Our California native Tar Flower (Madia elegans) is coming into bloom all around our house! How lucky are we to live next to serpentine grassland with these?! This flower is synonymous with the summer of my childhood. Wading through the meadow, I would emerge with every bit of clothing drenched in their smell. Blooming from June to September, Tar flower produces a highly aromatic sweet scent (sort of like honey) and is covered in tiny sticky globules that collect insects- in turn, attracting a cascade of various predators. An important late season nectar source for native pollinators, they are also wickedly easy to grow as they tolerate clay and require almost no water. They will grow entirely off of spring and winter rains that were long gone several months ago! Native plants are beautiful, unique, and vital. I challenge you to name 10 native plants in your neighborhood! 👍🏻🌱🌼 #californianativeplants #nativeplants #keepcalookinglikeca #madiaelegans

Guys. A year ago I started drawing again after taking a long hiatus. I felt part of me was missing, but didn't really know what I should be making. Exactly a year ago I was wandering around the Los Osos Oaks Reserve when I realized this is where my heart and passion was rooted, in our California landscapes, in the plants and the wilderness surrounding/ scattered around our cities and suburbs. I had been spending most of my free time on the trails running, photographing, hiking with my kids, learning about our native plants. Of course this is what I should explore and connect with in my drawings. This was the first drawing I did. A year ago. Some hummingbird sage and monkey flower. Thanks for hanging out with me here on IG. I appreciate the company. May your day be filled with light and flowers.

The wildflowers keep coming: Perideridia kelloggii - Yampah, host to anise swallowtail buttterfly. #cherryhillwalk #californianativeplants. ~~~ #morningwalk #getoutdoors

Just flashing back to when I was riding in the truck with 30 of my native friends. These plants are so special and have been here long before us and will be here long after we are gone. A special thanks to @_native_hummingbird and Hahamongna Native Plant Nursery for all that you have done, and all you will continue to do, restoring and advocating for California's native landscape.⠀⠀

We love getting up early (before 9am!) to see beautiful, native tarweed flowers before they close up for the day. Talk a sunrise stroll this weekend at Sailor Bar to see them!

This poor butterfly got caught in a web trap while trying to get some nectar from this Mimulus tilingii (Large mountain monkeyflower). Mother nature's cycle in action.

We all come from the earth. Maybe we are not native to "this" or "that" land, but we all rely on the same basic elements of this earth in its entirety. As with the plants. Why does one plant deserve a place in the environment more than another? What gives them more of a"right" to exist than another deemed as merely a weed or an invasive? .

Caltha leptosepala // white marsh marigold⠀
Ranunculaceae⠀
White marsh marigold is a sweet early season flower you can find in the mountains when the surrounding snowdrifts are still melting. It grows in saturated soils on pond margins and streambanks in coniferous forest habitats throughout the western U.S.

The feathery flower styles of the fruit of Mountain Mahogany, Cercocarpus betuloides. These plants are in the rose family - not true mahogany. They gleam on the hillsides as if they were backlit from every direction. #nativeplants #californianativeplants #cercocarpusbetuloides #mortonpeak #mortonpeaklookout #sanbernardinonationalforest

Holly-leaf Redberry, Rhamnus ilicifolia, busy ripening at Morton Peak yesterday. Saw a Wrentit toss and catch a berry 🐦👍🏽 #rhamnus #ilicifolia #hollyleafredberry #nativeplants #californianativeplants #sanbernardinonationalforest #mortonpeak #mortonpeaklookout
