Ruby Tuesday



Hi Everyone it's RUBY TUESDAY again!

On May 26, 2009 our RUBY TUESDAY meme will be ONE year old!


We've been posting "a little RED" or "lots of RED" for a WHOLE year. Doesn't time fly?

In celebration of our First Anniversary I will have a PRIZE for THREE people who participate in RUBY TUESDAY that week and sign Mr. Linky.

I will put all names in a hat and select three winners (Vinny, my husband, will hold the hat and I will pull out the names Photobucket)

You know I think you all deserve a prize for making Ruby Tuesday such a popular meme. I thank you all very much.

I got this idea from Tracy's (Hey Harriet) Shadow Shot Sunday meme celebration.


Photobucket

So for THIS week we'll continue as usual and next week I'll show you what the PRIZE will be for the winners.

Don't forget to sign in to Mr. Linky, leave a comment and visit other participants. You know we all love visitors!

Beautiful tulips Mary. I love tulips, but we don't see them here that often.

I'm not seeing Mr. Linkie, but here's mine in case it doesn't decided to grace us with it's presence before I head up to bed in the next few minutes.

Happy Ruby Tuesday everyone, and happy almost-versary Mary.

Jan said...

Lovely flower bed, Mary. Congratulations on next weeks' anniversary. I'll be out of town for three weeks and won't be "playing" along. I also couldn't see Mr. Linky.

Leora said...

A celebratory post! Love the anniversary tulips.

Good luck with Mr. Linky.

Here's my tulips against red azaleas.

Mojo said...

Mr. Linky MIA again Mary? No worries, we're a resourceful bunch. So I only missed the first 12 weeks of R/T? I would've guessed it was more than that. But better late, as they say...

I can't see Mr Linky either.
I'll try to keep the birthday in mind next week.
Here is my link too, as I'll also head up to bed soon.

The bush is heart shaped, for me at least. Nice touch, goes well with the flowers. No Mr.Linky in sight, my entry can be found by clicking my nick above. :)

Dear teach Mary,
congratulation with one year anniversary.
Have you ever counted the hours spent on your enthusiastic fellow bloggers?
I am ever so grateful for you hosting this meme.
It has given me renewed interest both in photographing and an alert eye to the world around me.
Thank you is such a small word to this great gift.
From Felisol

Love your tulips, Mary. I like all the different colours all in one garden.

Wow! Ruby Tuesday is one year old! It's a fun meme so I'm glad it's still going. ;-)

New blog, new photos, same old Driller. I had to start over in a manner of speaking. Stop by when you get a minute.
Love the flowers.

Dianne said...

I love the tulips, and also how the shrub is a bit wild, I hate when they're shaped to within an inch of their lives

Ralph said...

Lovely tulips. Even with the chilly yesterday and today, your view shows us that Spring is truly here!

Sneaking up on the left side is a ruby Nissan, a Sentra maybe. You can not have too many reds in a RT photo!

napaboaniya said...

Beautiful tulips. I love em.

Beautiful garden of Tulips, Mary. Ive seen so many tulip flowers in the blogosphere this time. I wonder how to plant them? Is it seedlings or what means?

I am submitting an old spring photo. :)

Happy RT!

Jama said...

what a coincidence, 26th May is also my wedding anniversary, our 30th year together.

Auntie E said...

Lovely Spring garden!

I linked to you regarding Think Green, on The Pagan Sphinx blog.

Have a great week!

Ohhhh those tulips are verrrrry pretty! That shows how much behind in weather you are up there! Our tulips were all fizzled at least 3 or 4 weeks ago!

Linnea W said...

Beautiful colorful tulips...who can resist them?! Thanks for being the ever-so-wonderful hostess for all these months!

The tulips here come and go so fast... I wish there were varieties that would bloom all summer. Can never get enough tulips... and our ladybugs love them!

Jew Wishes said...

What a lovely photo, with eye-popping tones and contrasts.

Hey Harriet said...

A very happy one year anniversary! Ruby Tuesday is such a fun meme. A huge congrats to you for painting the town red. Actually, painting the world red! Woohoo! :)

Snoopygie said...

beautiful flowers.

Happy Ruby Tuesday.

ROSIDAH said...

Beautiful flowers to welcome an upcoming special occasion! Have a great week :)

SouthLakesMom said...

Alas, the downside to such a popular meme is there are only so many hours in a day to visit everyone's site and see their photos! And now I'm adding to it! Still, no apologies...that's what the wee hours of the night are for!

Thank you for hosting this! I may be late onto the bandwagon but at least it is a RED bandwagon!

Mo said...

Beautiful tulips and kudos for your one-year mark on your meme!
I just passed 2 years, so I know it sometimes can be hard work!
For this week, I went a little darker - but what is more ruby red than blood?
Fangs a lot for this meme,
Mo

Sara Chapman said...

I just love flower shots. Never get tired of them. So cheerful!

Thanks so much, Mary, for this inspiring meme. You have no idea how far this idea has travelled. When I am out and about, my family suggests Ruby Tuesday shots for me!

Daryl said...

Tulips .. among my fav flowers!

I dont see a Mr Linky but then I am not participating in Ruby Tuesday, just stopped by to say hi

Libby Murphy said...

Oh tulips are works of art. The fields look like pallettes of color in Holland. Yours are gorgeous!
Happy Twirls

Stephanie V said...

The tulips are lovely and the fresh green shrub makes a nice contrast-y photo.

Carole said...

J'aime beaucoup les tulipes et toutes les fleurs de printemps...peut-être parce que ce sont les premières de l'année.
à bientôt.

Martha said...

Hi, this is my first time playing along. Thank you and Viva La Rouge!!

Jim said...

I like your tulip, Mary. I don't think we can grow them very easily down here in the hot.
Happy RT and thank you again for doing all this,
..

busy91 said...

I can't believe it flew by so fast.

Eaton Bennett said...

Hi Mary, your Tulips are gorgeous. I have no success at growing them, no idea why. Makes yours all the more beautiful. :)

Eaton Bennett said...

No Mr. Linky, oh no, so here's mine
You gotta hunt for the Rubies

boliyou said...

Better late than never, right? Love your sunny tulips!

soulbrush said...

Hmmm ... I don't see Mr. Linky but I know there have been problems with many linkies lately. My Ruby Tuesday is at Small Reflections this week ;--)
