Welcome to Milkweed Rising, the online home of Linda S. Gribko, artist, author, naturalist, gardener, family historian, and photographer. You’ll find a bit of all that here, organized so it’s easy to pick and choose what’s of interest to you. Please check out the “About Me” page if you’d like to know more about Milkweed Rising, and, as always, thank you for your purchases, which help me maintain Yellow Bird’s Rest, my property in the Central Appalachians, as habitat for birds, fungi, and other wild things.

Look deeply into nature and you will understand everything. – Albert Einstein


 An online shop where you’ll find a quirky collection of products and art pieces that are never random, always interesting.


Art that carries the spirit of nature and place, including mandalas to decorate your space and provide a focus for contemplation.


Where new art is debuted, garden tips and poetic verse are shared, ecological issues are explored, and philosophical ideas are espoused.


Photographs that celebrate the vibrant colors of wildflowers, the play of light on landscapes, and the battlefields of the American Civil War.

 Giving Voice to Dawn and The Lion’s Apprentice, the first two books of Ellie’s Story by L.S. Gribko, will set you out on a mystical adventure into the past.
