A RED door on the back of a rectory (priests' house attached to a parish). I don't kow what "ELENA" means.

Join us in posting for Ruby Tuesday. It's fun going around and visiting other players. Please only sign Mr. Linky if you have a post up.

Miss going to City Island...mom and dad spent so much time there as teens and then took us there as kids and I brought Matt there when he was young.

That red door is very attractive!

Tink *~*~* said...

What a pretty little place! Reminds me of the barn red, old fashioned Dairy Queen on Sanibel Island. They sell hot dogs, too :)

Happy Ruby Tuesday, Mary.

I love the red door. I once knew an Italian lady whose name was Elena. It's a lovely name. Wasn't there a song called 'Marie Elena' once?

sunnymama said...

Two very different reds but both shots are wonderful! :)

Greyscale Territory said...

Lots of interesting character in the building and door! Also like the sculpted area above the door! It looks as if it may have represented something!

Marie Höglund said...

My first entry here at RT. I love your serie of posts.

nonizamboni said...

Happy RT, Mary. Love your Palm Sunday poem--you're multi-talented!
Great reds from your neck of the woods.

Susan L (lily40au) said...

great reds as usual Mary. I must look more as I walk around the streets for all things red.

Karen of 3G2S said...

I love the color of that door! I think it is my favorite shade of red out of all of them. :)

Pagan Sphinx said...

Mary, that red door shot is exceptional!

EG Wow said...

zzzRed doors seem to be becoming very popular lately...or am I noticing them because of Ruby Tuesday?

Red is a great colour for a place of business. It's hard to pass by and not see it. LOL

♥ Kathy said...

I think red doors are so neat...I'm not sure what attracts me to them lol I like the red building too!

Princess of CJ said...

i like buildings like this one.. have a rustic look. I think "Elena" could be a name?

Dianne said...

I love the red hot dog house :)
City Island is such a great place

I tried to find out if Elena had any meaning but didn't turn up anything

Spadoman said...

Great house! Fantastic red door!

happilyretired said...

Kewl red house and wonderful red door!
Hugs and blessings,

Eaton Bennett said...

The hot dog place is just so country America to me, it also reminds me of Sweden. That red and style of building is very Swedish. The red door is delightful...I have no idea what Elena means either. Have a wonderful Ruby Tuesday, Mary! :))

Candy said...

Knock!
Knock!
I'll take two dogs with the works ;-P

napaboaniya said...

Red doors make them look so welcoming!! :)

Christine said...

I love that red house with what looks to be teal trim! Great ruby red photos, Mary. I'll have be watching more for red so I can join in.

Becky and Gary said...

The Cunning Runt said...

Very cool, and by coincidence, I also have a red building and a second shot of a red door - what in the world could this mean???

;)

Paz said...

i love red doors.

i looked up the name 'elena' and read that it's of greek origin and its meaning is sun ray, shining light, bright one, light, mercy...

another form of the name is helen, ellen, helena... interesting.

marie said...

I was looking for something to do this Tuesday and found all this Ruby stuff...thought I'd join in.

I love the red door!

Gattina said...

Love this door looks so joyful ! The ice cream house doesn't look bad either. Elena is just name I even have a friend named Elena. Maybe the house was named after an Elena long time ago ?

Marcee said...

Love that door! My mom's and my grandma's name is/was Elena!!

Happy RT!

Liza said...

Oh, that door really sings. I love it! I have some anthuriums for you this Ruby Tuesday: http://www.artsquadgraphics.com/blog/2010/03/29/anthuriums/

I love the red frame buildings of the US north east. They are so charming. And now I REALLY want a hot dog.

Great blog. Thanks for sharing Mary :)

Loree said...

Lovely, lovely reds. I especially like the red house.

Marcee said...

Forgot to mention: Elena is Spanish for Helen or Ellen.
:)

Gena D said...

Gorgeous pics!!! I love the red door and the clapboard building ... just my colour and architecture.
thanks Mary for the opportunity to share!

It is a bit strange to see hot dogs and pretzels being sold out of a house. Stranger still to see the name of a women above the door of a rectory. Perhaps she is the cleaning lady...either way it's a beautiful doorway.

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

What a beautiful red door!!! Love it! It matches my Red Rabbit Hole! Come see!

Jientje said...

Painted wooden houses are so American, most of our houses here in Belgium are brick ones. I found a lot of ruby photo opportunities in Bruges. Happy RT!

Kero said...

New York, New York! I dream to visit New York! =)

Icy BC said...

What a gorgeous building and door!

MOO said...

Pretzels remind me of Spring Break. And Spring Break is what my shot is all about this week...

Spring Break Siesta

Peggy said...

Wow, what a beautiful building. I'd like a hot dog from there, I'm sure it would be yummy.

And a beautiful door. I too googled Elena.

Also love your header and your poem.

Happy Easter

Melissa B. said...

Love the "barn" red of the first snap, and the composition of the second. The reflection in the pane of glass on that door is awesome, too!

WanderingThought said...

That building is just beautiful, and the door is very catching too.

onangelwings said...

Look at that red door. I always wanted a red door on my house. Looks awesome. Now I have a crazy craving for hot dogs and ices.

The one with the View said...

Marice said...

Mimi said...

Love the clapboard house that sells pretzels- you're making me hungry!
Is Elena something to do with Helen? Maybe a Saint?
Happy RT!

Mimi said...

Love the red clapboard house selling pretzels! You're making me hungry!
I wonder is Elena a form of Helen? As in Saint Helen?
My RT is up now- just in the nick of time!
