Flora Appalachee

Southern Catalpa

The southern catalpa tree puts on a glorious show with its bloom in early summer. It displays masses of orchid-shaped flowers. When these finish, it leaves behind  tough 14-inch long beans, a popular toy amongst country children who call it the “cigar tree.” This first print in the woodcut series Flora Appalachee is available from […]

Great Mullein

The great mullein is an ubiquitous wildflower of roadsides and wastelands. But this tough character earns our respect from its stature — often six-feet tall! This second print in the woodcut series Flora Appalachee is available from my Etsy shop at etsy.com/shop/floraappalachee.

Bloodroot

The bloodroot is one of my favorite Appalachian spring wildflowers. It sends up a demure shoot of carefully wrapped leaves which burst forth from a tulip-shaped flower into a grand daisy hearkening the coming summer. This third print in the woodcut series Flora Appalachee is coming soon to  my Etsy shop at etsy.com/shop/floraappalachee.
