Ruby Tuesday


These photos are from the backyard of our cousin's house. She had a little gathering last week and held it outside. As I was taking the photos I was thinking that these are probably the last photos of summer I'll be taking til next year. Isn't it great she loves the color RED?

These are her coleus plants.

She loves RED so much she had her walkway painted RED!

Don't forget to sign in to Mr. Linky and to visit each other during the week.

Oh, and if you have some photos of trees that are changing color for Autumn (with some RED in 'em, of course.) feel free to post them!

Hi Mary! I love that post box! And I saw that plant in the park last weekend and never thought of that:) Love the pathway!

Mine is posted HERE. Happy RT!~

Jim said...

Hi Mary, these are very pretty. How about that red sidewalk. I have one of those too, but had something better for today.
I called my sidewalk the 'red brick road'. It was of red paver bricks made chiefly for golf carts. Of course Adi will traverse that red road.

And the red mail box is great too!

Those are truly cool photos -- I really love the Coleus. I have another two-fer this week (gotta love multi-tasking). I've combined R/T with this week's Thematic Photographic ("Angles").
And here it is

I always love Coleus plants and have some in our window box. Red makes creates a nice warmth around a home. And yes, I have RED leaves!

Mary, I love all the red. The sidewalk, postbox, and the plants.
What a great Ruby Tuesday posting.

Felisol said...

Dear teach Mary,
I cherish the vague autumn sentiment over your niece reportage.
Not the flaming red, but this hidden ones. Like the mailbox in within the green lilacs.
It's great to be here again.

Lots of red! Love the post box.

Greyscale Territory said...

Such beautiful ruby pics!

A most unusual mailbox!

I grew up with lots of coleus varieties in my Dad's garden in Sydney.

And I have not seen a red painted pathway since I was a child! And then it was very popular!

These are great Ruby shots Maryt. I really love the mailbox. Have a great Tuesday. I'm flying to LA from Seattle in a couple hours so I'll come around to ruby posts tomorrow.

Isn't it fun to go about looking for red? Thanks for hosting Ruby Tuesday. Your red photos are great. Take care.

Fantastic mailbox, love it.

Happy Tuesday! That postbox is so beautiful!

I love red walkways. They always remind me of playing outside Grandma's house. I posted my other Grandmother's kitchen for Ruby Tuesday this week. I feel so fortunate to still have both of my Grandmother's with us. The kids and I went Grandma vistiing this week. It was wonderful!

Have a great week!!!

Paz said...

Lots of great red stuff at her house. I like her walkway the best. Very cool!

Angela at mommy bytes said...

I'll try to get some red trees next week, things are definitely turning here in New England! I love the post box the best too.

Life's Lessons said...

Nice photos, Teacher Mary. Now I know Coleus which is locally known as Mayana here in the Philippines is also grown in your side of the planet.

My entry is up. Happy Tuesday!

~Just Me~ said...

OMG Love the post box. Great shots!!!

Ralph said...

The red walkway is my favorite - it seems to draw the green of the shrubs out. A worthy red to highlight!

SandyCarlson said...

Your cousin's yard is gorgeous!

Desert Songbird said...

I love the red walkway!

magiceye said...

super red themed garden indeed!

storyteller said...

I love all three photos ... especially the red sidewalk that reminds me of what our front porch and sidewalk looked like when I was a kid ;--)

Mine's up at Small Reflections, but I'll be visiting tomorrow afternoon when I return from class.
Hugs and blessings,

Judi~Gmj said...

I do love red. The red sidewalk is sooo cool.

Renie Burghardt said...

That red mail box is lovely! And I like the red sidewalk!

Tink *~*~* said...

Man, I dunno if I'm coming or going these days! I posted my post and then completely forgot to come here and sign in. I was practically in bed when I remembered. LOL I think this must be that "getting old" stuff we hear so much about when we're whippersnappers.

I like the red walkway. Neat idea.

Happy RT.

I also love red, but my letter box is green, lol !

I love the red sidewalk...

MumbaiiteAnu said...

Wow, beautiful mailbox, and I love the red sidewalk.
Lovely set of photos.
I'm becoming a red maniac and a monochrome maniac.
Red will soon replace deep pink as my favourite color, as I'm hunting for it everywhere :-)

Sara Chapman said...

Okay, I finally figured this out. I was linking to an old post instead of the current blog roll of Ruby Tuesday participants. No wonder no one visited me! I'm still learning this blog thing, that's for sure.

So I love this post. The red walkway is wonderful! Of course the coleus plants are great and the post box rocks. Red, red, red. Never too much red.

This time I posted an old fave that has some red neon in it. I figure there will be enough time for autumn leaves later, as we are enjoying a very unusual Indian summer here in Seattle and the red leaf thing really hasn't begun.

Your Pal Pinki said...

Just stopping in to see if we're over 100 participating in Ruby Tuesday! More than half way there and it's not even Tuesday on the West Coast yet! That was so cool last week!!!

Maddy said...

Love the post box but the Coleus always get my vote.
Cheers

Maddy said...

Oops - on the other blog!

CharmaineZoe said...

Great photos - love the mailbox!

Jientje said...

Wow, I sure would like a post box like that one, beautiful!
I find myself looking for new rubies each week too, but today I have some more shots from Portugal, the rooftops of Lissabon to be more precise! See you!

Sanni @ Life Through A Lens said...

Excellent choices as usual, Mary - but you really REALLY got me with the neat ruby-red postbox.

Red is my favorite color (who guessed it?!) and my postbox is rather boring, so this one would be perfect for me and the postman, who wouldn't fall asleep when delivering here.

splummer said...

Hi Mary,

Dear Ruby Tuesday Lady...I love that red sidewalk so much! I wonder if any of your Ruby Tuesday friends live in Prince Edward Island? I have always had a longing in my soul to see a real live picture of the winding red roads that they have.
My sister Betty went to PEI once but she was only interested in jumping into the ocean! She didn't get one picture at all of the roads!
Thanks for inventing Ruby Tuesday!
Love Terry

Digital Flower Pictures said...

Ruby Tuesday sure is growing. Mary I like all the pictures but the Coleus and the sidewalk are my favorites.

Melli said...

Oh Mary! I LOVE that mailbox! That is a treasure! The coleus are beautiful too... that is what I SHOULD plant across my whole yard! It's about the only thing that grows and I don't kill!

Thanks for the invite.

What a pretty garden. I love that sidewalk. Maybe I should try growing things again. One year I kept some nasturtiums alive for a whole season.

Lovely pinkish ruby colours this week!

Your cousin's yard is lovely!!

I was going to play today for the first time and then I remembered that I lost all of my photos when my computer crashed. Hopefully next week I'll have found the disks they are on and I can play along!

Pia K said...

Here's my (first ever) RT post, autumnal red from Sweden -
