It's going to be a LOVEly week - Photo No: 1


No matter how one feels regarding the celebration of St. Valentine's Day,
in all honesty it has become another of those over the top commercial
 endeavors to encourage purchasing of flowers, chocolates, cards, high-priced 
restaurant meals and such. 

I admit I have enjoyed all those things over the years, however this week
 I've decided to do a little celebration my own way. . . . . . . choosing to share
 a photo with something red every day, not just on the 14th!
February can be such a brutal month weather wise, and even health wise for 
some, so I thought a pop of red each day of this Valentine week may help
 to cheer things up.


From today's photo, taken through the dining room window, of one of a large group
 of cardinals in the fig tree, it's obviously wet and very dreary around here.
How these brilliant birds - especially the bright red males - light up the garden.
At this time of year their red deepens. It will soon be time to mate with all those
 just as pretty brown females also sitting out there on the dripping branches.

Looking through my older photos I've found several to share
 with you, one will be appearing each day.
Perhaps you will consider joining in and do the same - it would be
 such fun to see the lovely red photos you can dig up in your
 photo archive!
