Ruby Tuesday



Hi everyone! Welcome back to Ruby Tuesday.

The lovely geraniums and benches in the photos decorate the Dental Department at Montefiore University Hospital in the Bronx, N.Y.

It's amazing to me that you can always find a little bit of loveliness if you look for it.

I thought this week if you are a brand new participant you'd make sure to tell us in your comment. And then we'd all make a particular effort to visit you.

I've published early this week as I did last week for our participants from around the world.



Don't forget to sign Mr. Linky too!

Me first? That's never happened before. We'll see if I am once I click publish. :)
Love the shots Mary! My favorite flower!
Happy Tuesday!

Mojo said...

Wow! You may have the only meme with a fully functioning Mr. Linky I've seen today. And definitely the only one with these arresting red flowers!

Ralph said...

Not only are the flowers beautiful, the cedar planters are nice in and of themselves. A bit of nature in an urban setting is always appreciated!

Robin said...

Beautiful flowers. My mom worked at Monty for years (not at the dental dept though). I remember it being a lot grayer outside.

Thanks for the early posting - it definitely helps those of us already closing in on bedtime :).

Leora said...

Love your carnation shots. My favorite is the second, with the perspective of the benches. Great: the carnations are really singing in these photos; the people are the wallflowers.

Thom said...

That is such a pretty flower. Just stunning :)

Daryl said...

Geraniums are such pretty bright cheerful flowering plants, nice shot!

Coffee Girl said...

Lovely geraniums indeed! Happy Tuesday! :)

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Don't geraniums perk up a neighbourhood? These are in good shape too. ;-)

Queen-Size funny bone said...

nothing says spring like geraniums

Ode to Adrienne said...

Great photos! The red is really striking :)

Jamie said...

Geraniums are such a vibrant flower. It's almost as if they are apologizing for not having a pleasant odor so they make up for it by being beautiful.

Felisol said...

Dear teach Mary,
I love the geraniums. Yours were vibrant red, and were lighting up the surroundings for tired people resting on the benches.
For some reasons they are called princes in Norway.
Elderly ladies used to have lots of them in all nuances of red. They were easy to multiply.
Somehow they must have been gene manipulated. I never succeed in making sprouts on cuttings.

Have a happy Ruby Tuesday.

Marites said...

so beautiful flowers, they definitely light up the place:)

Rinkly Rimes said...

Delightfully cheerful geraniums to wake up to. There are some on my page too.

Annie said...

Very pretty geraniums. Nary a wilted blossom or leaf in sight. someone is taking very good care of them.

ellievellie said...

Ok - fed the kids - now I'm free to comment! I like the whole place - looks like a dream place to have a walk. Somebody takes good care of the flowers - you can't trust me with that :)

nonizamboni said...

These are the biggest geraniums I've seen in a long time--and mighty red. Thanks for letting me play along again this week. Such fun!
Happy Tuesday, Mary.

DrillerAA09 said...

Okay, so I've got a Ruby Tuesday red batting helmet this week. Check it out.

Nice street posies there Mary. I'm in full baseball mode right now.

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

Jama said...

They are so gorgeous!

The Cunning Runt said...

These are beautiful, Mary. And as your other Ralph pointed out, the planters are nicely done as well!

srp said...

Geraniums are one of my mother's favorite flowers. Each spring I plant them along with either ivy or a small white flowering plant, some tall grasses and sometimes coleus.. in the planters on our porch. She derives great pleasure from watching them bloom all summer.

CrAzY Working Mom said...

This is a beautiful perspective. I love those red flowers! Nice job, Teach.

Mine is a series of photos taken of a princess in flight. Come by and take a look when you get a chance.

Happy RT!

Gattina said...

such a simple but nice decoration. Geraniums were the only plants which "my" snails didn't eat up !

Maria said...

They are gorgeous!

Sara Chapman said...

I love geraniums. When I used to live in N. California, they overwintered most years and so got really huge! Nice photos, so cheery.

