I have been hunting and gathering in my yard. I'm taking the online class "Ode to Nature" by the talented Alisa Burke. Go see her post about the art of collecting here.
In my immediate surroundings, I have an abundance of sticks and weeds! However, I do have a long list of nearby places to venture out to when I get the chance.
Meantime, these walnut shells make me laugh - don't they look like little owls peering at the camera?
