Here is a collection of a dozen flower & plant photos from the last couple of months, made in the desert and the coastal foothills & inland valleys of San Diego County, around our home.
I’m particularly happy with the
Eriogonum deflexum (the blue is a result of the plant being in the shade, of course) and the Psorothamnus emoryi – I guess if I compile a flower & plant portfolio for 2020, those two are going to be part of it. “Nature’s Neurons” — a large, chaotic array of Eriogonum deflexum (Flat Top Buckwheat, Flat Crown Buckwheat) with fresh buds, Andrade Canyon, Coyote Mountains Wilderness, California. January 2020. Prints available. Polypodium californicum (California Polypody Fern), Rancho Bernardo, California. Mid January 2020. A beautiful patch of Claytonia perfoliata (Miner’s Lettuce), San Diego, California. March 2020. Asclepias albicans (Whitestem Milkweed) flower cluster, Coyote Mountains, California, March 2020.
