.... in THIS earlier post and THIS earlier post you can see and read about the California Fire Poppy and the miraculous event of particular wildflowers thriving in a fire scarred chaparral area.
Here is another such flower:
Someone wondered about the paper I use ....
.... it's a watercolor journal that was a gift from my Dad.
The journal paper is handmade 100% cotton rag and made in India.
It's quite thick and heavily textured.
You have to be careful because it doesn't tolerate "scrubbing" too well ....
.... so I'm learning to live with any mistakes I've made and not try to fix them.
Also, any pencil marks are not very easily erased because of that same problem.
It's a good paper to have in a journal.
Erasing and scrubbing are counterproductive to journaling.
Thank you for all of the wonderful comments on this particular series.
The sense of community in bloggerland is just exactly what I love about it.
It's the next best thing to being back in art class again :)
