Ruby Tuesday



Thought I'd use one of DrillerAA's badges today for RUBY TUESDAY. I love this one because it is so shiny and RED!

Thanks Driller. I really appreciate those badges you made!

Here's my post for today:



These impatiens flowers are probably gone now. I took this shot back in early October.




I found these orangy-RED items in the Walt Whitman Birthplace out on Long Island, NY. The pitcher has RED trim!



This bit of RED (ooo a RED door!) resides in front of the South Street Seaport Museum, NYC.

Gee, I hope I won't have trouble finding more RED in the Winter! What with all that WHITE snow!

Well, HAPPY RUBY TUESDAY, everyone!

Please sign Mr. Linky and, well, you know the rest!

Beautiful red flowers can turn any window in a picture perfect event. I like the copper thing / I am not sure what is it, but I like old times crafts/. Greetings from NC and my mom Nadine sends greetings from Bulgaria.

Rinkly Rimes said...

I love the angle of your final shot. And all so rosy red.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

I bet you're right about the red impatiens being gone now. But the red door will still be there. ;-)


Red shows up beautifully in the white snow, Mary, so don't worry!

Ralph said...

All classic rubies, the views of past eras. The window box is a beauty, who designs new buildings with boxes? Yo can't open the windows these days...

The red door on this classic sidewalk, what a nice view of of a real neighborhood. I can imagine the crowds, the neighbors mingling and interacting. Not at all like suburbia today...

Leora said...

You do have an eye for those pretty red flowers that delight and brighten. My impatiens are looking limpy and dull; I should probably just pull them. Love the old-fashioned pitcher.

Robin said...

Such pretty impatiens, they bring some much needed color for me, everything here is wet and gray today.

Loree said...

I love the colour of the impatiens against the black window frame. The other shots are great too.

Mojo said...

Hey, don't shortchange those impatiens. Those things are tough. I've seen 'em grow with no dirt!

Thom said...

Wonderful photos for RT :)

eden said...

I love all the photos especially the red impatient. I used to plant those but they are all gone now. we call them here,"lazy daisy"

Dimple said...

Annie said...

The gentle curves of soft texture of the water ewer really touched me. I could almost feel its silky smoothness beneath my fingertips.

nonizamboni said...

Great photos--love the venues and the small, red details!

eileeninmd said...

Impatiens are my favorite, lovely window box. Happy Ruby Tuesday and thanks for hosting.

Patti said...

The impatiens are so pretty, but they must be gone now. (insert sad face)

I love the pitcher and antiques you found in the Walt Whitman House.

Happy Ruby Tuesday, Mary! Thanks as always for hosting.

Hello Mary! Love the reds you found this week. That window with the planter box is so charming and the other reds are very cool. I love visiting places like this...Happy November to you.

Nifty reds as always! Love the angled perspective and red door in the final shot especially ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Dianne said...

I love the scene from the Seaport!!

Paz said...

I love all the touches of red, especially that nice, shiny red helmet.

SandyCarlson said...

I really like your reds, Mary. I'm kind of in a (happily) blue mood with the Yankees working their magic and all, but this is a nice break!

Sandy "From the Heart of Texas" said...

Love all three of your Ruby Tuesday photos! Red doors are wonderful. I like entering through red doors. And I really like the angle you used on it. The red flowers are very lovely and the pitcher and other items are great!

Great post! Those flowers are beautiful, and they put a smile on my face.

I participated for the first time.

Peggy said...

Oh, I so want to go to Walt Whitman's place. I've been to Roosevelt's but Whitman's is too close to the city for my family members so they won't drive me there.

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

I especially love your new header photo this week. And what's not to love with red geraniums, red doors, the works! I've posted a red door, too, with leftover Halloween spiders.

Napaboaniya APAD said...

Gone will be the impatiens flowers, but definitely coming back next year :)
Happy RT!!

moosh said...

Nice variety of shots, Mary. Perfect to liven up a gray evening here in Massachusetts. :)

bj said...

What great photos, Mary...Beautiful/
BTW, what time do you put up your link on Monday?
Also, may I ask how you center your sticky post? My Christmas countdown is over to the left and i want it centered but can't figure out HOW...I am a little slow!! :O(
Thanks so much for hosting...

Ann said...

I like that bed warmer, beats the electric blanket for safety and power saving.

Gattina said...

Very nice findings !

Felisol said...

Dear teach Mary,
I love the way you pick up red details which really make your pictures.
The impatiences, The red lines on that antique jar and the summer-look of the open door, the chair on a small pot of flowers. An Italian feeling.
From the cold north.
