Ruby Tuesday

For Ruby Tuesday, I thought I would include a couple entries. Why two? Well, I wanted to show something I had not shown before. That is this hibiscus bloom. It is from a scan, taken in 1996. It was in my mom's yard...she had passed away in February of that year, so this was taken later in the summer.
Then in looking for something for Ruby Tuesday I ran across this barn...I have published it before but not for Ruby Tuesday. It is just sooooo red that I cannot resist showing it again. This is the actual color of the barn...it is so bright it almost knocks your eyes out.
Some might say that it stands out like a sore thumb, but personally I like it. A lot. It is seen if I take a certain route to or from the strip pits. And no I didn't get to go out there today.

I got busy doing laundry, taping off where Roger was painting in what will be Lorelei's room, and the time just flew today. Just think....Lorelei is one week old today! It is hard to believe she has been here a week already.

The hibiscus is a beauty! I wouldn't call the red barn an eyesore. ;-)

The red house looks so outstanding among the other things there!

Carletta said...

Wow Rose! I'm glad you found the hibiscus shot - it is a true beauty - really beautiful.
I remember the barn and I like it too.

Barb said...

WOW that is a REDDDDDD barn, but I like it too! The Hibiscus is so pretty, were you able to transplant the bush to your house? And for Lorelei to be 1 week old already seems impossible, but the time goes fast especially with grandbabies around.

Rose, The hibiscus is beautiful and the barn, well, isn't a barn supposed to be RED? :) Happy Ruby Tuesday! BTW My guess is the word in RED it Butt(s) and it's written on a toilet seat... How about "Butts welcome here." Ha! :)

Both are gorgeous, Rose. I love the hibiscus--but I also like that bright red barn.

Great Ruby Tuesday!!!
Hugs,

Good choices Rose. I like both of them and I might just join in if I can find something red.

Lorri said...

How lovely, each photo. The hibiscus is vibrant and beautiful, and I love barns...so nostalgic.

Tricia said...

I like the barn too, Rose! And that red really DOES stand out, but it isn't an eye sore! hehehe
That flower is awesome red! Both shots great for a day like Ruby Tuesday!!!
I'm really sorry to hear about your mother passing - I didn't know that!

I like the barn, too, Rose -- it's got a lot of character. The hibiscus is beautiful.

A fine ruby tuesday image. I wonder if that barn was painted with an accent red which can be super saturated and brilliant. Nice image.

Mojo said...

That's definitely some eye-popping red in both of those shots! The hibiscus is gorgeous!

Hi Rose,
What a beautiful Ruby Tuesday post. I like the flower and the barn. Your header is so cool. I want to walk on that path. Congratulations on becoming a grandmother!

I say if you're going to have a red barn, why not make it a the reddest you can! That's a beaut. And so is the flower.

Felisol said...

I am relieved to learn that barns are red in the US too.
I had planned to make a barn report from our rural area.
Too cold an snow too do that now.
