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.
