Botanical Sketch #25 - Psidium Buxifolium

Botanical Sketch #25 looks like little olives, but is a relative of the guava family with small edible fruit that taste like berries.  They are a rare shrub in Eastern Florida or were at one time.
I had a hard time depicting the "twig" like ness.  I didn't want to fill the page with this image, to try and show scale and stature.  When I finished the sketch, I found it needed an frame to ground it, so I made one, highlighting the fruit, but still allowing the stem to peek out.
