Red

It is dark outside and it’s raining. I think it’s the same over much of the country. I am sitting at a desk in my studio staring out in to the greyness, waiting for the rain to subside so I can walk up to the allotment. Outside on the window sill is a bright red geranium (pelagonium) protected from the worst of the frost by an absence of double glazing.

The only other colour to be seen in the encompassing gloom is the red of a hybrid tea rose shrouded in billowing clouds from next doors gas boiler. I thank them both for brightening up the day.
