  3. Kat ~ good for you knowing it's name! We don't have them here either, unfortunately! They would be beautiful against the snow!

  7. Jill ~ they are all over the eastern half of the US...almost as if a dividing line was drawn right down the center from north to south. I just haven't seen any in our yard before. Maybe I don't have their favorite seed/fruit out.

  8. Red is one of my favorite colors. It is cheerful and rich and looks good on everyone, as your photo choices prove.

  9. WOW...this is a marvel ...such varied and spirited pics!

    ReplyDelete
  10. What a great collection of pictures! Fun, fun!

  11. Actually, red is a nice color, but I'm more of a "blue boy" in that all my clothes are in some shade of blue. (Tho, I DO have a bright red jacket that sets off my blue jeans nicely.) Great post, and a nice salute to red!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Skip ~ blue is my favorite color, too! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  13. give me red then! So, if I eat Red Velvet cake then am I doubly happy? Hmm...think so.

    Scarlet Tanger? Never heard of it before but oh, how lovely it is.

  17. Love the Bill Blass quote. There's nothing like red to chase away the blues!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wow, that little bird is sure pretty! We never see birds here with any bright colors. A blue jay is aobut as exciting as it gets, everything else is black or brown.
    Hugs,

  20. Hi, I loved reading all of the different colors of red. I love REDS--all of them.

    Enjoyed your pictures. The Cardinal is one of my favorite REDS.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  21. These pictures are beautiful. I needed a little dash of brilliance on this gloomy day. I normally love gloomy. I'm British at heart. But these past few days I've been craving summer!

    Happy Thursday,
    Jen

  25. @Betsy: How'd you know that was Skip signed in as "Simpson/Lynch Studios?" Was it knowing that I almost always dress in black? Or are people starting to forget there are two names in Simpson/Lynch? Gotta love it when I -- or Skip and I -- bend over backwards writing a script, and we get "Great job, Skip!" in the comments. ;-)

  26. my that's the reddest oak leaf i've ever seen!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Such a eautiful study in red. if only oak did turn that colour. Love it all.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Mr Fox. Actually, I went by the style of writing. You write and spell very accurately and grammatically correct. Skip is a bit more laid back in that way. Sorry, Skip. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ahhh, I see. Oh, by the way... I enjoyed your post! Got a little side-tracked, I'm afraid. Oops.

    ReplyDelete
  30. So, I was correct...it was Skip on the Simpson/Lynch comment? And if all else fails, sitemeters are a big help. Well, that and the fact that I knew you were partial to black...I mean this cape here is black, right? ha.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yep, it was Skip. And the cape is black. And my face is red.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Awww...you just need more coffee...hey..it's black, too! Here, let me pour you a cup. Do you take cream or sugar?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Usually, I take it with enough milk so I can drink it quickly, and I either use one Splenda or no sweetener at all. Sometimes, I drink it "black as midnight on a moonless night." (And you'll impress the heck out of me if you know where that quote is from!)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Well, that would be from Twin Peaks, right? See...I really AM a fan! OK...one cup...lots of milk and a sprinkle of Splenda coming up. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. "Twin Peaks" it is. You never cease to impress! Nice to see you keep knowledgeable about all the David Lynches out there, whether there's an "M" for a middle initial, or not.

    And thanks for the coffee, although on sick days like today, I often drink tea.

  36. Beautiful pictures Betsy and very informative too about the different shades of red.
    Thank you for visiting ariel. I'm from India which is a treasureland of mythological stories. Sometimes the stories that I've read in my childhood pop up and I write them down. I know, this was a sad one.

  37. I figured Vivien Leigh would make the list before Marilyn would. Heh.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Red is one of my favorite colors. I feel warm and cozy in a red room.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Jeffscape ~ oh, Vivian would have been a great choice!

  44. Beautiful photos. In the blah of winter there is nothing like red to liven things up!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love this post! Red is such a powerful color. I love brick and cinammon. Such pretty reds.Tomorrow is Red Dress Day. I have heart disease and we need to be aware that it's not just a man's disease. Red lips and red nails....beauty.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Nanatrish~ I read on someone else's blog today about wearing red tomorrow to support a cure for woman's heart disease! I'll wear my red shirt for you ..and others! :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Nice! I especially love that sunset!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I am loving all these reds, but my favorite is the little red birdy. It would be wonderful to see one in our state, but the Pidegons seem to rule our roost, although we do get a lot of Hummingbirds.

    Happy TT.

    God bless.
