Have you smelled The Outside yet today?
It’s starting to smell like… SPRING!
I went hiking on Sunday and was inspired: look at what followed me home!
How did so many of those get in my pockets? Ahem.
Aren’t they delightful? I love that pinecones mimic the shape of what their seeds will become. They’re just like little upside-down trees!
Thank you trees, for the inspiration bundled up in these beautiful little power bombs: promises of trees yet to come.
I love these little things in the next picture – they look so amazing! They look soft and fierce at the same time: a delicate cocoon shielded in small spikes. Inside is a loofa-like sponge, and curling tendrils of dried vines dance from its stem. Anyone know what they are?
Which way to the pines?
Happy trails, spring-time revellers!
