"Artists can color the sky red because they know it's blue. Those of us who aren't artists must color things the way they really are or people might think we're stupid." ~ Jules Feiffer
The tulips are almost gone for the year; like the daffodil, they wither and fade quickly. Soon the red lily will bloom, at least I hope so. We have planted a grouping of reds next to the whites this year.

Today I purchased three plants; red grape tomatoes, red bell pepper (I double checked to make sure it wasn't hot pepper...fool me once and never again!), and a red tomato named "Goliath". I hope this refers to the size of the tomato and not the plant. Then there are the roses... two bushes, both are loaded with buds that will soon burst forth in brilliant soft red petals. And soon Dad will fill the planters with red begonias, mixed with white.
