Ruby Tuesday



Photobucket

For Ruby Tuesday you can post all shades of RED so here's a deep pink hydrangea flower. My nephews gave me the plant for Mother's Day. Thank you again, Jerome and Carl!

The hydrangea flowers bloom white and then turn pink, which is surprising, no?

Post your REDs today and sign Mr. Linky and leave a comment. I so love comments!

Visit you fellow Ruby Tuesday players each and every one of us love visits!

We seem to have worked out from the same level today. Capturing a singleton from an overwhelming cluster.
Hydrogenas are one of many favorites.

Thom said...

Beautiful photo my friend. I really like the color of this :)

nonizamboni said...

Gorgeous *new* color for hydrangeas. A marvel of modern floriculture. I really like this.
Happy week, Mary!

Jan said...

Love hydrangeas, this is a fabulous shot. You're lucky to have such wonderful nephews, and handsome, too.

This is funny, my captcha word is "redness"!

Carletta said...

I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day Mary!
The flowers are beautiful!

It's good to be back this week. :)

Robin said...

What lovely petals it has, so much texture.

Happy Ruby Tuesday Mary.

A striking flower! Very clever getting this one from a cluster of petals on a hydrangea!

ellen b said...

That's a pretty shade of red/pink for a hydrangea. Happy Ruby to you Mary!

Patti said...

That is a beautiful shade of deep pink. Unusual for hydrangea, I'd say.

I have been wanting to plant a blue one in the yard. I may do so!

Happy Ruby Tuesday, Mary ~

Eleonora said...

Absolutely adore hydrangeas, but sadly I am very superstitious. And planted hydrangeas are said to jinx young women's marital plans. For the most part of my youth I slept in a bed upholstered with a hydrangea print fabric...

Ciao

MOO said...
