''Let the beauty we love be what we do.'' ~ Rumired clover

The day I was walking along the nature trail above the Pacific Ocean, I was especially grateful to be breathing in ocean air. It had been a week of much energy shifting with the full moon, and getting out into nature was the perfect stabilizer for some of the internal changes I was experiencing. This time of year the excitement of seeing new spring flowers blooming has pretty much passed, but I enjoy experiencing the changes in the cycles of life. This day the red clover was really catching my eye. It seemed to be sending out a special vibration that I wanted to capture in mandala form.

I looked up properties of the red clover and it has many benefits from adding more nitrogen to soil to being a blood purifier and having the ability to lower blood pressure. When I look at this mandala, it seems to say to me Be light. Be happy. Keep moving. Stay grounded. Enjoy life's many blessings. Rejoice.

This is spectacularly beautiful. It has energy, flow, light, and love coming from it. It brightens my day and shows the possibility for all that is in front of us. Thanks for sharing your gift and talent with others so we can benefit! This would be a great present for a birthday or holiday! It has so much emotion!

Very beautiful, Sue. The clover's message came through clearly in this mandala. Yes, it's a trick staying grounded these days. These plants all help us remember to also keep rooted.

I love the photo of the clover and the green fern with it, so brilliant.

I like that you included the source image. You are so in tune to the beauty of nature around you, even when it's tiny, it's not insignificant to you.
