The Color Red

Red appears in nature, in all seasons, from flowers in all shapes and sizes, to the many colorful red leaves of fall, to the birds and insects in the gardens and in the woods, and even in the animals we find across the planet.

There are red cardinals, red blooms, red leaves and, well, you get the idea.

So here are a few images pulled from the archives featuring none other than 'red'.

Can you guess which one of these images is my favorite?

That's right. The last one is my favorite. This beautiful flower was blooming in a wooden flower box outside Isaac's Cafe a few weeks ago. I've wanted to post it sooner, but just didn't. It inspired me today to post 'red'. Years ago I learned that wearing red on Friday had a meaning all it's own. But for me, red on this Friday simply means the beauty of red that I have photographed in nature, and in this case spanning three different states. Stay dry this holiday weekend should you be the recipient of Isaac's leftovers. ENJOY!

    The Oaks high in the mountains have begun to turn... RED! I'm glad I will have some fall color to show my mom on her visit.
