One of those days when the only chance I get to draw is for 20
minutes or so, when I arrive early for a meeting. At least in the
car park at Greenhead College, Huddersfield, there
is no shortage of subjects to draw.
I'm just wondering whether the tree I'm drawing really is a lime,
when Harold and Sheila, two Yorkshire Wildlife Trust members, drive
in. Sheila walks back across the car park and checks it out for
me. She brings back this fallen fruit - the seeds are distributed
by a helicopter type wing - to prove this is a lime. Most likely
the hybrid common lime, Tilea X europaea.
I've just got time to draw the fruit before it starts spotting
with rain and it's time for my meeting.
