Revisiting Christmas – Pinecone picking

Pine cone Forest PathwayEvery winter, as I’m sure you can all relate, lighting up the fire is one of the most well awaited tasks of the season. (Along with all the delicious comfort food – puddings, roasts … ahh don’t get me started!). That well welcomed scent of the fire burning away, warming the cockles of yer heart!
Every Summer we always look forward to all hopping into the car along with our gloves and strong garbage bags and go Pine Cone Picking! The pine smell wafted throughout the collection period, bringing back the beloved Christmasy aroma – it felt like Christmas hadn’t even left yet! I still have Christmas carols in my head!
We hopefully bagged a big enough collection to last us a winter worth of fires (although really here in Australia our Winters aren’t that bad). It’s so much fun to throw those bad boys into the fire and hear them snap, crackle and pop – 10 times better than fire starting wood and newspaper I tell you!

So, once more, here is another Summer post with photos of the adventures we have gone on and showing you pictures of some of my favourite places in the world!
So sit back and enjoy! :)
