Ruby Tuesday

Hi Everyone! You know what today (tomorrow) is...
IT'S RUBY TUESDAY!!


I posted a group of these flowers for SOOC Sunday yesterday and nobody knew the name of them.
 I don't know the name either so I posted this one flower (and used MULTIPLY in Adobe photoshop 7).

**I hope someone will be able to tell us the name...

what a lovely bloom but sorry, i don't know the name.

Eng said...

Looking forward to this meme every week...thanks for hosting!

judi said...

Mary, those look like tulip leaves and the center of the flower looks tulipy to me. A hybrid tulip is my best guess.

CafebyJW said...

Beautiful, both the header and the post.

Leora said...

Mary, with the help of Judi's comment, I typed
"red hybrid tulip images"
into Google Images.

I found:
Hybrid Tulips vs. Species Tulips

The post seems to imply Tulipa linifolia, which is a species tulip.

Felisol said...

We call them parrot tulips. They are smaller than ordinary tulips, and well suited for our rough climate.
Beautiful shot.

EG Wow said...

Lovely red flower, Mary. I think it;'s a species tulip. This would be about the right time for them to be blooming in your part pf the world.

Kerslyn said...

Lovely flower! It looks like it belongs to the family of lilies.

My entry's up anyway. Happy RT everyone!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Hi Mary -- that flower looks tropical! Like something we'd see down here in FL Maybe it's just the color that makes me think that; beautiful whatever its name is.

Ladynred said...

looks like tulips to me! Beautiful flower

DrillerAA09 said...

Great looking flower, but I have NO idea what it is. I'll be "Digital Flower" will know if she's posts tomorrow.

The Cunning Runt said...

That a beautiful shot of I Don't Know What.

Thanks for the beauty, though.

Eaton Bennett said...

Hi Mary, happy red Tuesday to you! That flower is beautiful and what a sharp marcro. I don't know what the flower is either, but...it has similarities to a Tulip in leaf, flower and center.

regards,
Eaton.

I don't know what is the name of this pretty red flower. Hope someone can tell us.

I have many unidentifiable items on my RT post - dried seafood. Do you know we can eat seahorses?

Askew To You said...

I love the red poppies in your header photo, too. Gorgeous! Have a great day!

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

I am pretty sure that is a tulip, fully open. The leaves sure look like that. Some tulips have pointy petals. Actually I have tulips for my post today. Come visit if you have a chance:

So where was the header photo taken? I've never seen that kind of poppy in fields in the USA.

Loree said...

Is my Red Lily the same plant? There is a name for ths, but I can't think of it.

I grew them in Singapore, and it also grows in New Zealand.
