At this time of year when we often give gifts to each other, don’t forget the wildlife, especially if snow covers much of the ground.
If you have pinecones where you live, gather some up and acquire some honey and birdseed. Affix a wire or sturdy string to the pinecone so you can both handle and hang it. Roll the pinecone in honey and then generously through the seeds, then let it set. Think:
A gift from me to all of you, so
Now take the pinecone outside and affix it to a fence, pole, or tree branch so the birds and other critters may enjoy the treat. Replenish as necessary.
