A Reflection on the Colour Red...

What does the colour red mean to you? Do you realize that the pure colour red does not appear very often in nature? I mean the colour code of #FF0000. This is the purest red, kind of tomato red, china red or vermilion, although the latter again have a slight touch of yellow, rather towards orange but without the slightest addition of blue.

Hi Kelly, I absolutely adore this colour too - really one of my favourite colours. I am dreaming of a rocking chair in this colour or in purple, all covered with velvet of course and bed linen and covers in this red!!!
