Seed Pods in Pen and Ink at Cambridge University Botanic Garden

Magnolia P&IIt’s always fun to learn new skills. Recently went on a ‘Seed Pods in Pen and Ink’ course at the Cambridge University Botanic Garden by Georita Harriott. It was an excellent course and I’ve come away with some new skills, and a love of Joseph Gillott’s Mapping Nib No. 659. This intriguing magnolia seed pod was drawn on the course. When the seeds emerged, they were a devine shade of dusky pink.
