Cyndie caught a moment of nature’s colorful glory that has sprouted on our property. The first time I walked past this gem, I paused with the intent of picking up what I thought was something manufactured that had blown onto our land. It displayed such an artificial intensity of red, that I automatically assumed it must be trash.

A little research turned up the likely identity as sarcoscypha austriaca.
