Can you guess what this is? Check out all the hills and valleys, the striations, the little pricklies in the dark green. It's the stem from one of the blue hubbard squash in my garden. I love squash stems for their fabulous texture. I love  how the knubby browns are interrupted by the smooth green stritations. I think I'll try to carve a stamp to replicate this. What textures in nature do you like?
