I give up! I think I'll change the name of Rednesday to "SnowDay"! For the third week in a row, we're having a major snow storm on a Wednesday; well, this week it's a two-day storm on Tuesday and Wednesday. What did we ever do before computers!
Methinks this guy won't even bother to come out of his burrow this year!
I'm all cozied up to my virtual fireplace (which is my Africam live cams, where it's a toasty 86F/30C right now!), ready to show you my reds ~
Mister got me this cute little Chinese teapot a few weeks back at the thrift shop. It's glowing with red spots (not pink, mind you!).
He picked up this very dirt-embedded crazed pitcher last year. I don't think I've shown it yet. No markings, but it reminds me of some Homer Laughlin ones I've seen. The container to the right is the shape of one of those refrigerator dishes, and it holds my oatmeal and Cream of Wheat packets.
Lots of red here ~ coleus and sweet potato vine cuttings that I've been too lazy to pot up. Also a few plants that I'm trying to have hang on until Spring (if it ever gets here!). This is the side of my pantry shelves that's about 3 feet/1 meter from the South-facing back door.
Last photo ~ two metal sifters. The one on the left, a Bromwell, has a red knob. The smaller one on the right Mister picked up at a thrift store - they were going to throw it out! So he got it free! I love the shabby paint and the advertising.
