Not all that is red are flowers. This really was a challenge for me.
Red is not my favourite colour and I find it tricky to photograph its true colour so I couldn’t find too many in my archives. As I’m not able to hold my camera whilst wearing a sling, this is as good as it gets this week.
A very red grand piano – this beautiful instrument was provided to the people of Christchurch not long after the devastating earthquakes so they could play and/or enjoy some inspiring amidst the chaos.
Roses are red – and so are petunias and begonias
Fungi can also offer some reds in Autumn when life is not always rosy and colourful.
And here is my taonga/ treasure -my pounamu/greenstone “The spirit of life” I keep it in my little kit (flax bag) adorned with rosy red feather when I’m not wearing it. It brings me balance.
Crimson or scarlet
Compassions or Passion
Is clover a leaf or a flower?
Which is the current fashion?
The carpet of crimson clover crept through the garden.
The dandelions thought it dandy that there was another primary colour in the flower bed
Now all that was needed was something blue.
However the gardener was known for her sense of compassion whenever someone was feeling blue. Will that do?
