I was excited when I heard scarlet was an upcoming color. Maybe I was more excited because I love the name Scarlet. My favorite movie is Gone with the Wind and if I were to have a daughter, I would have considered Scarlet as a top runner in the “Name the Baby” contest. Not that anyone in my family would have agreed to it, but it is still a favorite.
Anyway....this past weekend, I went to the Dallas Arboretum and was able to see the first flowers of spring! It was a cool place and I imagine it will be even more beautiful in the coming weeks as everything starts to bloom. I got some great shots of flowers, mostly tulips. There were all colors, but these looked pretty darn close to our scarlet. We colored on a piece of paper and took it with us for comparison!
(I would also like to say that this is the first time I have really taken photographs of flowers so it was an all new experience. This challenge has taken me out of the box and I love it! I hope it is getting you to step out of your box too.)
I am thoroughly enjoying every single one of your plum posts! It is getting harder and harder to pick a favorite each week!
