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.

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

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!
