This is an illustration of a peach leaf for my Tompkins Trees Map. Debby, the Tompkins Park gardener, pointed a peach tree out to me. I had missed seeing it altogether, mistaking it for a shrub as it is out of easy view from outside the fence. I’m trying new techniques in Inkscape. I think this came out well. It is meant to clearly show the pattern of the veins. I’ve been at this identification project for the past two years. I keep adding more and more detail to the map. I’m adding flowers and shrub locations to the map now. Who knows when I’ll ever be willing to call the map complete enough to print. But I hope to have maps of individual gardens online soon.
I’m heading to the park to confirm details on the Central Lawn right now. And I have vague plans for a garden tour or two before the leaves go away.
