The Color Red


Roses are red, Violets are blue, I did not know what to write, here's flowers for you.


These are not in my garden, they are from my archives and were taken at 
Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, just 10 minutes from where I live.

Samson is wondering what to say too. Usually not short on words, he wants to do something for Gracie for Valentine's Day. He thinks she's expecting a ring, because she got a dress. Oh, my, I'm having mother's nerves.

Blackberry Lane said...

Very pretty! You are fortunate to be so close to the gardens.

Susannah said...

Hi Sandra, I could leave these on my screen and stare at them all day!! Simply gorgeous. But I must say...you have some flowers in your yard that are just as beautiful! I love flowers. It was good to see these today...it is gloomy here. But we keep going.

Boy, I'm with you. Sometimes I just don't know what to write and post.
That's usually when I dive back into the archives.
Very pretty red flowers.
Good job and per your comment on my blog...I love junk and rust too.
I seem to gravitate to it.

It must be a 'cold day in h___' when you don't have anything to say!!!! ha ha

Beautiful REDS today.. Thanks.

We have had to cancel our Valentine’s Trip to a little mountain town (Cashiers) in North Carolina. That horrible southern storm is going to give them from 6-10 inches of snow, plus sleet and power outages. We can’t even get into that area now… SAD–but it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Hugs,
Betsy

My motto is if i can't come up with anything else to post I use flowers. Love those beautiful red blooms. They have brightened up my evening.

I have a black thumb so I appreciate the beauty that can be created.
