Our summer was VERY long here in the Pacific Northwest and it’s been harder to find the beauty of red that I’m used to this time of year…So I really did have to hunt.
this plant is called a ‘burning bush’ plant and should be entirely red by now.
Only a few leaves have obliged.
‘Cardinal Flower’ still in bloom in the garden.
Chocolate Cosmos, purply, really…
the twigs of the dogwood
berries on the hawthorn tree
spikes of chard–magenta, really
my neighbor’s holly bush (really!)
and the only red maple leaf I could find.
We normally have stands of red in neighborhoods already;
I think they’ll be turning a little late, I guess.
And the best red, the blood of Jesus. My watercolor attempt to
show what beauty flowed from the cross.
