Charles Rennie Mackintosh Red — Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Red

Hi all 😁 Here is my entry for CFFC: Red.

My wife and I visited the House for an Art Lover yesterday. The house was designed by Mackintosh and features many of his artistic touches. What struck me on our way round was that the predominant accent colour used was red (usually in the form of a rose) and so, I thought some pics from the house would suit this challenge.

So, here we go for a quick tour of red 😁

Even More Flowers In Cumbernauld

I think I need to start wearing blinkers when out and about in Cumbernauld (only kidding – I would miss all there was to see) as all my walks take far longer than intended. I was out for a bimble with my wife to Cumbernauld House Park, specifically to get some photos of an info board within the park for a blog I was preparing, and some pictures of all the rhododendrums. On the way there, and back, I kept on stopping to photo the various flowers I came across. I was going to say that this was much to my wife’s annoyance, but she’s as bad as me; if I hadn’t spotted something, I was soon alerted by “ooh pretty”.

This is my third post about Flowers in Cumbernauld: Flowers In Cumbernauld and More Flowers in Cumbernauld being the previous two. I am sure that there will be more posts to come as there seem to be colourful surprises each time I step outside the front door.

The following four photos are probably my favourites of the day. A resident living in a house that backs on to a local lane has planted a rose next to the path so that anyone passing by can enjoy it — thank you whomever you are for brightening all our lives with this simple act.
