I am currently not quite awake. Am I? No. I am not. Or maybe just not 100 percent coherent. Either way, check out the snow plant. I see these more or less every day but hadn't actually photographed them until this afternoon. It was about time.
Snow Plant (Sarcodes sanguinea) is an odd little thing. It has zero chlorophyll and is a parasite of conifers. So it's already got some unique stuff going for it just with that. You'll find it in the Pacific Northwest pushing out of pine needles near the base of conifers. Pretty hard to miss a bright red foot tall plant out there...(though sometimes they are more pink than red). Cool stuff.Today's Flower
