The New York Botanical Garden is a wonderful place to visit. I have spent many delightful hours there exploring the conservatory and grounds. The collection of begonias is particularly impressive, and I have taked dozens of photographs there, and used the photos for many of my botanical mandalas.
I loved the many colors and textures of this spotted begonia and the ethereal edge. I did minimal enhancement of this mandala to set it anginst a black background for an otherworldly effect.
