As I strolled around Denver, Colorado, last week, I saw quite a bit of the color red. In my last post I showed all the beautiful red flowers I saw in Alamo Placita Park. I liked the idea of the red rentable bicycles you see in the photo above, that are called Denver B Cycles. Denver B-cycle is the first large-scale municipal bike sharing system in the United States. They are located in dozens of special bike stations (B-stations) in the downtown neighborhood, as well as the Cherry Creek and Denver University neighborhoods. For a modest charge, Denver B-cycle members can pick up one of the red bikes at any B-station and when finished riding they can drop it off at any B-station. It is a very healthy and environmentally friendly way to travel.
This beautiful red brick Capital Hill Mansion Bed and Breakfast is a national historically registered 1891 Romanesque Mansion located in the Capitol Hill Historic neighborhood of downtown Denver. Built by Jeffery and Mary Keating, the Keating Mansion was one of the last Historic Homes of Denver built before the silver crash of 1893.
This former red brick church is now turned into a 2.3 million dollar luxury home. You can see a slide show of the house interior on this link.

My favorite reds of all were my two grandsons who were wearing red!
It was so much fun to see the boys again so soon, and I gave them lots of hugs, kisses and cuddles!
