Here is step 1 of my mandala for Josje, which I gave her today.
She is born on the 7th so a violet flower with 7 petals in the middle.
And guess.... what is the name of this clematis?
How appropriate since Josje's name is Joséphine Charlotte.

In real the leaves are more pink, but just like a poet I allowed myself some artistic license here.
The clematis symbolizes ingenuity or artifice. It stands for creativity, intelligence and idealism. The clematis also means mental beauty.
