Mosaic Monday - Flowers Are Red.

Flowers are Red
Click here for a beautiful, moving poem
about red flowers.
Joining Mary at the little red house
for
Mosaic Monday.
Wishing you all a wonderful week!

P.S.
Blondie has asked me what the names of the flowers are,
so...........
the top two pix are of a red rhododendron that I rescued from the reduced (dying plants!) section at the garden centre a few years ago, the bottom right is a pieris plant also from the garden centre, (full price!) and the bottom left is a flowering quince bush that was here in the garden when we bought the house.

  8. What gorgeous red flowers. Those rhodos must be stunning when fully in bloom. Ours are barely starting to swell. It's been so very cold here.

  11. I love the pieris - am always searching for just the right pink one - I have several, but none is quite pink enough.
