This mandala is made with the flowers of the jumping cholla cactus. We have these growing in our front yard along the fence. They act as a deterrant to anyone trying to jump the fence, but I look forward to the beautiful blooms every spring. I have paired the mandala with this Washington Irving quote, but both could be matched with other images or text. Can be made into prints, posters, or cards.
