Arisaema triphyllium, or Jack in the Pulpit grows wild in the wooded area of my gardens.  If the flower is fertilized,  a cluster of red berries form where "Jack" once stood, encasing the seeds within.  Last fall, something red was buried in the leaf litter.  Upon further examination it turned out to be this fertilized small plant, which somehow had been uprooted.   Of course, it had to come into the studio to be painted.
