Day 208, of my 2016 sketch a day challenge

Meadowsweet sketch

Growing on the banks of the River Hundreds at Rushmere in Suffolk is a swathe of meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria). Not obvious from it’s appearance it is a member of the rose family it has tiny fluffy white flowers on top of tall stems. It’s flowers have an almond like sweet smell and once was regularly used on floors and was sacred to the druids.
