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!
