I have always enjoyed photographing wildflowers. They come in a virtual rainbow of colors and run the gamut from large and gaudy to sublimely colorful and barely visible. I'm reminded of a couple Bible verses that are favorites of mine. "And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these." From Matthew 6:28, 29. What can you say? They're just beautiful and pleasing to look at.
Surprisingly, Southern California has it's fair share of them. From the poppies to the wild chicory in the desert, there are plenty to chose from. All we need is plenty of rainfall especially later in the winter season and they'll come up. They make such lovely subjects for postage stamps as well. I have a number of them for sale and, here are my recent designs for your enjoyment. Thanks for looking and please consider my stamps next time you're in need of snailmail postage stamps.
Here's a link to ALL my stamps.
