SAN DIEGO NATIVE WILD FLOWERS

SAN DIEGO NATIVE WILD FLOWERS – A series of watercolor botanical & landscape illustrations of the wild flowers that bloomed all over the coast after a wonderful winter rainy season that ended a 10-year drought.  I spent a few weeks driving up and down the coast photographing all the wild flowers blooming.  My latest addition is the blooming Prickly Pear Cactus, but it all started with the clouds of Wild Mustard flowers taking over the bluffs & lagoons.  I carry this beauty in my heart.

MAY FULL FLOWER MOON!

Tonight’s full moon is the FLOWER MOON!
 
Each month the moon has a name, which was used to track the seasons by Native Americans and during Colonial times. Some names for May’s full moon are: the Flower Moon, Mother’s Moon, Milk Moon, and Corn Planting Moon. This moon marks a time of increasing fertility, with temperatures warm enough for safely bearing young, a near end to late frosts, and plants in bloom.
ENJOY THE FULL FLOWER MOON!
