Scotch Broom, plein air, landscape

Every year about this time the scotch broom blooms. the species is non native, invasive and a curse for many who suffer from allergys. You see so much of it that most people consider it a nuisance and an eyesore, kinda like dandylions. But like dandylions it can be quite beautiful in many ways. Quite a challenge to paint as the actual color of the stuff is difficult to render accurately. .... And don't even think about trying to pull it out without a chain and a pickup. SOLD

This is where my mom lives, surrounded by scotch broom.
