Needles Of The Pines - Missoula, Montana

"If Mother Nature patches 
leaves of trees and vines, 
I'm sure she does her darning 
with the needles of the pines, 

They are so long and slender; 
and somewhere in full view, 
She has her threads of cobweb 
and a thimble made of dew." 

- from Pine Needles by William Hamilton Hayne, (1856-1929)
Originator of Pine-Needle Basketry
