Succulents - Living Mandalas

Below are photos of succulents from the beautiful garden of Doug and Terry Woodard. These glowing plants -- like the 360 degree iris of our own eyes -- are reflections, reminders and microcosms of the structure and design of our existence and consciousness. They are living mandalas, symbolic of the universe. The sanskrit word mandala means 'circle.' It can also mean: globe, orb, ring, circumference, ball , wheel; the path or orbit of a heavenly body; a halo round the sun or moon; and a multitude, group, band, collection, or whole body.
