The Garden in December (2): Chinese Lantern skeleton : The fruit of Physalis Alkekengi

Tidying up in the garden this morning. The sun was nice but moving round quickly, as it seems to do at this time of year, it is so low in the sky. So I quickly grabbed a few shots of the Chinese Lanterns at this fascinating stage. I posted one of them complete in October here: http://365project.org/ivan/365/2014-10-06

Appreciate your super comments and favs on the image of leaves still on the tree in our garden I posted a couple of days ago. Thank you. Keep warm (in northern latitudes!)
Beautiful close up shot

Now that I have seen these from an earlier shot (thank you), it gives me an understanding of how excellent this view of the "skeleton" is. Lovely lighting and detail. Like jewelry. Beautiful.
