Recently, I spoke again to a dear friend after somewhat of a lengthy period of time in which circumstance prevented us from communicating much. It was an insightful conversation, and I was reminded how time really cannot tarnish deep and sincere friendships. Amongst other things, he spoke of his desire to begin journaling about the various types of vegetation in his surroundings. We spoke about the different possibilities of layout and format. Listening to his excitement about such an endeavor, and after doing a little research about the formats and history of herbariums, I decided to do an entry in my sketchbook of some plants that are very common in my part of the country.
