Common reed

The first day of 2017 in my part of Cambridgeshire was cold, grey and wet. I decided to go for a quick run and discovered just how cold and wet it really was, battling through a headwind of horizontal freezing rain (who thought that was a good idea?!!) Back home I had a nice warm shower, got myself a cup of tea and settled down for a bit of drawing...

This is (I think) a Common reed (Phragmites communis) which I picked up when I last visited Wicken Fen a few weeks back. Coloured pencils in my Stillman & Birn zeta nature journal sketchbook, which is slowly getting filled up...

A happy New Year to all, here's to a healthy, peaceful and productive 2017!
