Sketchbook: Mariposa Lily Seed Pods

Phew!  So much to blog, so little time!  I'll start out the week with some really fabulous Calochortus seedpods (these things just keep getting better and better!  For blooms, click this).  I was so taken by them, I had to do a little sketch and splash it over with wild colors.  The discovery of water color pens- fun!

I should probably add:  my work is copyrighted, so using my images without permission is just not nice and downright illegal!  Ok, back to the regularly scheduled program!

  1. You can certainly tell they're Calochortus. They're quite similar to the Fairy Lantern (C. albus) pods that are forming here, just more narrow, and upright, rather than hanging. Now let's hope all those little seeds make a for a lot more plants next spring! Love the sketch too!
