Sketchbook, Krista Anandakuttan Spring 2015
A spring to remember: strawberry, strawberry, (strawberry, strawberry), pea.
Of note: Fragaria x ananassa: not a berry, a strawberry is really an aggregate accessory fruit… Enjoyed (wild) since the stone age, cultivated for bigger, more beautiful, sadly! less tasty fruit.
Pisum sativum: not a veggie… The pea pod is a fruit, a friend of mankind for more than 5000 years. The vehicle for Mendelian genetics!
