Spring is coming. We know this. But still, snow squally clouds let go their fluffy stuff... and the prickery stickery teasels catch it. At least on the windward side.
- Can you tell what direction the wind was blowing?
- What do you notice about the stem of the teasel?
- Can you figure out why (back in the day) spinners used teasels to comb the wool before spinning it into yarn?
- What else do you notice about the teasel?
Now go for a walk around your house or through your neighborhood. What textures do you notice in the plants (dead or alive) where you live?
