One of the prompts in Agnes Becker's Tales of Winter Enchantment podcast was to go out and find a pinecone.
It was a dark and drizzly day but I managed to drag myself out for some air and to see if I could find one.
Everything was wet and dripping with rain and melting snow and as I climbed the steps at the edge of the little pine wood I was at eye level with its branches
and they were sparkling.
As I got in close with my macro lens I saw the whole of that branch reflected in the droplet.
Surely this was where the inspiration came from for us to put twinkly lights in our Christmas trees?
It was so beautiful that I forgot all about the pine cone. The droplets were enchanting enough. x
