On a recent trip to the arboretum, I took this picture of an agave and the flower stalk. It was from last year's bloom. But I loved the look of this huge flower stalk against the bright blue sky. The stalk was about 9-10 feet tall.
I wish I could have seen it in bloom as it must have been magnificent with the size of the plant.
This is the mandala I created from the picture. It just seemed so proud and brave to be standing there in spite of the winter weather.
The blue background isn't a fill on photoshop, it is the actual blue of the sky.
