Close Up

This week’s photo challenge is called Close Up

A pine cone has a brand new look up close. 

We had several pine trees around my childhood home that we called “The Pines”.  When we were girls my sisters and I had to pick up the pine cones and sticks and any other foreign objects out of the yard so Daddy could mow.  

The pine trees are gone now. Daddy had them all cut down because they were infested with beetles. We still call that section of the yard “The Pines” though. 

This could be one of many pine cones I gathered for decorating once I was older and had my own family. I have a glass hurricane lamp filled with them sitting in my living room.
