Ruby Tuesday – Wild Strawberries! November 23, 2009

In November???

Well, actually, it’s wild strawberry leaves,  turned autumn red ruby and here festooned with the remnants of the morning’s frost:

I liked the way each of the leave’s tiny, hair-like spines had captured its own accumulation of atmospheric rime.

This was taken at about ten AM in the deep shade of a stand of firs, and the crystal structures were becoming indistinct as the day warmed.  I bet it was really good a couple of hours earlier!

Thanks to Mary over at Work of the Poet for hosting this rubilicious meme.  Go visit her for more rubiliciousness!

You’re all very nice. 🙂

Yes, it was cool to find these (many) frosted strawberry leaves amongst the moss. I kicked myself for not finding them earlier in the day, but then, I was working, and wandering around in the scrub with a camera isn’t part of my job description.

So I got what I got, and I’m glad you liked it.
