Seeing Red...

I couldn't help seeing red wherever my eyes landed this morning...
but of the good kind

the ackee tree is putting out it's red fruit

the red and yellow hibiscus flowers thrilled me with their frilly petals

the red hibiscus is looking good, too

and our young roo is giving the red hibiscus, the "good looks" competition

the banana flower is showing off it's red

and the red sorrel seeds are in the process of drying for the next season

the tomato patch is growing lots of red

and I do believe, we will have a tomato feast today

the pea tree is promising plenty peas with their red beginnings

the crotons along the fence look rather elegant in their red and black leaves

the white ginger lillies are sprouting blooms below the rock garden

the "pride of barbados" flamboyant flowers are beckoning the hummingbirds

the red ixora flowers are still going strong

Mimi and Ms. Roja are keeping their red feathers in fine form indeed

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord:
though your sins be as scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they be red like crimson,
they shall be as wool.
Isaiah 1:18

May your day or night be graced in God's mercy.


  1. A lovely post. You are a wonderful photographer, with an eye for God's beauty.

  2. I only like akee raw, and it's dangerous to eat them raw. So I don't eat them.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous photos. The Banana tree flower looks like a Christmas bow!
    The beauty of it all made my day.
