On Wednesday we had a visitor the herbarium-Moira Carter. She is an artist who has worked on the Iraqi Flora Project at Kew Botanic Gardens.
The previous day I had gotten out a variety of unusual looking seed pods for her to draw.
Here is some of her work:
Drawing of a horn nut, and unusual looking seed that looks very much like a bull’s head.
Martynia, or Devil’s Claw.
Thanks for visiting Moira!
