A Bit of Tundra at Peters Lake

Pen and ink
8 x 5 in

This little piece of tundra is mostly Dryas, a circumpolar flower that grows in North America, Greenland, Scandinavia and Siberia. It is one of my favorites because its creamy flowers, lustrous leaves and fluffy seed heads are all beautiful. It is a tiny tundra plant, best enjoyed by getting down to its level.
