Ruby Tuesday


Vinny brought home some apples, the first of Autumn.  I rolled them around the table a little and took a couple of photos. This macro was the best shot for Ruby Tuesday!



This shot of red currants (?) was taken over the weekend at the Walt Witman Birthplace on Long Island.



Don't forget to sign Mr. Linky and leave a comment. Thanks very much. And you know how much everybody loves a visit!

The red fruit looks delicious!

Hey Mary,
Hope you had a great weekend. I love both shots but I like the apple best!
Mine's posted on my photoblog today.

Currents! Now I know what they look like, I saw a bush the other day, rather tallish kind of bush, it was loaded with this fruit! Beautifully red and glossy fruit!

Felisol said...

Dear taech Mary,
I'm always fascinated by the transparency of the red currants.
Aren't they a beautiful work of creation?
You've also captured the coming fall, the leaves are brown edged and curly.
My berries are long time ago (a month) buried in the freezer.
The apples remind me I've got a huge plastic bag of apples waiting to be transformed to apple cake. Apple pie seems to be out of my league. I'm searchiing for a good recipe.

Remind me to get instructions for how to post wonderful backgrounds such as yours with blogger. Those currents look as if you pick them off the screen.

Robin said...

Those are luscious looking Mary, great choice.

Mojo said...

Wow! Those currants or berries or whatever they are are really, really red! Great stuff Mary!

Patti said...

Those red apples look delicious. Happy fall!

I think I have those berries on one of our bushes. I didn't know they were currants.

Loree said...

Hi, this is my first time and I am quite excited. I hope I've done everything right. I love the photo of the apples. Thanks for hosting.

The apples look luscious. I think the berries might be highbush cranberries. Here red currants are ripe in early July. Very nice photos!

Hildegarde said...

"Now turn red to tempt Snow White
To make her hunger for a bite...
When she breaks the tender peel
To taste the apple from my hand
Her breath will still, her blood congeal
Then I'll be fairest in the land." ;-)

marian said...

i just want to bite into those juicy red apples..those cherries are irresistible too :)

Pagan Sphinx said...

Gorgeous natural reds. My post features apple too. Of course! I live in New England!

Have a great week, Mary!

Rose said...

I was just thinking I need to go to the orchard! Your photo makes it all the more tempting.

Rinkly Rimes said...

Red currents! I haven't tasted those for years. Maybe they don't grow in Australia.

Mimi said...

Lovely red apples.
Red apples ALWAYS remind me of Snow White! But in a nice (my kids used to be small and adoring) kind of way.

Jim said...

Hi Mary, if I only can one or the other, I'll take the apples. Or one apple.
Happy RT!

We won't forget this one:
Little Jack Horner
Sat in the corner,
Eating a Christmas pie;
He put in his thumb,
And pulled out a (current)*,
And said 'What a good boy am I!'


*The current is controversial but Christmas pies are made with currents, not plums.

Terri said...

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

I love the header photo! And of course your apples and currants (a food theme?) look so wonderfully red. I did a close up this week also, a red, red rose. I just have roses on the brain lately. Have a great week.

Gattina said...

i find i have such a store of pictures that i took on our way out west that i think i will be dipping into it for quite some time.
it is really funny how bernie and i and the little red car were noticing so much red on the trip..
i just don't think that on the other seven trips that i took to see my beloved manitoba if i ever even noticed the reds!
hmmm..for sure and this is very strange!!

I could bite right into that apple and I would love to visit Walt Whitman's birthplace ~ I've been so close but didn't make it there. Please enjoy brunch with me on the River Clyde today.

Wonderful autumn luxury :)

Heidi said...

I love both of your shots Mary! I am so excited about the apple shot, my 3 year old and I are going to do a fun apple tree preschool lesson today. We will be eating several different apples to see which they like best. And the red one's are very tasty! Thanks for hosting this very fun meme!

Coffeedoff said...

This is my first Ruby Tuesday post. Hope it is OK

Hi! Could not resist the ruby challange. So many things to get inspired by and I love photochallanges. Hope it ok for me to join. Kram från Sverige :)

Snowbird said...

Oooo, those look good enough to eat! LOL. Hop on over to my blog and see how the policemen in Dublin park their cars. Frightening!!

hapzydeco said...

Mary,
Thanks for hosting. Look forward to posting often.

marcia@joyismygoal said...

That apple shot was deliciously perfect- i could almost smell it

Ali said...

Mmm, that apple looks soo yummy =) I love how red the currants are.

Patty Reiser said...

The apples indeed look good enough to eat. Like in an apple pie. Thanks for hosting this blog theme. I have enjoyed participating.

Wishing you a scent-sational day!
Patty

Margaret Gosden said...

Yes. Those are red currents! In England we grew black currents, too, adding them to raspberries and blackberries, and other currents to make a rich stew, and/or to make a Summer Pudding. To do that, you line a basin with slices of bread, pour in the stewed fruit, add a slice of bread to make a lid, then refrigerate it over night. By next day the bread has absorbed the mixture, thickening the mixture, and the basin is turned upside down, removed, to make a pudding! Serve with fresh whipped cream. Deliscious. Note: black currents are rarely grown here

Liza said...

Yum! They look so crisp. :)

Desert Songbird said...

Love the apple shot.

Mine's up!

Nukke said...

Ms. Fiddlesticks said...

I have never seen red currants. Very vivid red. If you do not get them I am sure the birds will. Great photos.

boliyou said...

Great macro on the apple! I love those currants. Their color is so deep! I've never been to Whitman's birthplace, but I've visited his former one-room schoolhouse in Smithtown lots of times.

Happy Ruby Tuesday!

moosh said...

I have some beries near my house that look similar. I don't know the local fruit yet. Apples look tasty

The Cunning Runt said...

Mmmmmmm, apples and red currants. What a delicious Ruby Tuesday post, and with such luscious photos!

I'm gonna go eat something. ;)

Jama said...

That red currants look so fresh and juicy! I don't think I've ever seen them hanging on a tree before.

Michelle said...
