Or at least that's what I think this natural treasure is. I admit I am no expert on evergreens and the mysterious ways in which baby evergreens are created (seeds, pollen, how many biology classes have receded to the murky depths of my brain?) but my daughter and I found this near some pinecones beneath an evergreen tree. It was flexible and smooth and moist, not hard like the dry brown pinecones we usually find. And what gorgeous colors – mauve melting into green with hints of gold. Be inspired for dressing your home or yourself!
