These packets contain the precious seeds that will return the land to its original inhabitants. At my location and elevation in the Los Angeles area, I am located in the chaparral biome, hence the chaparral mix of seeds. The soil around my house is also predominantly clay, so I also got seeds for the clay-loving California Sagebrush.
The chaparral packet contains:
Collared Annual Lupine
Large Flowered Phacelia
Today we sowed native plant seeds into a portion of the front yard. In Southern California, it’s best to sow in the fall in order to mimic the dropping of seeds from the mother plant in nature. The first rains of fall then come to nourish the seeds. They germinate and become seedlings, and then hopefully in the springtime they make flowers or become whatever they’re meant to become🌱🌿🌞 #nativeplants#southerncalifornianativeplants#theodorepayne#chaparral#nativeplantgarden

Exciting time. Full moon in Gemini coming up this week. 😀🤩🦄🐏
It's good to look where you're walking. You never know what you'll find. Dandelions & ground ivy are pretty, but I'll be participating in #killyourlawn this spring by replacing large segments with #nativeplants , like wild sunflowers, goldenrod, & asters. They make better friends 🦋🐛🐝🐞🐦
swamp chestnut oak (Quercus michauxii) - One of my favorite oaks, you can see the many hairs on the backside of the leaf, which along with it’s shape gives it another common name, cow oak as it looks like a soft cow ear. Occurs along the Atlantic coast from NJ to FL, west to TX, North up the Mississippi Valley to IL and OH.
Fantastic workshop this morning with Herbarium Jill. I pressed this Greater Stitchwort (Stellaria holostea) earlier this year and today we mounted our specimens. This plant is a British native and was used to treat stitches - wish I'd known about that on those long school cross country runs! Anyway, pretty happy with the result. #botanicalgardens#chelseaphysicgarden#nativeplants#stitchwort#herbarium
Seed packets. They’ll be available December 1st at the German Christmas Market in Leavenworth. I’m busy sealing up a couple hundred packets (as well as crocheting hats and scarves with our 100% alpaca yarn). They make awesome Christmas gifts. Information about the market is available on Facebook. Just search “German Christmas Market.” I hope to see you there! #nativeplants#nativeplant#naturelovers#handmade#localbusiness#alpacafiber#alpacas#kansas
We are thankful for the wonderful volunteers who choose to donate their time working in the EIH WaterSmart School Habitat Demonstration Lab. Volunteers have put in more than 800 hours in the habitat this year!
New Mexico is my current work in progress. I am loving the colors in this piece so far. 🍁
Who is prepping for their Thanksgiving Feast tomorrow? Are you hosting or bringing a dish to someone else’s home? I love the traditions of Thanksgiving and how certain dishes are enjoyed only once a year on that special day. What dish do you enjoy most?
Had a beautiful birthday spent on Santa Cruz Island exploring the fine work of The Nature Conservancy and their effort to restore the ecology before human interaction. Spent the day studying endemic native plant species and interacting with the endangered island Fox. Sailed back to Ventura with a sunset filled with pods of dolphins. Thanks @ackear for a great getaway to appreciate life and living things. #santacruzisland#thenatureconservancy#nativeplants#islandfox#endangeredspecies
Wherever the holidays take you this year, we hope you experience the beauty of the landscape speaking ⠀
"in its own regional accent," as Lady Bird Johnson described it. Listen closely, and you just might hear the wildflowers, grasses and trees saying, "Thank you!"💕🌿 We'd like to say it too: Thank you for being a part of our community and a partner in the conservation of native plants. #nativeplants#natureisbeauty#dailygratitude#natureconservation ⠀
