"This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affectations glow and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn."

Colours - Red

The third in my *Colours* Series....  too late for Christmas, too early for Valentines.....but, last week, as I ventured out.....wounded knee improving....I encountered so many lovely *Red* sightings....  this had to be the theme for my next post!  Oooh...I hope you enjoy them!

 Early Strawberries.....  the unusually warm weather has caused many trees to be *confused*...and begin to bloom!

An *Oh-so-red* Irish Setter!  (Isn't he gorgeous!)

I came across this in the middle of the Presidio....  hmmmm..wonder how it got there...could be an interesting story!  A-ha-ha!

 Red..that belongs in the Presidio.....


The *Red* Victorian - a great place to see old, rare movies...sadly, it just closed....


♥ *Red* Robin


  1. Oh I'm laughing about the poison oak; sometime when we are chatting, I'll have to tell you as I cannot post it here! (Presidio, kids....funny!)
    Love all the reds; makes my *snow white* a little more tolerable here.


  2. wow - you are so observant! I like this idea of looking for colors or for themes and doing pictures. would have loved to see an old film in that Red Victorian!

  3. Your color series are so fun Robin! Love that heart on the door and the red building the poison oak sign, well okay, love all your reds.

  4. Wow so much red still there!!!!
    Love this post! Red and all its shades are one of my favorites. In fact left of the spectrum til indigo.
    Lovely post Mrs Red Robin!

  5. Oh yes and that heart on the door!!!! I want one!

  6. so fun the way you tour the city looking for a color. the red victorian is amazing. I feel like i have taken a fun and refreshing walk with you up and down the streets. thank you

  7. Very cheery shots. Is it Spring already?

  8. I love red! It's full of energy and uplifting. Mucho gracias!

  9. i like this series, red robin! that wreath of roses on the door is sumptuous......and so nice of the city to warn folks of the poison ivy!

    probably my favorite is the very elegant red setter - what a handsome creature!

    sendinghugs for a lovely week,


  10. great shots you've captured along your "hobbled" walk! You are observant with the eye of an artiste!

    I need to give you a call soon. perhaps after work tonight? I'm on my way out the door now but wanted to visit you before I left.

    Miss you!

  11. what a fabulous idea,this color series. i like that you've taken good liberties with the tones of red. i can imagine the fun of looking: 'i spy with my little eye!'

    what color's next? :^)


  12. A lovely tour - thank you! I love the botanical gardens here in Seattle. It's like leaving the country sometimes - the variety of plants and ecosystems, all in one space!
