Pinecones

If I was so much of a nature geek that I had a favourite tree, I think it might be this one. I photographed a European Larch last winter, without knowing what it was. It had no needles on it, and the branches hung like a Weeping Willow. Now I have another reason to love them; they have soft, fuzzy needles and pine cones with scalloped edges.

The Tamarack is similar to the Larch, except it has much smaller pinecones, about the size of a dime. See my pink-hued tamarack print~ it is getting a lot of treasury love on Etsy these days.
