Hyde Park Bunny

We went to Hyde Park last sunday and I picked-up a branch on the grass.  The bark's color was amazing, with fluorescent green micro-moss and bits of purple where the bark was bruised.  It had snapped just at an angle that showed the soft spongy white wood, enveloping a minuscule little brown twig like a blanket.  Back home, the soft wood looked like a nib.  Just sculpted by nature and randomness.  So I dipped it in a little juicy Herbin Ink ("Bouquet D'Antan").  Here's what the twig had to say.

Lamb and mutton

There were lots of sheep and lamb in the Lake district. This is a quick 3-minute drawing from the car window while the children attempted loud communication with the herd...!

The difference in English between Sheep and Mutton is that one is the animal, the other the food.
A lot of culinary terms in English are derived from old French,  Clearly lamb is such an English delight they did not adopt the foreign word for it!
