I love the rough delicacy of pine cones but not under your feet!
At the moment the weather’s getting warmer. Perhaps bare feet are in order? But be careful as those tough, woody pine cones litter the ground everywhere. But for their purpose they are truly delicate. The way those hard cones open when they dry out and the delicate triangular shaped seeds fall out to be scattered by the wind is genius.
I’m building up a collection of different shapes and sizes of pine cones in my studio. Memories of my walks in the forest. To me they’re like precious woody jewels.
