    It's amazing that a cactus can thrive in the Maryland piedmont (if geologic conditions are right). One of our 3 native species, the pricklypear has only short, barbed bristles (not long spines).

    The numerous, delicate ray flowers of the fleabane presented a bit of a challenge for my waterbrush and arthritic hands. But fun to experiment with capturing details via negative painting.

    Enjoying the beginning of summer meadow wildflowers such as skullcap & meadowbeauty.

    The elegant woodland Blackhaw viburnum shrubs are in peak bloom. So many tiny flowers and stamens in each inflorescence! Way beyond the limits of my drawing skills, but hope to do better next time.

    How thrilling to discover a few small patches of the lovely "showy orchis" native orchid blooming along a local woodland trail!

    Spring ephemerals continuing! Thrilled to discover the delightful, dainty squirrel corn in floodplain forest

    Have you ever looked up into a columbine flower for the bees'-eye view? Amazing geometry

    Love finding the delicate little lavender Hepatica flowers -- and a few whites surprisingly among them.

    First find for me! The amazing, tiny, mycoheterotrophic Virginia Pennywort (Obolaria virginica)

    From the elegant, native ephemeral bloodroot in the woods to the weedy bird's-eye speedwell in lawns everywhere: So much to love about spring!

    Snowdrops aren't native here but are so cute as they naturalize in little woodland patches. Experimenting with a "permanent' ballpoint brown-ink pen.
