They’re on the scrub brush that’s ubiquitous near the beach. Some of them are brighter red, others orange, and then I think they turn brown. They are about 1/4″ long, no more. I’ll try to notice how long they’re there. In three years, I’ve not seen them before. But it’s been warm far longer than usual. Which, unfortunately — I hope not tragically — is a common statement about climate change.
