Things To Do With Rice Straw


Apologies for not posting more but I broke my right hand two weeks ago and that has seriously slowed down my photography and typing. Casts hit a lot of extra keys.

We grow a lot of good rice in Egypt and the stems can be used for these beautiful thatched umbrellas and brooms.

I always loved the thatched 'walls' in gardens. They gave privacy, but were prettier than bare walls. Better to construct things with the straw than burn it too.
