Red Hot Garden Color
It's late August and the garden is aglow with brilliant red cardinal flower. The hummingbirds are delighted zipping happily from one flower to another. Even with so much to do in the garden, it's impossible not to take time out to watch them enjoy sipping nectar from these deep-throated red flowers.
The color in the photos is close to the actual color of the flowers. The pictures were taken in the light of morning. There is something about morning light that intensifies the color red. The cardinal flower looks its best in the morning light.
