I’m participating in the online adventure travel magazine LetsBeWild.com’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge for bloggers. This week’s Challenge is: Texture in Nature! Remember to click on any image below to view it in a larger format.

I see texture in flowers and their interesting blooms, in this case a large California-native bush called Baccharis Sarothroides. No, I’m not a plant expert of any kind. A friend of mine helped me hunt the name down, I had no idea what it was when I took the pictures. I’ll do a future post with more photos of this Baccharis bush. I love the fluffy texture of the blooms. And it blooms in the late fall, who knew?

I see texture in fruit, in this case a beautiful yellow lemon on the tree, ready to be picked.

I see texture in this funny looking moss on a pine tree branch. I love it!

Finally I see texture creating an image on this tree trunk – a scarfed lady with a walking stick. Do you see her? Nature winks at you from the side every day. You just have to notice it.

    That baccharis bush is really cool. The lemon picture looks divine. I now want lemonade. Is that in your backyard? I just got back from Disneyland and love the citrus trees I saw around there. Makes me jealous.

      The Baccharis bush is taller than me and very large. It doesn’t stand out of the background during the year but the blooms definitely made me look.
      As for the lemons, they come from my neighbor’s backyard and grow over the fence, along with some oranges. Our spring crop was very small but this winter’s crop promises better. It’s great to see them grow from blossoms to full size fruit. Another blogger had suggested I take photos of them as they develop and I think I take her up on it next year.

    You know I love the lemons. Maybe it’s because I’ve never lived anywhere where citrus trees can grow. Would be lovely, I think. 🙂

      I don’t do much with my neighbors’ lemons because I usually harvest more than I use but we enjoy their oranges a lot. The blossoms are extremely fragrant but you have to watch for bees, who love them very much. I’ve tried to take photos in the past but I’m not sure which camera and SD card they ended up on, so I’ll have to take some new ones next blooming season.

  3. Yum, I wish I had a lemon tree! Great for cooking & baking with the zest too!

  4. […] few weeks ago, I gave you a glimpse of the Baccharis Sarothroides bush when I took part in a photo challenge on texture. Today, I wanted to share a few more of the photos […]
