After Dinner Doodles

Too dark now to do much sketching outside so it's time for a sketch or two inside.
Here we have some rosehips from the hardy rosebush in the garden. You tend to forget that roses bear fruit. You have your apple, cherry, pear, plum, peach, raspberry and strawberry all from the <i> rosaceae</i> family, but you forget that the rose bears fruit and there it is with the same name for gawd's sake. I guess we haven't been commercialized enough to it. Sigh.

Rosehips


I also sketched this mystery seed pod because I liked the look of its long laddery arms. The dried out plant stands about four feet high or so and inhabits a disturbed clearing. I will have to email my horticulturist friend who knows ALL.
