Winter Red






I love winter reds.
oh, sure...
soft spring reds,
saucy summer reds and
fiery fall reds
know how to charm us...
no lack of beauty there.

But I love the winter reds.
The misfit reds.
The standout reds.
The against all odds reds.

Can't freeze them out.
Can't bury them completely.
They just appear, as if from no where,
to remind us of all the life that's
brewing under the surface...
to remind us to find beauty today.
Now.
Beige and brown and gray and white beauty.
And some berry beauty.

Yeah, I love the winter reds

  6. Your pictures always make me smile. My kitchen window faces a thick patch of timber and I love seeing the cardinals perched on the snowy trees. Yes, winter reds are beautiful!

  12. Beautiful! I especially love the bottom shot.

    Living in Paris for 12yrs must have been amazing. I'd love to live in France for a couple of years or more but it's not possible right now. (after lots of trying to make it happen). :-)
