Seeing Autumn Reds

We suffered a long, hot, dry summer here in Northeast Texas. I'm talking something like 65 days of over 100 degree temperatures. Let me expound on that:  most days reached as high as 110, some even higher! It was not uncommon to see temperatures in the nineties before nine in the morning and as late as nine o'clock at night.

And no rain. 

Hot, dry, dead.

We will not be enjoying much of a traditional 
orange, red, and golden autumn.

I went out this morning in search of "red" and was delighted to find these morsels, a smattering of color that survived the scorching drought, making these photos even more of a treat for the eyes.

I love your red berries!

Haha, I know where that first one was! Bc the other day Alan said, "I'm gonna go pick that red flower!" Then when he got there I think he was disappointed to discover that it was a leaf.
Love your textures. :)

I love the shadows in the first red berries.

I love the second photo! When I was browsing through the RED thumbnails in the linky, yours jumped right out at me. :)

I love how natural the pictures look with the textures. Great photos! Red is my favorite color so I was really drawn to these pictures.

Beautiful reds. I'm glad you could find beauty in a barren land.

Hi Lisa. See that comment from Regina? That was really me. My friend visited yesterday and used my iPad but didn't sign out and I never noticed until this morning. Sorry!
