flora

A couple people asked me how I vary my leaves and trees and honestly, it’s super easy! I’ve never made a tutorial/guide before so I kept this mega simple but I hope someone out there might find it useful at least!

Also, anyone can download the brushes I use for all my art on my tumblr page (: I only use around 5 so go nuts haha

Wow! Reblogging this for reference. I gotta start drawing more backgrounds.

Berberis thunbergii
Japanese Barberry is a plant that encroaches upon much of the remaining habitat of native flora and is a major host for ticks. What I see is that much of the havoc that the white-tailed deer are commonly blamed for is more attributable to the presence of this plant. More research is needed and while thorough manual removal is difficult convincing, Scott M does a good job of this the blog linked here.Observed May 13 2013 with Carol G and Eric L in Bartholomew’s Cobble, Sheffield, MA

Behold, a 120+ year old rhododendron
They rarely grow into anything larger than a shrub, yet alone a tree! 

Why does this not have more notes??

Because we’re scared
