studies in scarlet

For this February 14th holiday that takes a circuitous route from honoring a 3rd century martyr to exchanging tiny messages on candy hearts to ask: who do you love? And not a red rose in the bunch, just some photos I stumbled on in a disused photo hosting site to mix some red into a rainy Wednesday. Happy Valentine’s Day!

    That was a nice nod to Valentine’s Day, Denise! I hope you enjoyed the day, wet through it may have been. Billie looks good framed by what I assume is ruby grass.

    Heard yesterday that people spend just slightly less overall purchasing overpriced Valentine gifts than they do for Christmas. Definitely a marketer’s dream. However, you can never go wrong with red in the garden. The perfect gift for plant lovers.

    @Kris, yes ruby grass which was reseeding a bit — wonder if it still is! Incredibly rainy winter for you, just when it seemed the winter rain for SoCal was broken forever.
    @Elaine, that’s crazy, I would never have guessed VD spending approached that level. The only red from my garden is the castor bean, passiflora and pelargonium. I rarely plan for including red unless it arrives on a really cool plant!

    Fun post and a wonderful way to view through a different lens, so to speak. The little red passionflower is a real treat.
