HOLLOW STEMS (and my 200th Post)



A selection of hollow stems collected at Cromwell Bottom for making new reed pens. Not sure what the really fat stem is from, possibly Hogweed? it may be too weak to be much use but worth a try. The same goes for the skinniest stems. Sometimes imperfect tools make exciting marks and appropriate ones are just humdrum.  All will be revealed in time.

This is my 200th post here on Tumbling Hills.
