This painting is so close to being finished but it’s on break until after our move in about a week (😱). I wanted to challenge myself with this piece by painting the different stages of a laurel sumac plant through the seasons. It was definitely a challenge painting the tiny white flowers and the berries, but I learned so much from just trying. It's not perfect and far from what I had envisioned in my head, but a small step in the right direction. . #nativeplantproject #malosmalaurina #laurelsumac . Happy weekend, friends!!

I had never seen Common Mynas in Torquay until this year. They hitched a ride with all the concrete over-development that’s going on. They LOVE the urban. I’m doing everything to keep them out of my garden - and telling all my currawong friends to eat them. I’ve planted 25 extra native bird plants to counter them. And now I have my metal currawong keeping a close eye over my garden #currawongarmy #weneedgardens #downwithoverdevelopment #plantnativeplants

OMG, SALTGRASS!! A whole california native saltgrass meadow at Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve. I literally jumped up and shouted "Saltgrass!" after I saw it & l tasted the salt. I've been hoping to come across this grass for months and have been disappointed when I identified the invasive bermuda grass or crab grass instead. What a beautiful yard grass it might be, too. #Distichlisspicata #Saltgrass #Californianativegrass #plantnativeplants @californianativegrasslands #grassland #meadow #Californianativemeadow #Chumashterritory also I think #Tongvaterritory ?

Cup Plant (Silphium perfoliatum). I'm looking forward to seeing the migrating birds who'll be very interested in the seeds when fall arrives. #PlantNativePlants #365DaysWild

Cup Plant (Silphium perfoliatum) rescued from UW Madison's Henry Mall over a decade ago when gardens were destroyed by construction activity. Doesn't belong on a dry upland site, but thriving in our garden ... and a low spot further from the house. Glad I brought a few rhizomes home. #PlantNativePlants #365DaysWild

In the language of flowers, Allium symbolizes prosperity. 💜 In the garden, they are very easy to grow. These plants like well-drained soil and full sun. Starry globes with spire shaped flowers will be sure to catch any one's eyes! You don't want to miss planting these bulbs in the fall. It is also the 2018 Perennial Plant of the Year! #sheridannurseries #allium #pollinatorfriendly #pollinators #plantsomething #perennials #horticulture #pollinatorgarden #plantnativeplants #summergarden #inbloom #flowerstagram #horticulturaltherapy #plantlover #gardendesign #perennialborder #landscaping

The butterflies 🦋 have been hard at work laying eggs on the host plants in my native garden. I found some #monarchcaterpillars and 🐛 #blackswallowtailcaterpillars today and the garden is still buzzing with bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. If you want to attract pollinators, plant flowers that are native to your area. You can also offer some host plants like milkweed, fennel, dill, parsley and rue for the butterfly eggs. #pollinatorhabitat #pollinatorgarden #plantnativeplants #monarchbutterfly #milkweed #milkweedformonarchs #savethepollinators #butterflies #bees #hostplants

My favorite areas @thedallasarboretum are the spaces they have dedicated to zone appropriate planting. A visit last week is proof that if we are savvy when it comes to landscape design and the plant varieties we choose, our personal gardens can be lush~even in blazing summer heat!! #texas #indigenous #choosewisely #mossroses #plantnativeplants #xeriscape #savewater #besmart #greenspaces #lush #howdoesyourgardengrow #dallas #texas #thestagersdallaswerehere #thestagersdallas #publicgarden #plantobsessed #🌵

I know, it’s my own damn fault: This Cleveland Sage, my beloved centerpiece here in our backyard, is dying from root rot. Over time, I let the mulch build up about 5 inches above the root flare, and that’s a no-no, with all plants and trees really, but especially with these native drought tolerants. They just hate it. Mix in some well-intended, late evening, watering and you’ve got a recipe for disaster. I’m looking at two or three sages in my yard that look like they’re not gonna make it. This is depressing for many reasons: one-they’re just spectacularly beautiful plants. Two- pound for pound it’s hard to find a more bird-friendly, beneficial, pollinator friendly plant than the native sages of the west. The good news is, I can start over. The weather should start cooling down in the next month or so, and I, like all of us down here in the southwest, will take stock, recalibrate and begin again. #dilettantegardener #rookiemistake #plantnativeplants #californianativeplants #wildyardsproject

Leaf-Cutter Bee: in action, on Clarkia Unguiculata. I actually took this photo about a year and a half ago, and previously posted it. But I thought it be a good book-end to the image of the Western redbud leaves that played host to this year’s leaf-cutter bees. Also, I just dig this bee. A gentle, solitary bee, life is very short and very busy for the females. They use the cuttings to line the nest where they lay their eggs. Creating housing for them is a smart idea, and you don’t need anything more than a windowsill or the side of the house or apartment to get it done. Here’s a sweet little article about them, should give you plenty of ideas: https://thehoneybeeconservancy.org/leafcutter-bee/. #wildyardsproject #pollinatorfriendly #yourpropertyishabitat #bees #beesneedhabitat #nativebees #saveourbees #plantnativeplants

Good Damage: Leaf Cutter Bee, doing her thing on her favorite host plant, the Western Redbud. This of course is precisely what the Wild Yards Project is all about, using native plants to create habitat for all the critters that need it. Leaf cutter bees are highly specialized bees, with regional menus of native plants that they draw from. Western redbud, Clarkia, milkweed and a few others are the broadleaved plants that they love to build their nest from. As more and more of their native habitat falls to development, it’s just plain good manners to make sure your property has at least one of those plants for them to utilize. Being good pollinators, it’s a win-win for us. #bees #beesneedhabitat #saveourbees #nativebees #yourpropertyishabitat #createhabitat #wildyardsproject #plantnativeplants #californianativeplants #pollinators #pollinatorfriendly

