Wild Rose Hips in pen and ink

This week's Illustration Friday prompt is renewal. I'm killing two birds with one stone today because I'm at work at the Nature Centre and this doodle is for a display of fruit-bearing bushes that I've been working on intermittently for much, much longer than I'd like to admit. Funny how some things get pushed aside.

Anyway...

The way I see it, fruits are a plant's best chance for renewal. Not the only chance (when you start looking you find that plants actually have all kinds of sneaky ways to make new plants), but the only way to ensure that good ol' hybrid vigour.

And now I really should get back to work. Different work than doodling, that is.
