Garden Reds

"Reds" often inspire thoughts of red wine. Here are some tulip reds and a sand cherry.

These first three photos are all of the same tulip. It was Deb's idea to pose it against our purple wall for the first photo. The second and third photos are also taken indoors against a neutral sunlit window backdrop.

I found a fascinating site all about shades of red here: This tulip explodes with red at varying brightnesses depending where you look. There are darker reds and a color approaching ruby red (which is more of a "purple-red" according to that site).

This last photo is of a sand cherry taken outdoors in our garden. It's not exactly "red"; perhaps its leaves are more of a "claret" (wine) color.
