About the Art. I created this layered mandala art, titled Orange Tapestry with Bee, in early 2020 as part of a series. The flower is a reflex chrysanthemum, which I photographed in one of the glasshouses at Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, during a Fall Flower Show. This is a disbud mum, which was carefully groomed to produce a single large bloom on a stiff, upright stem. It's called a reflex mum due to the shape of the petals, which curve down and away from the center of the flower with a messy bit on top. I photographed the big bumblebee in my yard. I leave fallen leaves every autumn for the bumblebees. They dig their over-wintering burrows in the bare patches of soil that result. In exchange for the buffet I lay out for them in the garden, the bumblebees provide photo ops and pollinate my vegetable garden and berry patches. In this mandala, I meant the bee to look curious. She's just checking out the weird flower, wondering where the entrance might be to the nectary, if such a strange flower even has a nectary (a gland that produces a sweet treat to entice pollinators in to gather up some pollen and distribute it flower-to-flower.) Quick tip: cultivated plants with double blooms often carry no nectar or pollen because their reproductive parts are missing. That's why a native Echinacea (or coneflower) is a better choice for your garden than a fancy Echinacea with pom-pom flowers. The native plant and the bumblebee grew up together and know what's what. As you enjoy your orange bumblebee sticker, keep in mind a bee's confusion when encountering odd, man-made flowers!
