Happy Easter :)

This week I finished a commissioned mandala I had to paint for Demi.
Just in time for her birthday tomorrow.
It was a lot of work to paint those 7 hummingbirds, but a joy as well.
I have used them in several of my mandalas and ATC´s before and you can read its meaning here.

Demi is born the 30th of March so in the middle I painted a yellow triangle , symbol of femininity  and water. Surrounded by 3 daffodils. 
Daffodils have meanings of faith, honesty, truth, forgiveness, and forthrightness. They are ever vigilant in returning each spring, and with their return we are reminded that their beauty is capable of following on the shirttails of even the harshest winters.
How true that is at this moment!
We have some daffodils in the garden they are trying hard to kick off Spring.
It is still Winter here. This is the longest winter I can remember so far.
We had 2 Spring days 5 and 6 March and then Winter came back.
Well next week the temperature will go up a little :)

Have a wonderful weekend

Today I celebrate the birthday of Goedele.
My friend died in December only 48 years young.
I will try not to be sad and really make today a celebration. 
I will always be grateful that she came into our lives. 
She was such an inspiration and still is.

Today I lit my special hummingbird candle for her (a gift from another special friend).
The hummingbird is a symbol of peace, love and happiness.

Hope you all have a hummingbird kind of day :)

Animal Wednesday / Capetown

Went to Capetown for 5 days and I took my brother along

We did the highlights and had a great time.
 I took a lot of pictures but here are the ones with the animals ;) 
 A blesbok
 Ostriches in a farm
 I always love their eyes

 Baboons on our way to Cape Point
 I love them
 They seem so friendly and harmless..........
 My brother thought this was a plastic one, but believe me it was real
 Birds waiting for crumbs to fall,,,,,,,,,,,
 Ostriches in the wild
 Near Cape of good Hope
 Penguins at Simonstown
A lot of them................

We had a lot of fun and we enjoyed Capetown. 
I came home today just in time to post these for Animal Wednesday.
Still tired from a 11.20 hour flight.
So I will go to bed early ;)

Happy Animal Wednesday :)

Just a little note to say I am still here..............
Waiting for the end of the winter, which seems soooooo long this year again.
Still very little to show. Working on a new mandala.
The garden is still in rest.
And I am trying to wake up from hibernation.
Can't wait for Spring to arrive.

Hope you are all having a wonderful week and that you are enjoying Spring or just like I looking forward to it.
