Potpourri of Reds

The weather here in Missouri's wine country has been stormy with high winds, some tornadoes, and lots of rain for several weeks now. So photo opts have been scarce. As a result, I am dipping into the archives this week to share a potpourri of red shots taken over the last year.

This shot was taken through the front window of my sisters house on our visit last spring. The red SUV parked in front belonged to us. We have since traded it for a red truck to haul our camper.

On that same trip we attended a Girl Scout "Fly-UP " ceremony for one of my nieces. It was held in the hall of a local Protestant church. This stack of red books was on a cabinet in the corner of the room. The only word on the spine is "Worship."

I snapped this old El-Camino parked in the drive of a local Bed and Breakfast

While attending the craft fair hosted by our downtown merchants association last fall I snapped this photo at the booth of a gentleman who makes brooms the same way they did back in the eighteenth century.
This is the broom we purchased to keep in our vehicle.

I am linking this post to Ruby Tuesday and Rednesday.

Mary at "Work of the Poet" hosts Ruby Tuesday. Rednesday is a Wednesday meme hosted by Sue at "It's a Very Cherry World." Both memes are dedicated to the color red. To join the fun or just check out what Red others are excited to share visit Mary and her friends at Ruby Tuesdayand Sue and her friends from Rednesday


  1. Those brooms are so cool. Love the colours.

  2. Looks like you keep your eyes open for red wherever you go!


    The seeker of ruby and red
    Will not let green go to her head;
    Instead she will seek
    Her senses to pique
    With cherry and crimson instead.

Thank you for stopping by my site. Without your visits there would be no incentive to continue posting. So, having you here and reading your comments is the highlight of my day.

I regret that time does not always allow me to return visits to everyone who stops by, but, I will certainly do my best to get to everyone. I will definitely answer any questions you leave me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
