Here's a few more nature shots from my walk a couple days ago. I rather like the close-up of the pine tree branch. Next winter (did I say the W word), I might want to reference it for a piece of embroidery. It's very easy to see the direction of the needles. I like to use my own photos instead of relying on someone else's interpretation of such things.
Don't forget to do some stitching for World Embroidery Day!
