Seeing Red

These are from a quick jaunt to Bethel Beach last week.

I was so mesmerized by the sky and its reflection in the water, 

I almost overlooked a surprise.

A splash of red in an otherwise green and gray sea of marsh grass.

Anyone know what this is?

I don't know either, but it sure is beautiful!

if you find out let me know.. I will tell you this if you take it home for a decoration it will turn brown and then to dust.

Salicornia virginica also called glasswort or pickleweed. It turns red in fall.

Pickleweed! Love the reflections--sometime it would also be fun if you could catch a reflection of yourself taking the photo. Betsy

LLC-and deborah - I agree.

AM-I'll take your word for it!

DJ-Thank you, once again!

Betsy-I'm afraid that might break the camera, but maybe I'll try it sometime.

Annie - Probably so. And if I'm doing this next year, there's no doubt I'll ask the same question. Memory like a sieve.

Daryl, it definitely is.

CG-She comes to my rescue often on this blog.

Is it Friday yet?
