Trichostema lanceolatum (common names: vinegar weed, blue curls, wooly blue curls, california rosemary, terpentine weed, camphor weed). Lamiaceae (mint) plant family. Spanish settlers referred to this plant as "romero" due to it's strong fragrance, similar to that of rosemary. The foliage contains volatile oils with an aroma like sweet vinegar. This plant was used by indigenous Americans and early settlers as a cold and fever remedy. It's aromatic oils are antimicrobial and therefore appropriate for seasonal illnesses. Vinegar weed is an excellent remedy for stomach and digestive issues, including sluggish digestion, bloating, acidity, and constipation. This common plant can even be used topically for analgesic pain relief on sore muscles and swollen joints. Would you like shiny hair that smells like meadow flowers? Vinegar weed makes a lovely hair rinse that even remedies dandruff. 
Trichostemma lanceolatum is a California native, ranging Canada to Mexico west of the Sierra mountain range. It thrives in dry, nutrient-poor soil. 
For tea- one teaspoon of dry vinegar weed (or two teaspoons fresh) infused in one cup of boiling water- cover and steep 5 minutes. Strain and serve. Enjoy after a large meal to enhance digestion.

For topical use- hang your herbs to dry. Once dry, place one cup of organic oil (olive or coconut) and 20g dry vinegar weed in a glass jar with tight fitting lid. Place jar in a water bath and simmer for 2 hours. Strain and use as massage oil.

Hair rinse- 2 handfuls of fresh vinegar weed infused in one quart of boiling water- steep one hour. Strain and use after shampoo and conditioner as a final hair rinse. 
Message me for any questions!

I wish I had taken the time to ID this paintbrush in the field as it is proving to be rather difficult from just this picture. I am leaning towards Castilleja linariifolia, but maybe a hybrid between that and Castilleja parviflora? I don't know much about Castilleja and am finding myself wanting to learn a lot more about this amazing species! 
I found this at about 8000 ft on the eastern side of the Sierras near June lake.

California Honeysuckle braving the heat wave on the Sonoma Coast!
Lonicera hispidula, also known as pink honeysuckle, is a low elevation perennial woodlands vine native the the western US. 
The California honeysuckle grows as a loose shrub, unless it finds another plant (or a trellis) to latch onto and climb. It's lovely tubular pink flowers are very attractive to hummingbirds. After flowering, clusters of red berries appear, and are a delight to many birds. 
The hollow stems of lonicera were used by the Pomo people, a native California tribe, as smoking pipes.

The Hooker's Fairy Bells(disporum hookeri) piece is finished! The stippling was done using a .003 Pigma Micron pen and then translucent watercolour was applied. Really pleased I was able to complete this by today so that I might begin working on another drawing for weekend. Open Studios, in October, is quickly approaching and I have quite a bit of work I would like to complete before the event.

Mountain coyote mint ๐ŸŒฟ
I think it might be Monardella odoratissima, and if so, the name is extremely fitting because it smelled unlike any other plant I have ever smelled before! 
Sweet and minty with the most heavenly fruity undertones ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
And I must have not been the only one who thought so! While I was taking it the sweet smell an array of butterflies, moths, bees, flies and wasps were happily dancing from flower to flower ๐Ÿ

A wee bit of an update on painting the Hooker's Fairy Bells(disporum hookeri) leaves.

Great glaze tip! By @giselleno5ceramics: "Balloon resist, first try. I saw @jeremy_smoler try this but I think it worked better for dipping glazes if you want a super clean line around the rim. I will try it with dipping next time. I had been brushing everything but I'm preparing buckets of glaze right now so I can start dipping and pouring instead. It will save lots of time and gain a more consistent result." #potteryvideos #etsymudteam #glazeday #ceramicsandpottery #wip #workinprogress #californiawildflowers

Three subtle layers of watercolour have been added to the Hooker's Fairy Bells(disporum hookeri) leaves, still allowing for the pattern created in ink to show through.

Hemizonia congesta (Hayfield tarweed). An annual herb and dicot native to California, of the daisy (asteraceae) family. Like other tarweeds, the stem and foliage are sticky and have a rich, musky fragrance (note the resinous globules on the flower stem). Blooms in late summer- the honey bees are all over this one.

I spent the weekend scrapbooking with 40+ other ladies at a retreat at Apples Bed & Breakfast in Big Bear, CA. โœ‚๏ธโœ‚๏ธโœ‚๏ธ The whole place has been remodeled and the grounds are gorgeous, filled with wildflowers, birds, and butterflies ๐Ÿ˜... I came home so relaxed. Two chair massages didn't hurt either! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I captured this after eating one of the #whole30 lunches I had packed. Meals were included plus there were gobs of snacks like dios and chips, brownies drizzled with caramel, homemade fudge and toffee, popcorn, s'mores ... I resisted it all and stuck to whole30 all weekend. Feeling good! ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘Š How was your weekend?

Some wildflowers on our walk in #griffithpark today. California buckwheat, Mojave asters, and a happy plant community! California buckwheat seeds are edible, and the leaves, stems, flowers, and roots have been used to treat various minor ailments (see Garcia and Adams, Healing with Medicinal Plants of the West).

Finally finished inking the Hooker's Fairy Bells(disporum hookeri) and ready to add watercolour! This will be a slow process too, as I prefer to add the colour in translucent layers, allowing each to dry before the next is applied. This technique is important to have patience with, as you do not want to end up covering all the fine detail accomplished with the ink. Wishing everyone a lovely weekend full of joy ;-) #thenaturalline #californiawildflowers #hookersfairybells #workinprogress #penandink #pigmamicron #stippling #watercolourart #sketchingfromlife #workingartist #artistoninstagram #etsyartist #specimens #artiststudio #scientificillustration #botanicalart #aptosca #aptoscalifornia #naturelover #forestwanderer #centralcoastartists

A resilient native herb and a resilient native animal for #wildflowerwednesday and #wildlifewednesday. This month is the end of the bloom period for coyote mint, which flowers in chaparral and woodland communities along the coast and in the Sierra Nevada foothills. The nectar of their lavender colored flowers is much loved by butterflies of all sizes, from large western tiger swallowtails, to small Blues. #coyotemint #coyote #monardellavillosa #canislatrans #californiawildlife #Californiawildflowers #nativecaliforniaplants  #CAalphabet #alphabet

Just a leaf and a half to go and I will be done stippling the Hooker's Fairy Bells(disporum hookeri) with a Pigma Micron pen. I hope to be finished by tomorrow, so that I might play around with mixing watercolours, and then begin the process of painting on Friday. Wishing everyone a beautiful day or night wherever you are in the world ;-) #thenaturalline #californiawildflowers #hookersfairybells #workinprogress #penandink #pigmamicron #stippling #sketchingfromlife #workingartist #artistoninstagram #etsyartist #specimens #artiststudio #scientificillustration #botanicalart #aptosca #aptoscalifornia #naturelover #forestwanderer #centralcoastartists

These flowers are here in the morning and gone when I get home in the evening. Perhaps they can't take the heat. #thoughtiwascrazy #californiawildflowers #morningblooms
