When I left this morning, the temp was below 80°F (whew!) and I saw the dew thick on the windshield. Liquid diamond?
In the oblique light, I found this gnarly trunk with a fern platoon casting pointy shadows on it.
My eye got distracted as I walked by another stand of ferns by bright pink that my brain could not associate with fern botany. I looked closer and discovered that it was a bloom-cluster from a crape myrtle that loomed above.
