Purple heart

A stone I brought from White Rock, holding barnacles for my trophon snails, also carried this red-wine fuzz:

Soft, red cushion in my favourite shade.
I think it's an encrusting sponge, although it could conceivably be another of those invasive tunicates. (They were interesting and pretty, but I had to get rid of them; not an easy task.) I'll keep an eye on it as it grows.

And another heart for Clytie's Random Hearts blog.


  1. Hi, nice picture.. and very interesting that ))

  2. No matter it's botanical name ... what a GORGEOUS heart! And absolutely perfect for Guest Heart Thursday!

  3. Beautiful, both the heart and the photo.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
