Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination

This was an easy Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for me:

When I think of Light….

When I think of Illumination…

There’s only one thing I immediately think of…

That bright red “Hot Doughnuts Now” sign signaling that warm, melt-in-your-mouth, heavenly goodness is waiting fresh off the glazing racks at Krispy Kreme.  I dropped by just this past Sunday and was so happy that to see that welcoming sign.

The light in my soul after having a taste of a simple glazed doughnut was just as bright as that sign, I assure you.

Red Flower Greetings: An Ode to Southern Hospitality

Red is my favorite color.  The vibrancy, warmth and energy is irresistible.  That may have something to do with my being an Aries as well (think: fire sign, ruled by Mars, the red planet).

While walking down a local street, I came across these energetic potted red flowers sitting in front of slightly worn, painted wooden steps leading to a charming Southern porch.  How inviting they were in front of this quaint country home, as if to say, “come on up, rest your feet and have a cool glass of lemonade.”  Just like good ol’ Southern hospitality – being warm and welcoming to unknown visitors.

I didn’t quite stop and smell the flowers, but it sure was nice to stop and smile at them, returning their kind greeting.
