“Red”, I write “is the color of life. It’s blood, passion, rage.. Red is the color of love. Beating hearts and hungry lips. Roses, Valentines, cherries.” ―

This weeks photo challenge on Susan and my alternative website “Weekly Prompts” celebrates the color red. It is a passionate and intense shade and during the month of February is intrinsically linked to St Valentine’s Day (February 14) and the celebration of loving and friendship.
Valentine’s Day is a few weeks away and many retailers have already stocked their shelves with boxes of heart-shaped chocolates, chocolate kisses, teddy bears and of course Godiva chocolate.
The sweets are yummy and all have become a traditional part of that special day.
The sale of Valentine’s Day cards and red roses are also a highlight of the day. It’s funny that one dozen long stem roses one week before the big day costs 50 per cent less than when purchased on the day itself.
I imagine the sale of Victoria Secret lingerie also experiences a sales spurt this time of the year.
Oh well it is a special day of the year when warmth and love and friendship are exemplified despite the cold and the snow piling up outside. – gc
