Although not as prevalent at the poppies and lupines, desert pincushions (Chaenactis steviodes) can also be found at Picacho Peak State Park. These flowers are also sometimes called Morning Brides. . . . . . #desertpincushion#chaeactissteviodes

Hedgerows in Napa in spring. Bursting with greenery and wild arugula. All the roadside volunteer weeds , the plants we ignore and discount but that we should be paying attention to. For our health , for our sanity, for the planets sake. #wiidplantsinhedgerows#wildflowers
Thanks for a short, but pretty epic weekend, @tacochapa! Checked another BBQ joint off the list, saw the Capitol, scoped out Lake Austin from Pennybacker Overlook, ate (so many) kolaches, stopped for roadside wildflowers, and found more Austin murals! #labarbeque @la_barbecue #austintexas When God brings someone into your life that uses every day as an opportunity to not only strive to make the world a better place, but to make you feel loved, hold onto them. When God brings someone into your life that makes you laugh so hard it hurts, bask ...
Hello instagram! 👋 My name is Maya and I am passionate about all things pollination 🌼 Today, I bought 100 Mason bee cocoons in hopes that sometime soon my garden will be buzzing with bees 🐝Mason bees are highly effective pollinators (they pollinate 95% of plants they visit) One if the best parts? They hardly ever sting! Pretty cool right? As spring goes on, this account will be filled with pictures of bee activity and wildflowers !! Let’s help the pollination community, one garden at a time 🌿 #wildflowers#beesofinstagram
baby’s breath (3.23) • Sometimes you’ve just got to bobby pin a bunch of flowers in your hair! You instantly feel like 7% prettier. So yaaaaaay spring and yay for Trader Joe’s flowers! Side note- I’m so so in love with this sweater!!! As much as I’d rather it be warm outside- at least I get to wear this thing! 🌸🌸🌸 . . . . . . #spring#girlgaze
“When California was wild, it was one sweet bee-garden...hundreds of these happy sun-plants brushed against my feet at every step, and closed over them as if I were wading in liquid gold.” ~John Muir #superbloom#californiapoppies
So excited to share with you some of my favorite photos that Camille and I took yesterday. Backward Prints road trips have been such a great way to explore and photograph my collection. Have a lovely Saturday everyone!. 🌱 🌼 🌿 🌾 #superbloom#wildflowers
Who else is excited for sunshine and wildflowers? I can’t wait for hikes and backpacking trips through Indian paintbrush, lupin, fireweed, balsam root, lady slippers, wild clematis, and wild honey roses. What’s your favorite wildflower?
'Wild flowers' a new painting inspired by a wonderful cover on a vintage wild flower book. Now available from our Two Artists shop (link in bio) I have finished the paintings for my exhibition @birchamgallery14 which starts two weeks today 6th April. There will be over 50 new paintings in the exhibition. There are currently four paintings available in our online shop.
Plodding on with my arteza pens, I love them but I have come to accept they do not work like watercolour. They are good, but I just can’t manipulate them like watercolour. I’ve tried endless paper, Arches, cheaper but good papers, yupo, photography, and this cheapo pad, which is the best so far!! It’s practically impossible to correct a mistake once it’s done on watercolour paper, the pigments are so strong. The effects on yupo are awesome. So a lot of clangers here in my wildflowers 🙈 DAY 83- WILD FLOWERS #makingarteveryday#wildflowers ...
Pink Evening Primrose and Blue-Eyed Grass. Haven’t posted in awhile. Spring is here and I restarted my walking exercise. Boy, am I out of shape! Have to photograph these common Texas wildflowers. So happy to be outside and see them. #wildflowers#texaswildflowers

Socrates was a famous Greek philosopher, but he was also famously sentenced to death 💀 by plant 🌱... There was no mistake in the plant Socrates ingested to poison him for his “crime”, but many people unfortunately do make this mistake and suffer the consequences. Poison Hemlock (Conium maculatum) is commonly mistaken for Queen Anne’s Lace, or Wild Carrot 🥕 (Dacus carota), since the have a strong resemblance and are in the same family group. However, there are some simple, easy ways to tell them apart if you look closely. In the first photo you can see the more rounded ...

On one side of my yard I have these Giant Poppies as big as my hand, while on the other side of the yard the blooms on those plants are only 1/3 their size (Normal size)! Odd! I wonder what made them so big? I haven't used fertilizer either! Definitely a SUPER BLOOM! #californiapoppy#superbloom2019
