‘When you have seen one ant, one bird, one tree, you have not seen them all.’ E. O. Wilson.

19 Sep

Stories from my Sketchbook . . .

The same could be said of seed pods—if you have seen one, you have definitely not seen them all . . .

I have absolutely no idea what kind of pods these are.  They look a bit like gumnuts, but as I am notoriously bad at identifying plants (and birds . . . and fish . . . and any song written after 1980 . . . ) I am not even going to hazard a guess.

Suffice to say that I had previously given fair warning that there might be more seed-pod sketches in your viewing future, so here you go . . .

    I wouldn’t know a gumnut pod from a peapod, but it’s a lovely sketch!

      Perhaps it is better not to know what exactly it is I am sketching anyway. That way I don’t invite comparisons to the real thing . . .

      I did actually look at some Snugglepot and Cuddlepie pics on-line to check out what gumnuts looked like!! I reckon they’re pretty close! 🙂
