1. They have declared this a ‘mast’ year for pinecones. I can personally define that as a pain in my back from picking up hundreds of them from my neighbors’ two gigantic pine trees. It also means pitch falling on anything that is left in their vicinity for more than a few minutes. If I had a craft for sale that required pine cones, I could have a really good revenue. 🙂

    • Sigh. Since the majority of pine cones I found were in the park in Illinois (like this one) or in someone else’s yard, I was able to enjoy them, but I can see where they’d be a pain, literally, to you. Maybe you should start making the firestarters from them. I think they’re dipped in wax and evidently work quite well to start those lovely fall and winter fires. 🙂

    Gorgeous details. Love that shade of brown against that dark gray background.

    Oh what a great photo and title 😀

  4. A couple of weeks back I went on a hike and the trail and nearby forest floor were littered with them. I wished I had room in my bag for a dozen! It’s been on my list to go back and collect some for fall.

    I find them lovely too. 🥰

    Fun stuff & a great shot.
    What’s that icy stuff under the pine cone? Ice?
    So it’s pining away on ice?

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
