yea i think the seed heads are beautiful. that gold, purple, brown is amazing. and the pea like leaves, its a great plant. but i love the straight shoots. eventually as it grows it turns into a small tree, big shrub kind of thing. makes for nice material to make a nice hut out of. theres a hand full of shoots i use that i found make great arrows, this, bladder nut, and honey suckle. i also like dogwood and redosier dogwood. but to be honest its not as good staying straight as these already mentioned here.

Well I never would have thought of a potato peeler to debark shoots.

And the idea of using the bags folding chairs come in gives me a use for ony lying around.
There is a crab apple tree that has some shoots in the middle that reach for the sky.
As said a bag in my pocket and I'm good to go.
