinox: a halfway point between Midwinter and Midsummer. With it comes the return of spring, with its treats for the senses: soft moss to walk on, scented trees and blossoms, rich custardy eggs to eat, the bright beauty of spring blooms and, of course, the uplifting birdsong. Now is the time when old seedpods from autumn's bounty start sprouting new life. The reawakening of life is all around us: buds are forming on the trees, and the very first flowers can be found gracing our newly-green landscape. The birds have returned, their cacophony of calls forming early morning music. Chickens are laying again as the sun greets them and we, too, feel the restless excitement of spring in our bones. Oh, what a beautiful time to awake!

This nature mandala is part of my rewards for my patrons, the generous people that make it possible to share my magic with all of you. Every month, they get a seasonal mandala to use for personal use - they can have it printed on canvas for their wall, printed on t-shirts, use it as a computer background, etc. If you'd like to learn more about this program and how you could get a beautiful image like this one every month, just visit . Have a beautiful spring day!
