Years ago a good friend gave me a journal that I fell in love with. The cover was bright aqua and there was a line drawing of a beautiful california poppy on it – it’s the last image below. Over time I’ve seen a lot more artwork by Jill Bliss and thought I would share some of her native plant drawings today. As a gardener I can really see how much time she spends with the plants, and as an herbalist I appreciate how some of her prints list the plant’s medicinal uses. Lovely work.
