Buds and pods……..

Morning all. For those of you who are working on pine cones and are getting ready to move to a new subject start
looking for winter buds or seed pods. If you look closely you will see many buds on trees and bushes, even if buds are small you can work them up larger than life, bring your magnifying glass.

If your still on your pine cone please don’t rush! It’s a lengthy project….enjoy it and take your time.

The photo above comes from the New York Times where there is a great article on Witch Hazel….go to the following link and learn all about this early bloomer….it’s not just found in the medicine cabinet.

Witch Hazel is also in bloom in the lower garden near the parking lot at Lasdon =)