Sneak Preview: A Meadow in West Gloucester. Artist @kim_radochia_studios and her intimidatingly capable husband, Peter, have cleared an area beside their studio, and created a dizzyingly alive meadow of natives and pollinator-friendly exotics. This Monarch visiting the Wild Bergamot is just one of dozens of butterflies that was circling the garden, competing with various moths, bees, wasps, and all sorts of resident and migratory birds. Full story, w pics, coming soon... #birdsneednativeplants #plantnativeplants #gloucesterma #meadow #nativebees #butterflygarden #createhabitat #yourpropertyishabitat

In addition to Milkweed, monarchs need late summer blooming flowers such as this Rudbeckia. A full spectrum of native plants will provide butterflies, birds and other pollinators with the nutrition they need. #monarchbutterfly #plantnativeplants #protecttheearth

Beautiful ginormous Prairie Dock leaves. (Yes, "ginormous is a real word rooted in the 1940s.) Beyond this it was far too windy to photograph most flowers and insects with a mobile phone today. So I had to "settle" for a simple walk this afternoon. #365DaysWild #prairie #PlantNativePlants #DriftlessArea

Bees and butterflies are apparently distracted by more interesting plants today. But someone else is very interested in the White Snakeroot (Ageratina altissima) flowers buried among tall brush. Suggestions from the entomologists out there? #365DaysWild #PlantNativePlants

Found two Monarch caterpillars this morning on some common milkweed in my meadow, pretty exciting stuff. This a a host plant for monarchs, some people think I'm crazy for planting this plant they call it a weed ,which totally incorrect. I only plant plants that benefit wildlife and pollinators! #westernmass #berkshiremountains #monarchcaterpillar #commonmilkweed #wildlifegardening #ecologicalgardening #bringlandscapetolife #plantingforwildlife #nativeplants #plantnativeplants #plantittheywillcome #nature #willdlife #savethemonarchs #lawnsareoverrated

American Toad: while shooting a photo essay on the wild yard of Kim and Peter Radochia, this little guy jumped out from under foot. He’s picked an exquisite place to reside, as their meadow project, here in West Gloucester Massachusetts, is literally teaming with bees, butterflies, moths and thousands of other pollinators, not to mention the visitations of many different resident and migratory birds. @kim_radochia_studios #gloucesterma #pollinators #wildyardsproject #yourpropertyishabitat #createhabitat #plantnativeplants #birdsneedhabitat #birdsneednativeplants

Odd [planting] bed fellows, this white sage and toyon. But if conditions are right - sun, dry side, and good drainage then, hey, why not? Summer seeds on one, summertime blooms on the other, and a Coast live oak looks on with approval. Check out what else is currently blooming in this @californianativeplantsociety local member's garden at @mbcnps_gardens . #salviaapiana #heteromelesarbutifolia #quercusagrifolia #californianativeplants #plantnativeplants #grownativeplants #keepcalookinglikeca

I’m no @natgeowild but I had a little fun with these impressive creatures while drinking my cold brew this morning. These little hummingbirds love these plants that are on a lot of sidewalks around town. Their wings can flap up to 80 times per second and their hearts can beat up to 1200 times per minute. #theydontneednocoldbrew #plantnativeplants

Monarchs flying around all day laying eggs allll over my momma's milkweed patch in western NY. My parent's efforts to plant milkweed and encourage their neighbors to become monarch waystations is paying off. Applauding their efforts and the efforts of everyone who has helped to support threatened and endangered species in their own backyards! #backyardhabitat #monarchwaystation #plantmilkweed #plantnativeplants #milkweed #nativeplants #monarchbutterfly #ifyouplantittheywillcome #westernny #wildlifecorridor #larvalhostplant #asclepias #nativeplantsofnorthamerica

Flashback to a few weeks ago checking on a community natural area and pollinator habitat planting we did a few years ago. Now full of beautifully mature native forbs, bunch grasses and shrubs buzzing with bees and a healthy population of frogs and birds. Great Basin Wildrye, two species of milkweed, native perennial sunflowers, Fireweed, Checkermallow, native buckwheats, Oregon Grape, Dogwood, Ninebark, Currants and more fill this space and make it a vibrant and productive natural area where once there were invasive plants and a dead space for diversity. Seeing projects like this come to fruition really keeps us going. Thanks to all in the community who made it happen and have cared for it along the way! #communitynaturespace #communityplanting #naturescape #pollinatorhabitat #wildlifehabitat #backyardhabitat #communityspace #plantnativeplants #supportbiodiversity #biodiversity #nativeplants #pollinatorplanting #butterflygarden #sharedspace #naturallybeautiful #communitygarden #hoodriver #oregonnativeplants #humblerootsnursery

My wildflower meadow is looking pretty stellar right now and so much activity between butterflies/goldfinches/hummingbirds/bees, and many outher great pollinators.

Wild Petunia (Ruellia humilis). Grows about 12" tall in the garden. I've tried adding it to natural areas around our house, but it appears to prefer the lawn more than natural areas! Perhaps evolved to tolerate grazing? Doesn't like tall competition? #PlantNativePlants
