Seeing Red

We’re fortunate here in North Carolina to see pops of color even in winter. Earlier this week, I searched for scenes containing the color red in celebration of Valentine’s Day. Here’s a collection of my favorite photos, all taken at the delightful Duke Gardens.

Enjoy, and Happy Valentine’s Day.
