Green with pokey leaves.

climbing an incense cedar
found under a flagstone in the garden
leaves turning red
upslope from the creek, on the north side

with its unique 'fruit'
The fructose lichen on the lower right of the branch
outer cover of berries, falling away, reveal white and black striped fruits, 'zebra berries'
fruiting at the lower creek crossing
Growing on an old apple tree; common name 'Oak Moss,' seen here growing on the upper left of the branch.
