I call this pencil-pattern 'drying herbs'. It's inspired by a big bunch of rosemary my friend Emma cut from her garden for me and tied up with string. It's hanging upside down to dry. I made a dish of rosemary potatoes to go with some other dishes last night. Simple and delicious.
And speaking of plants and herbs, I came across this beautiful flickr stream today, with thanks to another friend, Melanie. It's called the Biodiversity Heritage Library. She warned that I might waste a bit of time on it, so proceed with caution if you're a fan of vintage illustrations of mushrooms, flowers and ferns. Not to mention insects, animals, fossils and birds.
