Drawing a Day

Attached is my drawing of Citrus medica var. sarcodactylis, Buddha's Hand. Have been fascinated with this plant since I first saw it in the Orangery at DBG. My fascination is in part because of the unusual form of the fruit, the contrast between the buds and flowers and the fruit, and in part because it flowers all year long.
