More Reds

After writing about my red quilt the other day, I started thinking again about the colour red.
I went round the house looking for red things, and put together this grouping.
I once read somewhere that as recently as Tudor times, there were no specific words for the colours we know as pink and orange, as these were perceived to be shades of red. It was this that first got me thinking about red in a different way, and about the wide range of shades and intensities of red.
