It has been said that
red is the ultimate cure for sadness.
Who doesn't feel their heart beat a little faster
when a bright red cardinal appears
vibrant against green leaves
or when holly berries appear?

A single red leaf on a spice bush easily lifts one's spirit

And a red leaf of the viburnum does much the same.

But nothing can match the brilliance
of red camelia flowers in the morning sun.
