I wish I could remember where this quote came from, I think it might be one of Β Tich Naht Hanh’s

    Beautiful. Funny thing is I came across this plant today growing in a woodland, on a new walk and did not know what it was. Now thanks to your beautiful mandala I do and have been able to Google it and find out more
    Thank you:-)

  5. This is so pretty and what patience you must have. It makes me look at mine in a new way. I do like it as a garden plant but I think some people don’t like the size and the fact that is seeds around. It’s so pretty and architectural though.

    • Yes, it might be because it seeds itself, but it is so easy to just pull up and get rid of. I’m not sure you should applaud my patience – I was supposed to be weeding – Ha! displacement activity!

  6. Absolutely wonderful! I planted a Leycestra last year. It’s marginal in my climate but it’s not dead yet. I hope I get some of those lovely blooms one day.

  7. Love this….a great tribute to this plant. I have the golden one too…and the bees love this plant and then birds love the ripened berries.

    • Thank you Linda. There are so many colours shapes and textures on this plant, as I went to put it in the vase I just became fascinated and started taking it apart – hey presto – a mandala!
