Nesting

Did you know the needles on pine trees change colors and fall off?  I guess I never knew that.  We have several pines around our yard, not in our yard, but bordering it.  That means we have loads of rusty colored pine needles littering our yard.  Lovely.



The kids were out playing this afternoon and came up with something to do with all the needles.  Build nests.

My question is who's going to clean up all the nests?  I can guarantee the answer all around will be "Not me."

Probably me. Now you didn't expect that one.

We lived in Georgia when I was young and they call that "pine straw" down there. They use it to fill in flower beds, like bark or mulch. There were many service projects "laying pine straw." Interesting, huh?
