Ruby Tuesday



For today's Ruby Tuesday I have some really RED flowers to show you. These are RED and white petunias growing in Brooklyn where my grand-nephew lives.

Photobucket

Aunt Rose, my SIL, shows Jarome the flowers.

I like the macro shots. I hope you do too!


So now what you have to do is sign Mr. Linky and leave a comment. You'll do that won't you?

Oh and don't forget to visit other participants.

I am posting Ruby Tuesday at 2:00 PM EST on Monday to make it a little easier for our friends in other parts of the world to post at an earlier hour.

Well... I'd sign Mr. Linky if he was around to sign. Elusive little beggar that guy.

But so you won't miss out, here's the link without the Linky:

Mojo said...

BTW, are those flowers as big as they look?? If so they're HUGE! Even as a macro they look enormous!

But I love that splash of red in the center. Looks very... Harvard. Nice work!

Thom said...

Mary...that is one of the prettiest flowers I've ever seen. The photography is great...very well done :)

Akelamalu said...

Those petunias are amazing as is your photography! :)

Felisol said...

Love the two-colored petunias.
Rare, aren't they?
Mine are red or white.
Beautiful pictures as always.
I'll have to come back midst in the late English crime to sing in for Mr. Linky.
Maybe a task for Hercule Poirot?

I love the macros Mary - very vibrant!

Mr. Linky - I saw him briefly and then *poof*

I think Jarome is looking at something beyond the flowers - may be his bubble machine:)I've never seen those flowers in two tone coloring - I've only seen the sort that they are all red or purple. Very impressive!

Leora said...

Ah, Mr. Linky plays elusive!

And what pretty red/white petunias you posted, Mary!

P.S. I voted for you on some link that had blogs by women. Most of the blogs I hadn't heard of.

voila ma participation

Hildegarde said...

Jarome with the flowers : I wish he may keep that wonder, this admiration for plant life, all his life.

Ralph said...

The enlarged petals gives us an explosion of ruby and some intriguing imaginative ideas; a parachute? A balloon? A Quilt? This flower really leaps at us with style and flair!

Marites said...

they look so cute and beautiful!

Every time I see petunias I think of that very old song... I'm a lonely little petunia in an onion patch...
They are lovely mixed in with the other colors. Beautiful!

Those are terrific petunias. I'm a big macro fan...beautiful photo.

Raven said...

Gorgeous flower box. Mojo is right... the petunias do look huge... and beautiful. When I think of petunias I always think of the Jones Beach. Haven't been there in centuries, but they used to have petunias along the walk ways there.

Ivanhoe said...

Not playing today but just had to tell you that I love your macro shots and that your grand nephew is a cutie pie :o)

Mo said...

Those are some amazingly RED petunias!
I saw some great RED snapdragons the other day when I took Bessie to get some heliotrope, but of course I didn't have my camera!
I love the red/white/blue effect with these petunias, the alyssum, and the spikes of blue salvia.
I also did a red flower today - hope you can stop by and see it when you get a chance.
Cheers!
Mo
