Prior to this spring, I don’t think I’d ever seen a baby pine cone before.  Imagine my surprise, then, to see what looked like bright red berries on the pine trees outside my bedroom window.

I found this on the ground a few days later.  With all the wind we’ve had lately, they’re all over the place now, but this first one intrigued me to no end.

Ain’t nature grand? 🙂
