24 days to go...

PINECONES

 
My mother always obsesses about pinecones. No, I mean it. I’m pretty certain that we were once walking around a forest in Poland, and she insisted on taking a pinecone she found in the forest back home with us. I never understood why she liked them so much until I got a little older. It’s just the way they open up and sit on mantelpieces like golden ornaments- they’re delightfully pretty. Well, when they haven’t been attacked with a spray of silver paint and made to look tacky.
