100 Days Project

Jacinda: Inkweed

100 black ink drawings of common New Zealand garden weeds (plants found growing where they are not wanted). The drawings, made on A4 paper, will loosely depict the plants' essential characteristics. Where possible I will identify them using the Massey University Weed Database and other online sources. On completion I will output all the drawings as one large poster on photorag paper.

Day 16:

Creeping Buttercup

Botanical name: Ranunculus repens
Family name: Ranunculaceae

As with white clover, the leaves of creeping buttercup are composed of three leaflets. The central leaflet tends to have a longer stalk than the other two leaflets. In spring and summer, it has the typical buttercup flower with shiny yellow petals.
