The color of these monkeyflowers was so intense that I actually desaturated the reds a bit so they wouldn’t look as if I had increased the saturation.

  1. Howdy! Would you mind if I share your blog with my zynga group?
    There’s a lot of people that I think would really enjoy your content. Please let me know. Cheers



  2. Hi,

    I own property in the Dehesa Valley. At one time mimulus this intense was found there. I have not seen it recently. Nevertheless I wanted you to know about One Starfish Ranch. We are just east of Sycuan. There are many natives represented there. I am pleased that there are still quite a bit of the old weaving materials present onsite. Kay asked me to write you. I hope the site allows you to pick up the email addresses of those who comment. I am looking for plants of the cardinal mimulus for the property’s disturbed section. I need some help to identify some of what is missing…I know at one time there was a low lying manzanita. I do not know what variety it was…I just remember it from my childhood…



    1. Hi Particia,

      I am not able to see Kay’s comments here. I photographed the mimulus you’re referring to on a road in the back country where i go for walks. Did you want a cutting from the plant?
