Ruby Tuesday



So here we are, our first Ruby Tuesday in April. Traveling around the neighborhood a lot of flowers are blossoming. These below were quite unusual but they were RED so I took photos.

These RED flowers looked like roses. But roses don't blossom in April. do they? I think they are a special kind of rose. Does anyone know its name?

Since this is the Ruby Tuesday before Passover and Easter I'd like to wish all my friends who are celebrating:

Oh I envy your beautiful red flowers! I am no sure though what kind of roses...or if they are roses, im sure thought they are pretty :)

Robin said...

Those are unusual, and very lovely.

Thanks for the Passover good wishes, and a very happy Easter to you too.

Here's my entry this week - can someone stick it on the linkie for me if you get it up please? It's late and I have to head up to bed - I've got a ton of Passover seder cooking to do tomorrow (who me, panic?)!

I have also posted red flowers.
Thanks for the Pesach greetings!

Ralph said...

Gorgeous flowers. I would enjoy viewing a bed of fauna in the front yard...the early April blooms sing Spring!

No linky yet, but here's mine:

Is that a camelia in the second shot? Nice one! But I really love the whatever-they-are's in the top photo.

Sicne Mr. Linky's apparently AWOL, I'll just do what everybody else is doing Ruby Tuesday #33: I Don't Know What It Is Either Redux

Now if you'll excuse me, I have some friends jumping off a bridge I need to catch up with.

I can't see Mr Linky either. Here is my link:

Thanks for the flowers, Mary, they kind of illuminate our grey weather. Spring is late, here.
I would say that your second flowers are camellia. But I'm not a speciallist.
Happy Ruby Tuesday, Mary.

Felisol said...

Dear teach Mary,
Some beauties you've gathered today.
I can't believe that roses are blossoming in April, New York.
I think India and Australia have roses this time of the year.
Happy paaske. That is Norwegian for Easter and Pesach.
From Felisol

Those are pretty flowers!

Leora said...

Thank you for the good wishes, Mary.

Love this season, with its flowers! I see a lot of yellows, pinks and purples, but not so many reds yet. I also posted a flower.

Carletta said...

Hi Mary,
Love those first vibrant red flowers! I think Mojo might just be right about the second ones.

I posted the red buds of Verbena. Must be a flower week. :)

Happy Easter and Passover to everyone!

MyMaracas said...

Pretty flowers, but I'm not sure what they are. I hope you brought some home to enjoy.

Wishing you a Happy Easter too.

Terri said...

Beautiful flowers, Mary. We don't see much red until later in the season.

I have an idea for a photo meme, come take a look and see what you think:

Snowbird said...

Beautiful flowers. Our Bougainvillea down here is just amazing this year. Happy Easter to you too.

Tink *~*~* said...

Camellias? Ironically, a show on HGTV last night had the landscaper buying them, and that looks like them. The guys specifically stated that they are used in place of roses where roses won't grow due to too much shade.

What are the first flowers? They are yummy!

napaboaniya said...

Very sweet looking roses you've got!
Happy Easter to you this weekend Mary! :-)

Dora said...

The flowers in the 2nd pic look like those "flowers" found on cakes! ;)

Happy RT!

Entry for this week: my favourite food!

Pagan Sphinx said...

Oh, glorious flowers! Only my crocus are in bloom. Still waiting for the daffies and then the two-lips. :-)

It was only 43 and rainy all day today. Ugh.

judi said...

yep, I vote with Mojo. They are boldly beautiful!! Happy holidays to you also!

spiCes said...

i am not really versed when it comes to blooms sorry, but they are pretty unusual and pretty:)

EastCoastLife said...

They look like roses to me. Here in Singapore, roses blooms all year round.

It's my mother-in-law's 92nd birthday. Yes.... 92 years old! My father-in-law is 95. :)

In Chinese culture, the birthday girl /boy has red eggs and a bowl of Longevity noodles on their birthday.

Unfortunately, we're having another touch of winter here and it's too cold to plant anything.

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

I love the first shot! The red is so vivid!! It screams sprintime.

Lin said...

Beautiful flowers! Not sure what that flower is, but definately not a rose.

bj said...

Lovely red flowers! How delightful Spring is bursting out all over ;--)

Happy Passover and Easter to YOU and yours too.
Hugs and blessings,

Raven said...

So pretty! It always amazes me the difference that a mere two hours makes. You seem so much more fully into Spring than we are here. Hope you have a wonderful holiday.

Melli said...

We've done it again, Mary! You're flowers are GORGEOUS! I love those first tulips!

NicoleB said...

Those roses are called "Pfingstrosen" in German, if I'm not totally wrong.
They are not really roses though.

Lovely and beautiful though :)!
