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 53:

Mouse ear chickweed

Cerastium fontanum

Description from Wikipedia: Cerastium fontanum, also called Mouse-ear chickweed, Common mouse-ear, or Starweed is a species of mat forming perennial, or rarely, annual plant. It is native to Europe but introduced elsewhere. Mouse-ear chickweed's identifying characteristics are tear-shaped leaves growing opposite one another in a star pattern, hairy leaves, and small white flowers. (Nature Watch NZ)
