As mentioned on November 25th, December Photo A Day starts with Day One's subject matter being the color red. Red is a bold, expressive color and perfect for the month of December when much of the country's landscape is lifeless and drab. The photo(s) I chose to post are one I took of a red gladiolus in my backyard this past spring and one I took of a red gerbera daisy growing in a flower pot at my niece's house in Belfast, Maine. There I go again breaking the rules by posting two photos and neither were pictures I took today. Now, that's the way I like to start a challenge...my way! Well, at least this one I started in the right order.
