I’m back doing what I like to do best—keeping a nature journal. The manzanita is a fascinating plant in that its leaves are fleshy towards the center and taper to a thin edge. So when a manzanita bush is backlit by the sun all the thin edges of every leaf glow and it’s a spectacular sight. And this time of year there are thousands of these little pink bells on the bushes, which the bees just love.
The tiny little Blue-eyed Mary is hard to see unless you look for it, but it’s one of my favorites. These are drawn pretty much life size.
