Greetings and welcome to my blog, I am currently redesigning the site so some of my pictures are unfortunately missing because I had to close my sellers account that I had with the Smugmug site because as a free lance photographer I just couldn't afford it.
Once again I apologize for the bareness of my blog and will be working on it continually until I get it restored.
Thank you for your patience! -Megan

Dear bloggers, Here is one of my newest photos I was blessed to be able to spend my weekend outdoors and go hiking and have a pinic with my family and this was one of the beautiful wildflowers that we saw while we were out there. Its a Blanketflower I am not cetain of the exact species but it is in the Gaillardia family and there are several types that commonly grow along roadsides here in west Texas when we are fourtunate to get enough rain.  I have added hundreds of new products to my zazzle site  in the last few days so please have a look around and tell me what you think. Here is a link where you can see some of my newest greeting cards, postcards and postage stamps that I have designed.

Silver-leaved Nightshade

I love these flowers even though they are annoying weeds, we have so many of them blooming this year because we have been blessed with a good amount of rain compared to the horrible drought we were in last year. I have several products that I have designed featuring this photo. I will have another post very soon introducing a new product to be featured in my store so check back in a day or so.
Please also check out My website where you can check out my photo galleries and also buy prints of many sizes and even on canvas and metal as well.  
I hope you enjoy my photos as much as I do. 
Silver-leaved Nightshade or Silverleaf nightshade, Solanum elaeagnifolium, is a common weed of western North America and also found in South America. Other common names include Prairie Berry, Silverleaf Nettle, White Horsenettle or Silver Nightshade. In South Africa it is known as Silver-leaf bitter-apple or satansbos ("Satan's Bush" in Afrikaans). More ambiguous names include "bull-nettle", "horsenettle" and the Spanish "trompillo"

It is a perennial 10 cm to 1 m in height. The stems are covered with nettle-like prickles, ranging from very few on some plants to very dense on others. Leaves and stems are covered with downy hairs (trichomes) that lie against and hide the surface, giving a silvery or grayish appearance.
The leaves are up to 15 cm long and 0.5 to 2.5 cm wide, with shallowly waved edges, which distinguish it from the closely related Carolina Horsenettle (S. carolinense), which has wider, more deeply indented leaves. The flowers, appearing from April to August, have five petals united to form a star, ranging from blue to pale lavender or occasionally white; five yellow stamens and a pistil form a projecting center. The plant produces glossy yellow, orange, or red berries that last all winter and may turn brown as they dry.

Its range is from Kansas south to Louisiana, and west through the Mexican-border states of the United States into Mexico, as well as Uruguay, Argentina, and Chile. It may have originated in North America and was accidentally introduced to South America or the reverse. It can grow in poor soil with very little water. It spreads by rhizomes as well as seeds, and is common in disturbed habitats. It is considered a noxious weed in 21 U.S. states and in countries such as Australia, Egypt, Greece, India, Israel, Italy, South Africa, and Zimbabwe. It is toxic to livestock and very hard to control, as root stocks less than 1 cm long can regenerate into plants. However, some gardeners encourage it as a xeriscape ornamental.

The Pima Indians used the berries as a vegetable rennet, for those of you who don’t know; because before I did a little research I myself did not know this, that a Rennet is a complex of Enzymes produced in any mammalian stomach. This is one of the few plants that produce a rennet.  It is used to curdle milk in the production of cheese, it helps separate the whey from the curd.
 Kiowa Indians used the seeds together with brain tissue to tan leather. Kinda gross I know!!!
