A Winter Series - Pineconing

August 20, 2013

Our pineconing adventure was such a lovely family day out.  Our little girl's Aunty and Uncle live on a farm with a beautiful pine forest with an undergrowth of native tree ferns.

Poppet, Daddy and her Aunty walked up the forest road with her Uncle, his faithful dog and myself following behind.  
Complete with party dress and flower hair clips, the collecting began.. 
So many exciting things to be found like leaf skeletons, silver ferns, and baby pine cone starting to grow...

Of course no adventure like this could finish without freshly baked scones straight from the farmhouse oven.  Yum.

We returned with bags and bags of cones, some ferns to plant in our Tree-house garden, a few bunches of spring flowers and a happy although rather weary little girl.
