November Pawpaw
The leaves were gathered in early November, just before they fell, and show the ravages of weather and insects. Pawpaws, the northern most representative of a tropical family of trees, grow wild in Lancaster County, PA,  usually near streams, and bear large edible fruits that taste like banana custard.

Cyanotype on silk,  vintage embroidery, silk, hemp, wool, and corduroy fabrics, machine stitching,  and hand beadwork with seed beads and semi-precious stones..
