Red!

Red ... the color of passion. These oriental poppies come up every May and shout out of the garden like no other plant. They simmer and glow in the sun, and sizzle even during cloudy weather.

Here's the group of them in my front garden.

Other red plants are swiss chard.. yummy! Brightens up any vegetable dish.

Glowing impatiens..

A poppy getting ready to explode out of its bud!

Poppies behind the geraniums

Fuchsia buds hanging daintily from red stems.

New growth on my "Mirthful" Rose

A last red bloom on the walflowers

And one last look at the poppy again, with a dusting of black "soot" on its fiery petals.

Great post. I don't have much red in my garden, so it was nice to see these flowers and red stems.

Wow the red really pops out and looks great Sylvia! I just have a small garden so I don't use much red flowers. Blue shades make a garden look wider that's why I prefer it in my little gardn, but I like to see red in other peoples gardens!

Great red post! And very coincidental with my day since I found a lovely red nemesia hanging basket at the grocery store. Just what I needed to add to my "hot colors" pots. Yay for red!

Lovely reds! I adore those poppies with the ghostly purple soot centers. :)

How is the willow tree doing, by the way?

Your poppy is exquisite and the most beautiful flower given to earth.
