There are times on my everyday adventures when I find some very strange things. Some plants I find along the way are a complete mystery to me. I never find out the identity of some of them, like the one from this post here: Fuzzy White
The plant I have as my subject today may be another one of those. It may also be very familiar to some of you. It is still a very strange looking plant. One odd thing is that I think I've seen this plant before on another blog, so I think somebody knows what it is.
This second picture is what I saw when I was standing over it. I actually saw it first from a lot farther away. It was a small cluster of red just above the forest floor. The whole plant is only a stem that's maybe four inches long with a cluster of red berries on it.
I actually found it very deep in the forest, away from any of the hiking trails. There were no other plants like this around anywhere. I looked around for others, but this one was all by itself. I always thought if you see one of something, there would most likely be more close by, but this was not the case here.
I'm not sure what else to say about the plant. It's a mystery to me. Maybe it's some sort of evil alien life form that has come to destroy us all. Maybe it's just a small version of a normal everyday plant. Or maybe it's the next President of the United States. I have no idea. Do you?
