December Rose Hips

By December, only a few dots of color quiver in the landscape. Tethered like bouquets of miniature red balloons, rose hips strain against the faded browns and grays.

The photo was taken at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, Cross River, NY, on 12/2/08.

I love the idea of seeing them as tethered balloons. The berries seem particularly grand this year.

Why thank you, Spot! Somehow this fragment of the scenery looked a bit otherworldly.

Chris-- Like nature's ornaments! All best for the holiday season--and into 2009...
