Mother nature is the 'Lady in Red' just now. She is swirling her gypsy skirts of the richest red velvet and spreading colour all around.
Is this the red of anger? Oh no, this lady wears her reds for ripening,
from deep purply reds, to bright orangy hues, all are reds in various stages of red readiness.
Leaves going from green to gold to stunning crimson, they are ready to fall and the tree move on to the next stage of life.
Berries, berries everywhere. Fruits for animals and humans alike, the very stuff of life.
From the gentle flowering rose of summer, the strength of the rosehip bursts through, the seeds for the future encased in royal red.
I feel real joy in red, the coming together of months of work in nature's body, within her self.
This is rampant red, now after all her simmering of summer she is ready, she is RED!* * *These are all photos I have taken recently on my run round the lanes here. I seem to spend more time stopping and snapping than pounding the road. Just shows I am not a complete stressed out nutter all the time. It is just sometimes that i really see red!!
