Grateful for hazelnuts — I recently cleaned out the studio, and composted some of the older materials I use for these mandalas. When I mentioned it to my grandson, he said “Not the hazelnuts!” And yes, I keep the hazelnuts, and the little trees in our yard add to my stash. They are never the most showy bits, but they often are what make the overall design work. So I’m grateful for hazelnuts today.
