ABC WEDNESDAY--"K" is for "kermes"



"Kermes," in case you didn't know as I didn't before I looked up 'unusual words beginning with K,' is a brilliant red color or a red color derived from insects.

Not sure if any insects contributed to this eye-catching red on Belgrade's walking street, but the color brightened up my day.

See other Ks on Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC WEDNESDAY.
