Ruby (Red) Tuesday



These petunias were sold for Memorial Day and I've been watering them and keeping them at my doorway since then. They're looking pretty good, don't you think?



But take a look at this house and it's decorations that are not just for Memorial Day or Independence Day:



Wow! A symphony in RED

Geraldine asked me if I'd make available the Ruby Tuesday icon and badge for anyone who wants to use them. They are available for anyone and here's how you get them:

Right click on either one and left click on "Save image as..." Make sure you're saving to your desktop or to the place you usually save photos, then click "Save." Then upload the icon and badge to your Ruby Tuesday post.



This Ruby Tuesday badge was made for me by Elaine of Napaboaniya APAD

Please try to visit others who participate in Ruby Tuesday. You know how we all enjoy visits to our blogs. :)

Oh and don't forget to sign Mr. Linky...

I love the red, white, and blue petunias. I bought a couple of pots last year which were red, white, and blue, and had the r,w,and b petunias in them. Gorgeous.

I like the red and white colors of the house. I posted some red, white and blue (purple actually) Petunias on the Fourth.

Raven said...

I love the petunias! They are so healthy and pretty and I think it's cool that they are red white and blue. Afraid my Ruby Tuesday is not so good today.

Suzie said...

Youre doing a great job with those flowers I always seem to kill mine.

For The People said...

I love that house, even the car fits in!

Bond said...

I "Rubi-sized" a picture for you

Laura@Storytellin' Mama said...

The petunias are beautiful and darling house!!

Mo said...

It's amazing what they've done with petunia breeding over the years. I can remember growing up my grandfather wanted red/white/blue flower beds, and he got red & white petunias - back then there just wasn't a blue one available. So he got this fuzzy little blue thing that by the 4th of July was overpowered by the white and red petunias! He would so love your red, white, and blue petunias!

Leora said...

I love these Mr. Linky "games". Makes sharing fun. Thanks for doing Ruby Tuesday.

Geraldine said...

Wow, this is one popular place Mary! Great idea for a prompt, I just love it. I hope you are all hungry...I'm cookin' over at MPP!

Askew To You said...

The petunias look lovely. Pretty cool to have a car that matches the garage door. :D

Geraldine said...

PS: Forgot to mention, LOVED your flower pic, what a great idea! And the house is patriotic indeed. I love Old Glory, such a beautiful flag.
