I had in mind to go find some autumn leaves the color of scarlet but as I was driving the back road I decided I didn’t really know what color scarlet was. I was thinking a fire engine red but once I got home and looked it up on Wikipedia I learned another new color thanks to this week’s One Word Photo Challenge.
Scarlet is closer to orange than red on the color wheel. So I thought “surely there were leaves out there that color; but wait, right here; hanging in my ears, scarlet earrings!” My friend Kathy gave me these for Christmas last year. She made them, talented woman that she is. I would love to have a bracelet to go with them…hint! Hint!
