This shrub reminds me of basket weaving. Several years ago, I took a class in Pomo Indian basket weaving at a local recreational park. For materials, the ranger took us to the fields to gather sedge roots and redbud stems. The plant materials are cleaned, and then split into many thin strips before weaving into a basket. I wish I could find the basket that I made, so I could share it here in this post. Here, are pictures of prints made from the seed pod and leaves of the redbud tree.
