i am cleaning up all the nature collections i assembled during our stay. as you can see, it is dangerous work. on our terrace, a small pile of twigs and brambles had piled up. with leather gloves, i gingerly picked up handfuls to put into bags in order to transport it back to the garrigue where i found it. this collection of stems was hidden amid the debris. and i can assure you that leather gloves were not enough.
collections of wild blackberry and rose stems with thorns
