Rose hip, oak leaves and acorns, sweet briar rose (eglantine) and sunflower. “With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine…”
Many English misericords have a central carving with a ‘surround’ to either side. The surround may have additonal figures that add to the central theme or they may be purely decorative. Maybe because it is May and I want to be in the garden I’ve been plucking the blooms from the foliate surrounds and trying to identify some of the flowers.
For the carver, beginner or advanced, here is your misericord flower and foliage inspiration board.
The flowers to each side of the wyvern could be woodbine, also known as honeysuckle. “Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine…”
More oak leaves, thistle, dianthus, wild rose, maybe an iris, stylized flowers.
Ivy? Thistle? Clover? Beech leaves and nuts, rabbit.
Rose hip and Tudor rose in the center…this could take a while.
