Pine cones and Willow

I managed to do a bit ofWillow harvesting last week, I wanted some Willow for a fish trap project, not too sure when I'll find the time though at the minute. The Willow came from a prunning job.



We also had two Pine trees to do aswell so as my Brother in law has just got a log burner, I collected a big bag full for him.



I love Pine cones, their shape is very symbolic, I found an interesting piece on their symbolism here. They also make great fire lighters.





So my brother in law now has enough to keep him going for a few burns for now.

  2. My mother used to make wreaths of cones, with acorns, buckeyes and other things on them. I wish I had one today.

    The wreaths sound good Gorges.
