Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean. John Muir

We have spent almost two weeks around #southlaketahoe and mostly anywhere on the #pacificcresttrail like today.  If there isn't snow to push through than there are flowers to your eyeballs to get through.  Life isn't bad๐Ÿพ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒธ

Can't work on painting wildflowers without including poppies!  Actually, I found it fairly challenging to match the orange (I was using pictures from online as reference photos). I also need to work on shading to get the form better. I love this learning process, though.... ๐ŸŒธโ˜€๏ธโœจโค๏ธ

"Serpentine soils are ubiquitous but with patchy distributions and have three traits; poor plant productivity, high rates of endemism, and vegetation types distinct from neighboring areas." #serpentine #endemic #californianativeplants #californiawildflowers
In love with the #California #Wildflowers... ๐Ÿ’œCommon Chicory, Cichorium intybus, is a somewhat woody, perennial herbaceous plant of the dandelion family Asteraceae. .

The wild flowers are still going strong in the high country! "California Tiger Lily" #tigerlily #wildflowers #californiawildflowers
also spotted a seaside daisy (Erigeron glaucus) along the trail. the cypress forest is one of their preferred habitats.

these wild asters looked unreal. they covered all the little glades in the cypress forest.

Since my last photos (and even these) didn't do it any justice, here is Mirabilis laevis once again #Nyctaginaceae (07.10.2017)

Sorry for the hiatus, expect to see a lot more starting in late August!

In all my years of gardening, I have never had my garden respond this well this quickly ever before. This is the most diverse I have ever had a garden and it makes me so freaking happy to see them blooming and thriving despite it being hot as butt out here. California wildflowers are the best!! And they're also starting to attract more various types of pollinators which makes me extra happy :) now the bees have more food ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ Also excuse the shitty picture koalaty, these were taken with my phone x(

I was sitting by this sunflower for over a half hour trying to get a picture of the native bees that were visiting it. But they were fast little guys and my iPhone camera can only be so quick! ๐Ÿ˜’ After nothing but blurry, unfocused pictures I just gave up. 
As I was standing up to leave I thought I would give it one last try and so I haphazardly took a picture without even looking at my camera and voila! ๐Ÿ˜Somehow this beautiful shot was the result!! A nice reminder for me to let loose a little, some of the best things happen out of your control.๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ
Sunflower pictured: Helianthus gracilentus

Late afternoon sun finally broke through the fog.  A great way to finish a grey day at the beach. #mackerricherstatepark #mendocinocounty #californiawildflowers
The Huckleberry Botanical Reserve has an ebook on their website with pictures of wildflowers. Since I haven't had a chance to visit in person, I had to make do with that. ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ #mycreativelife #watercolor #natureart #naturejournal #wildflowers #sketchbook #californiawildflowers #botanicalart #botanicalpainting #botanicalwatercolor #createeveryday #creativelifehappylife

Nasturtium leaves and flowers are just so sick.... and completely edible. 
Trapaeolum majus has been naturalized in several states in the US and in Europe, likely as a garden escape, but is native to South America. It has long been used in Andean herbal medicine for its disinfectant, antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. 
Garden nasturtium, or Indian Cress, has unique, distinguishable leaves that are nearly circular and shield-shaped, with white veining. The long stem of the leaf is attached to the center of the leaf rather than the base (peltate). The flowers are showy, with a long nectar spur, and can vary from yellow to orange to red, and the whole plant is edible. 
Trapaeolum was named by the Swedish botanist, Carl Linnaeus. His 19 year old daughter Elizabeth, a budding botanist, noticed a flashing light coming from the flowers at dusk, and wrote a paper about it, which was then published by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in 1762. At first thought to be caused by electricity or phosphorous, it is now understood to be an optical illusion, caused by the way our eyes perceive color as daylight fades. 
The phenomenon is known as the Elizabeth Linnaeus Phenomenon. 
British journalists published her discovery and Erasmus Darwin (Charles's grandfather) made many passionate mentions of it in poems in his book, The Botanic Garden. 
Through Darwin's publishings, Elizabeth's findings ended up having a big influence on the pioneers of English Romanticism, Wordsworth and Coleridge, for whom botany was an obsession.
