It is February and the month of love. I couldn't resist adding a tiny little love bug to my design
I used pine as the head and body of my love bug.
Two dried pine needles curl as the feelers.
I used hazel to balance my bug on twiggy legs.
Next the love bug gets seeded Eucalyptus eyes and a heart shaped rosary vine (ceropegia woodii) body