I've posted flowers too, red and yellow gaillardias.

Yrsa said...

A tranquil environment - even if the screwing of benches to the ground somehow disturbs the illusion... Fresh summer beauty!

magiceye said...

Candy said...

WOW those beauties pop against the rich browns. They almost look fake. Gorgeous!

I had fun with my first Ruby Tuesday.

Looking forward to see what others have to share.

Happy Day,
Candy

Gayle said...

What lovely benches and beautiful planters. Too bad everyone is hurrying by and not sitting down to enjoy them.

Auntie E said...

I really like geraniums. These red one are very nice. I guess it calm people down before entering the office,Happy Ruby Tuesday.

ROSIDAH said...

Beautiful flowers! I so agree to you that we can always find a little loveliness, if we look for it. Thank you for sharing, Mary. Have a great week, everyone :)

Kim said...

Mary,
What vibrant shots! I absolutely love geraniums...they almost seem bullet proof here in Chicagoland, they don't mind the crazy weather we get...just seem to weather it all...

Patti said...

Hi Mary,
I agree that you can find a bit of loveliness anywhere if you take the time to look. Lovely planters. The geraniums are nice and red for Ruby Tuesday-ing.

I did a sequel to last week's post.

Christi @ A Southern Life said...

Lovely red geraniums. I'm new to Ruby Tuesday. This looks like fun. I posted last night (Monday) with your cute logo and link but somehow it didn't get posted. I redid it this morning and it is up now. My red is a little red headed bird and my robins. I followed them from nest building through little eggs hatching to leaving the nest on my porch. They came back for a vist!

Terry said...

hi mary t...these geraniums are some pretty,
one thing great about them is that they will last all summer and fall, eh?
they really make these benches look appealing and inviting to sit down for a bit but i must hurry on as i have miles to go before i rest!
happy ruby tuesday beloved teach...love terry

Eaton Bennett said...

Your geraniums are gorgeous, I already left a comment for you under your joke post, for Ruby Tuesday ~sigh~ I thought I was in the right place...:)

Happy Ruby Tuesday, Mary.

Melli said...

This list is gettin' crazy long! WOW!

Love those geraniums Mary! They are ever so cheerful!

Angelika said...

Heya, I am new to "Ruby Tuesday", I love it and decided to join.

Beautiful pictures of the sumptious red geraniums!

Chuchie Lopez-Wilks said...

Nice photos here...love the red flowers.. I am playing today.

Karen ~Georgia Angel said...

The geraniums are beautiful. I chose some red flowers for my post also.

Desert Songbird said...

Sadly, many of the flowers around here have gone to sleep because of the heat.

Mine's up now.

Stephanie V said...

Ewph! That list is gettin' long. I feel like I've slept in...
The geraniums are beautiful, Mary. They just ARE summer.

storyteller said...

I could have sworn I left a comment when I left my link, but I suppose it could have been a momentary lapse where my intention got lost. I've returned to visit others now that I have a bit of time ... and am reminded how much I love geraniums and photograph benches frequently myself. One of these days I'll create a mosaic with them ... perhaps.
Hugs and blessings,

Jim said...

Mary, I can sit on that bench with my computer and do blogging while waiting for Mrs. Jim. If they have wi-fi it will be better.

Happy RT, thanks for doing this once more. I do like your header picture, the table and the flowers are very pretty. You did 'good.'

Danielle said...

I like that! A little bit of loveliness. Nice ring to it. Very lovely flowers indeed!

Marilyn said...

I can never keep geraniums alive for very long. I wonder why. They aren't supposed to be all that hard to grow. Anyway I like them very much. They look so cheerful.

Martha in PA said...

Beautiful!

Rebecca said...

My red geraniums are doing beautifully this year too. Isn't is wonderful the way flowers always add a little beauty for us.

This is my 2nd week. Thanks to all for visiting last week and your kind comments.

Jan said...
