This poppy-like succulent flower, sways and jitters on slender wiry stems and peeps around my garden.
The lovely Purple Crest Aeonium. They are going off everywhere in my backyard with their brilliant yellow crowns. I isolated this one to paint.
The Blue Agave always attracts my attention. Along the bike path at Butterfly Beach in Montecito, California on a warm summer day, here was one complimented by sunlit glimmers through the crepe like petals of the pink bougainvillea. It all came together exquisitely.
