My garden has a good amount of activity even in winter.  The deer come to eat the bird seed in our squirrel proof bird feeder. (No one said anything about being deer proof.) Cardinals, juncos,  titmouse (titmice?), chickadees, doves, nuthatches, and several kinds of woodpeckers make our garden a regular stop in their search for winter food.  I purposely leave many of the seed heads in the garden for the birds to feast on in the winter.  The 2 images that I used for mandalas today are part of this winter garden activity.  The deer prints in the snow, highlighted by the setting sun made for interesting patterns.  Some seed heads of a miniature black eyed susan were a stark contrast against the snow. The patterns revealed through the mandalas are just as intriguing.   I hope you enjoy these.
