Let's just say this is red

.
I know, I know, it's actually much closer to pink (ok, it is in fact pink), but I'm getting sick and haven't had much time for shooting lately and pink is basically just a lighter version of red anyway. Work with me here.

It is red. Bright pink = red + some white + hint of blue. It's stunning. You are doing such beautiful florals!

Let's just say that it's beautiful and not quibble over color!

Ralph said...

I've taken plenty of liberties on RT, but based on red, even minimally, is what is needed. And it is a beautiful flower, too!

toby said...

Absolutely gorgeous! Feel better soon!

Jientje said...

A redder shade of pink? Or a pinker shade of red? You name it. You've got it? Why not!

Happy holidays Robin!

Dianne said...

you really are too hard on yourself

it's way darker than pink which makes it red
and who cares
it's beautiful
your composition is wonderful

feel better

Diane AZ said...

Absolutely gorgeous bloom. The red lines are so elegant. Feel better soon. :)

Patti said...

I'm working with you here. ;-)

The flower is gorgeous. That's fine that it's pink - it's in the red family. Close enough for Ruby Tuesday ~

I do hope you feel better soon.

I'm sorry you're getting sick and hope you get the rest you need to stave off anything serious. Vitamin C, Zicam, and lots of water work best for me. Happy Ruby Tuesday ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Robin, I have to say that pink is a very light hue of red. :o)
Wishing you and your family the happiest of holidays.

Besides, you have a very red KitchenAid mixer in your blog header.
