|Outdoor Black Locust Branches|
I remember as a child loving branches, little sticks and such. I didn't carry one around like a lantern or sword, but I did feel a special connection with them. Adults are trees. Kids are branches. I think if I listed favorite things to do for a living, collecting kindling wood and branches for art would be on the top ten.

The more texture and gnarly the branch, the better. Twists and turns make a good branch story. However, I take what I can find. During the holidays they serve as ornament trees, and throughout the year, a perch for bird. As the seasons progress, a flower or two can be added to a bouquet of branches in an elegantly tall glass vase.
