Pine cone still attached to its tree
P is for PINE.
I'm pretty sire this pine cone comes from a red pine tree as there's a large stand of red pines in the forest where I took this photo.
Pine cone bird feeder
Last month, kids in a local garden group made pine cone bird feeders. These are huge cones from the southern U.S. The kids mixed various seeds with suet and then packed the mixture into the crevices of pine cones. Then they tied sisal string onto the cones so they could hang the feeders from branches. I've heard the kids really LOVED this project!
Pine needles coated with ice
This is a photo from LAST winter. So far this year we've had lots of snow but no freezing rain in my "neck of the woods."
