Give me juicy autumnal fruit, ripe and red from the orchard. – Walt Whitman
”No matter what the season, this color is emotional, fiery, and sensual. It is hopeful and passionate.” The description unmistakably belongs to the colour Red. This week Patti invites us to a photo scavenger hunt to find things red. Check out her special offerings!
This is what I found… starting with a tiny dot… growing into more and more of… Red.
And as Christian Dior said – There is certainly a red for everyone
O my Luve is like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June;
O my Luve is like the melody
That’s sweetly played in tune.
Through the rear window of an old camper – despite the jumble and reflections, your eyes go for the red spots and the roses. You can’t go wrong with red roses, ever. Trust the poets – and your heart.
Finally, even though a bit faded – a phone shot of my garden and Flammentanz roses.

Nice. I’m a fan of roses and they look stunning on your wall. I’m a little alarmed by the jumble of wiring though. It doesn’t look entirely safe.
I don’t think it was…entirely safe either. Much of that kind in Tbilisi. Happy you love roses too!
Great collection!! That pomegranate looks like it’s bursting with flavor!
Glad you enjoyed them – and yes – what a pomegranate! Just had to go for it!
Here at last is mine, Ann Christine: https://suejudd.com/2020/01/31/lens-artists-photo-challenge-81-find-something-red/
Thank you, Sue!
Beautiful reds – and I agree, you can’t go wrong with roses!

Love the pomegranites and your beautiful red roses!!
Thank you, Sylvia! The roses were really abundant that year.
Nice shots! I’ve never seen a pomegranate so juicy before.
Neither have I – just had to photograph it!
Great reds all. Well done.
Appreciate your positive comment, John!
Lovely shots of red but the pomegranate takes the so-called cake! Glad I stumbled along and on your post!
Thank you – stumbling is sometimes not that bad!
It’s refreshing when you stumble across something. I’m not into photos that much anymore. But I thought I might as well start using or taking photos again in a challenge.
That first image is particularly striking. You just want to stretch out and take one:)
Haha, yes – it is obviously number one in the gallery from my guests!
I also take the fruits. They look so inviting.
Beautiful reds, A-C. I especially love that juicy red pomegranate! Have a wonderful week. I hope all’s well.
Hi Patti, that piece of fruit/berry really caught on! I believe it is number one right now. And after that shot…I walked on, and so regretted not buying one.
The fruit has ”grown” on me. I didn’t like the taste at first, but now I do.
Sometimes it works like that…!
Hi Leya – Your pomegranite photo is so succulent and glistening that I can almost taste it! An outstanding capture.
Here’s my submission with something red. I am ‘seeing red’ because WP mangled my link but it seems to work ok.
Haha, well, WP can do the strangest things…thank you!

Great reds A-C 🙂 love your roses. A good idea to have a special guest from time to time
Yes, thank you, Brian. Exciting guest! I hope you are getting along better now. We don’t here much from Australia on the news, not since we heard of heavy rains.
All is going well A-C thanks. Yes there will be news of floods now no doubt. There are still some fires raging in the southern part of Aust.
I absolutely love the roses from your garden!
Ah, happy to share them with you!
Those Pomegranates! Beautiful
Thanks Sandy! Delicious fruits!
Thank you, Sheree! Happy to share them!
All beautiful – and creative and works of art, but oh, how beautiful your garden roses are – even if faded! 🙂
Oh, thank you – now you made me long for spring and summer! And flowers…
I walk that path right beside you!!! Seed catalogs arrive and spring yearnings stir! 🙂
♥♥♥ The birds are singing here all day now…TWO months too early. We had no winter this year. This is the first time in my life I haven’t seen snow in December/January.
We started with snow and cold temps late fall but birds singing here and drab brown ground and vegetation now. Hoping we get our spring wet blizzards for moisture though they are hard on the trees
A-C, you always get it right. That top image …. fantastic. And I love the Champagne gifts box, that you must have met at an airport *smile And those fantastic roses in your garden, just wonderful. A wonderful gallery. See you over at my place next week. And I total agree with M Dior.
Thank you for a lovely comment – always supportive! CPH boxes? Don’t remember. I sent you an sms!
Yes, I have sent you the link … – sent to Tina last week, but I have made changes. On mail to you! Hope you like it. *smile –
Ooooo, must have a look!
Very appropriate for Burns Day, Ann Christine 🙂 🙂 Gorgeous rose shots and I never saw redder pomegranate seeds! Curious to see what Vivi gets up to next week! 🙂
Yes, I intended to post it in time, but was some hours late for the 25… We don’t know yet about Vivis post – exciting!
That pomegranate shot is stunning!
Glad you liked it, Paulie! I regretted not buying some before I walked on along the street…
The pomegranate looks scrumptious! Great choices for the challenge.
Thank you very much! I loved it the way it was cut open – to be eaten by eyes!
So fun. And delicious pomegranates.
Thank you for commenting!
Beautiful red selections, AC. Amazing shot of the pomegranates, love it!!
Your garden is just spectacular!!! And that juicy pomegranate shot makes me want to go buy one – now! We started putting them in salads – so good!
Thanks Pam, I love them in salads too. And as I make hamburgers quite often, a tip is to put them in there as well – delicious!
Ohhh, good idea! We’ll try that!
Your opening image is simply amazing Ann-Christine – a still life in which the fruit looks like you could eat it right off the page! Lovely touches of red this week – and oh la la those flowers! I am so envious of anyone who can make a garden thrive. I am definitely not among them.
Tasty, aren’t they, Tina? Thank you! And I try to make the garden work, but roses don’t need much attention- which suits me perfectly!
The pomegranates are stunning, as are your Flammentantz roses!
Sue, thank you – were the roses flowering when you were here? They must have been?
Yes, they were, near a blue window?
Think that is where we dined – at my friends house.
Yes, I’m recalling that now, and you are, of course, absolutely right!
Wow! Your Flammentanz roses look stunning, Leya!!! And the pomegranates look extremely tempting! Just so beautiful – and healthy! 😀 Love the Robert Burns poem!
Thank you, Sarah – I love my roses, but seldom photograph them. And I was one day late for the Burns celebration!
