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 75:

Red clover

Trifolium pratense

Coming into bloom around the neigbourhood on grass verges.

Leaves are hairy, darker, and more oval than white clover, but with some variation in shape; leaves usually a little larger than other clovers, usually but not always with paler "v" mark. Clusters of 15 - 30 reddish-purple flowers forming a spherical shaped head; flower heads elevated on stems and slower maturing than white clover. (Massey Uni Weeds Database website)
