This bright flower sits in its pot awaiting planting at the arboretum. One of our lecturers gave each participant one of these spring plants. It was such a beautiful day yesterday, I decided to sit outdoors and sketch it!

My favorite colors! What a beautiful plant...I've never heard of a pincushion plant before. I wonder if they grow in California.
