where I collect wonderful branches, twigs, seed pods, lichen, cones and other treasures that Mother Nature discards, and I "recycle" them in different ways in my little gardens. Here are a few fallen branches I found a few days ago, which have been cut into 6" approx/15 cm lengths for houses (by my faithful Elf/DH!).
If you check the red mug in the post below you can see one of them that I've already made into a house, and another one with a blue door in the wire basket garden. I love the different barks, textures and knobbly bits on them. They add such amazing visual impact and dimension.
