I wandered through the produce section, looking for my usual items, bananas, lettuce, an onion, etc., but as I passed the display of pears, I spotted a beautiful Crimson pear. I had to pick it up just to admire the rich red color. I put it back in the display.
Further along in the fruit area, I saw the Gala apples and some were the same rich crimson color as the Crimson pear. So beautiful!
I went back to the pear display and picked selected one Crimson pear for my cart. Then I went back to the Gala apples and chose one that was the same deep red. While I was in the groove, I picked up jumbo pomegranate for Goodnight . . . same red.
The original reason I went to that market was because were selling the red dogwood branches that I like to use in my outdoor holiday decorations. I planned the red dogwood, but the crimson fruits were a happy coincidence.
