RED...Better Late Than Never...?

Last week was red week for The Summer of Color, but I took an involuntary blog break. 
 A nasty bug got me, then my hubby, and now that things are just getting back to "normal",  I'm trying to get caught up.  I didn't get to finish my red piece of art, but I figured since it's  already late I'll just find some red photos to post.   
Any excuse to dig through my stash :-)

The dandelion photo was taken using my son's wagon as the backdrop.

This photo above was taken when we were on our honeymoon in Paris in 2000.  I love the French waiter (who kinda reminds me of Kramer from Sienfeld) in the right foreground.

This one above was taken recently in Pasadena.  I'm not sure why the tree was decorated, but I thought it was fun.  Love the red umbrellas in the background.

And of course I have to throw in a Hipstamatic app photo.

I know I could've just skipped red but I was so excited about it because it's such a great color.  Hope you don't mind.

So now I need to whip up something with purple for this week's Summer of Color.  I hope to make some time soon to get something together for that before the week is up.  
See you then.

Sorry to read about the bugs ... Hope you're both feeling well by now! Just returned from a 3 weeks trip to the UK, and I had fun reading your blog again. First of all, I desperately need an iPhone!!! Love those Hipstamatic photos ;-) And second, your experimenting with plaster looks really cool, hope to see more of that!

Hope your feeling better. I love the simplicity of the dandelion on the wagon.
