Where there’s red……….there’s fire

On my walk around Wilsonville yesterday, a 5.25 mile loop, I thought I’d see how many things I could find that were red. Just carrying my little point and shoot camera and snapping away.
Nature uses red. Humans use red. Red is used on signs to catch our attention to warn us or to make us notice something. We use red to denote warmth and fire. People wear red to show confidence and to attract attention. It’s no wonder that for Valentine’s Day the symbol is a red heart and lovers give red roses.
Look around you. Notice the colors you are attracted to and ask why?
Enjoy this Valentine’s weekend.
