Kerri - glad you enjoyed. November's almost over and there are still plenty of pine cones and other natural food still available!

Paula Jo - the cones I handled were sticky with sap vs. waxy.

paula jo

it is curious, there is a lot of white waxy subtance on my pine cones. Is this normal?

Marghanita - Thanks much. Pine cones in the home sound like a wonderful decoration!

Love this post. We have 14 Ponderosa Pines in our backyard-as you can imagine we have literally hundreds of pine cones which the birds and squirrels are very thankful for. I love bringing nature into my home and pine cones are a perfect decoration.
Thanks for sharing!

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
