Amaranth, a love {color} story.

Amaranth in bloom

Every year at this time, when I'm bicycling around my neighborhood, I see it--like a blood-red bolt of lightning--amaranth! The smart people who plant it in their gardens {I forget every year} are rewarded each October by the most luscious, vivid magenta plumage amid the nodding stalks and drooping leaves of autumn. What a lovely last hurrah of the season. I decided to dig into my closet for a fast fix of that gorgeous color and am dressed in honor of amaranth today. I may look a bit funny, but I feel flowerlike.
