We also had lots and lots of beautiful vines along with the arm-width branches that came down. Some of the wood I'll cut to save for the fire-pit. In the tradition of the women of my family we couldn't see just burning all the beautiful vines. "Waste not", goes the saying. Mom got out the trimmers and started to collect out the vines, and started weaving beautiful wreaths. The more stiff vines that wouldn't weave, she is transforming into gorgeous garlands.
