Matthew has started school (*gulp*) so we're in the strange limbo of settling-in weeks, trying to find stuff to do on our half days. This morning we took a rainy walk in the park looking for conkers and things. 

We found these baby pine cones, picked a few and discovered that when you take them off the tree a little halo of pine needles comes off with them too - how cute is that! They were just asking to have eyes stuck on. So we did. Then we got them to stand up by sticking them onto drawing pins. 

They'd also make rather wonderful coconut trees, don't you think?
