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 44:

Cranesbill

Geranium carolinianum

Found growing in a dry stoney area on nearby Louvain Ave, this weed turns out to be a wild geranium. Its leafshape looks a lot like parsely piert, a common turf weed, but it has long spindly stems like a creeping buttercup. The true test in was crushing a leaf and sniffing its definite geranium scent.
