Libby's Legions

Boot Key Harbor, Marathon, FL

I've lost track of how many women Libby has taught the pine needle basket skills to. She lost count too. Must be on the order of three dozen. Above you see the most recent half dozen in the marina lounge next week. She uses up materials too, seeding each of these women with a starter kit of pine needles and stuff.

Today, Bob and Sandra took us on a pine needle foraging outing. We went to Big Pine key. As the name suggests, the island has lots of pines; and they are the right kind for the long needles Libby needs. We picked up a generous supply today. Enough to last Libby a month at the rate she's going.

 :) I love it. It makes her so happy doing that stuff.

  1. Do my Southern pines qualify as "long leaf?"
    The needles are about 6."
