Red Ruffles and Dew Drops

Red ruffly zinnia flower with dew drops.
A crimson flower opens to the early morning light, sparkling with morning dew like a Hollywood starlet wearing a gown of rhinestones and red satin at a movie premier. She is a flashy flower standing out in a crowd of tiny wildflowers in soft pastel hues on my summer deck. And like most ingenues her time is brief. As my demure houseplants come in for the winter she is left looking more and more ragged to face the first frost alone. But when she was in her prime she was a show stopper!

I hope you enjoy my "Red Ruffles and Dew Drops" photo and check back with me next week. I will be out of my Colorado photography studio for a week and am headed for Las Vegas. It is once again the week of our anniversary and we are off for some fun and relaxation. See you next week!
