hide detailed image description

Four representations of different species of bluebell, with details of individual flowers and seed cases along the top of the sheet and at the base of each plant. From left to right the colours of the flowers are pink, mauve-blue, blue and green-white. The drawing is annotated in brown ink and framed by a pencil border. There appears to be the remains of an erased pencil note at lower left, and some cropped text in brown ink.
