Colourful Fridays-RED


Today I have decided to join in Colourful Fridays with

Red Poppies growing at Kainga.
Red Paving with Aussie thongs out the back door.

Red Wool waiting to be made into something.

My Red Rooster plate and the Red shelf sitter Rooster.

Tulips in Tasmania on our holiday a few years ago.
We don't have many red things around our home. Though Red is one of the dominant colours used in advertising. Think the famous cool drink company, Red Cross, Red-Bull Air Race,Red -Nose day,Red Cross Blood Bank and of course Valentines Day which would have to be the day that most Red Roses are sold.
I hope you find a splash of red in your day today.
Happy days.
Bev C

This is a cool idea! Red is so fun to look for. The colors for our university are red and white, so I see it everywhere I turn. People in this town even buy cars to get into the spirit! Now I'm going to be looking for red inspirations like yours.

What a cheerful sight on a dull, dreary day!

Love your Aussie thongs!

I love the poppies. I couldn't get any to grow this year - first time I've planted them. I was very disappointed. Glad I got to see yours.

Red is just so much fun, don't you think?!

Red, nope! But since I've been quilting, I have started to appreciate the color more and more. Your 'reds' are beautiful!
Word verification: ANGER. That is what red sometimes did with me LOL

Happy Friday to you Bev and hope you have a lovely weekend. The photos are very beautiful and bright. Makes me happy. : ) I really love red but I also do not have much red around the house. So the red I have is in the garden.

Oh the poppies are to die for! They're just gorgeous, I love them.
And that red rooster plate - my mom would go ga-ga over. And that brilliant wool stash is delicious! I wonder what that will become?!
