“Wildflowers Loving Life”
Photo of the Week #14, selected in August, 2019

Those who know me can assure you that I love birds and wildflowers, so much so that I have taken thousands of photos of both all over the country. These lupine flowers just seemed to be overjoyed to be alive and thriving in the California desert, despite their hardship, and this shot is a favorite among my wildflower photos. Lupines are relatives of the famous Texas bluebonnets.

I took this shot while hiking near our boondocking spot just outside of Joshua Tree National Park. It was surprising to see such color in the hot desert, adding to the feeling of delight when I came across the seemingly elated blossoms.

Pacific Coast Garden

“Pacific Coast Garden”
Photo of the Week #10, selected in July, 2019

We had the good fortune to drive up the Pacific Coast and explore its fabulous scenery that extends over a thousand miles. In the Monterrey coastal area of California, many of the cliffs that overlook the ocean are covered with flowers and succulents. This is one of my favorite photos from one beautiful day of shooting.

Unfortunately, this widespread Northern California groundcover, called highway ice plant (also pigface, sour fig and clawberry), is an invasive species from South Africa. Any part or shoot of the species can grow into a full new plant, so you should take great pains not to transport them, and, like any invasive species, it should never be planted in a garden.

Colors From St. Helens Ash
Colors From St. Helens Ash, Washington State

Photo of the Week 006- Originally Selected 6/22/19-
“Colors From St. Helens Ash”

I hadn’t been to the Mount St. Helens National Park in Washington State’s southern Cascade Range in a couple of decades, but drove through it in 2019, and this pic quickly became one of my favorites. The area is almost unrecognizable since my last visit, other than the volcano itself. Nature has a way of reclaiming even the worst of disaster sites. Interestingly, I lived in Eastern Washington in May of 1980 when she blew, and I remember the bizarre ash clouds approaching and reaching us from across the state.
