Outside a light rain is falling and the beautiful white covering we enjoyed the past few days is drip, drip, dripping away and will soon be gone. So I had to reach deep into my archives to find rosy red flowers for this week’s Sunday Stills Photo Challenge. Here’s what I found.
A flowering currant – looking quite like a lilac don’t you think? – I love that both the flowers and stems are rosy red. I think I’ll get one for my garden.
I love fucshias and you can find them in all shades of pink and red – the hummingbirds love them too.
They also love rhododendrons – our Washington state flower – as I discovered one day at Soos Creek Botanical Garden. Scroll through the pictures below and see the Anna’s hummingbird feeding.
Finally, I’ll close with the dahlias that were a gift from my mom – transplanted from her garden to mine and coming up reliably every summer since.
Yesterday was Valentines Day – it came and went without much fanfare as we’re still in a pandemic and also snowed in. I told my husband I’d take a rain check (correction ‘snow check’) for a steak dinner with a view, sometime this spring.
