Ruby Tuesday

Bloggingham blooms by the potting shed




Wanna play?


Mary at Work Of The Poet started this royally fine meme some time ago. According to Mary, here are the rules:

"On Tuesdays you can post any photo you like (it must be one of your own) that contains the color RED.
I will post a NEW Ruby Tuesday each Tuesday.Your photo can contain lots of RED or a little bit of RED"

When you've posted your Ruby Tuesday posts go back to Work Of The Poet and enter your name in Mr. Linky."

Memes are great for discovering new blogs in the sphere and making friends. Thanks Mary. This is a good one!

Very pretty. Mine's up as well.

Carletta said...

I like them against the weathered wood!

Linda said...

Woooo ... pretty!

I keep seeing this meme around and it looks like a lot of people are really enjoying it. Perhaps one of these days I'll join in but for now I just like looking at all the pretty red things!

Raven said...

Such a pretty red. I just want to reach out and pick them and put them in a vase on my desk. I agree with careltta about the wood. I love weathered wood.

Bobbie said...

Here's another vote of appreciation for the weathered wood behind the flowers. Happy Ruby Tuesday.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Lovely cheerful blooms. ;-)

Gayle said...

Such big blooms!

Ivanhoe said...

Love roses! Your is a really nice red, too.
And I love the new header! That's a big Palace to take care of :o)

Ralph said...

Nice red flowers at Bloggingham! These add necessary color to the normal gray castle walls.

Is there any splash of color like this in the dungeon?

Starrlight said...

Ok that is it, I miss my roses. Next spring I am pulling out the ugly Oregon Grape and planting a Rose bush. HOA be damned!

the teach said...

Mimi, What beautiful flowers - perfect for Ruby Tuesday. I'm real happy you are participating! :)

Dianne said...

the flowers are lovely and the light peeking through the wood slats is wonderful

I too am a big fan of weathered wood

Mimi Lenox said...

Desert - Thanks! I shall be right over.

Carletta - I do enjoy the wood and the colors against it. There is a window box on the shed too but the fleurs weren't lookin' so hot at the time for a pic!

Linda - I like this meme! Thanks to Mary.

Raven - You may pick if you wish....

Mimi Lenox said...

Bobbie - Happy Ruby Tuesday to you as well!

eg tour guide - They do cheer me up!

Ivanhoe - Nice to see you. I am still working on the header. It is a little toooo big. Thank you.

Mimi Lenox said...

Ralph - Are you kidding??! Color in the dungeon? Ha!
(evil Queen laugh)

Mimi Lenox said...

Starrlight - I've never seen an Oregon grape and what is HOA? YAY for the roses!

Mimi Lenox said...

Mary - Thank YOU for starting this. I love seeing the red pics everywhere.

Mimi Lenox said...

Dianne - Diane - Weathered wood is one reason I love Bloggingham. But the upkeep.. Uggh...

Starrlight said...

You are not missing much, Mimi. And HOA is home owners association. We live in a townhouse condo/community. They pretty much let us plant what we want though.

chaviva said...

Beautiful blooms! :)

Mimi Lenox said...

Starr- I will wait for your blooms then...get to plantin' girl and save a pic of the Oregon grape for me. I've never seen one.

Chaviva - Welcome and thank you! I like your site.

WillThink4Wine said...

It's lovely to see that Bloggingham Palace has a weathered shed, and such lovely blooms, too!

Star8278 said...

Thanks for the recommnedation on entrecard, it was my first. I am honored it came from the Queen.

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

I love your red royal flowers Mimi. Have a great day. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

ellen b said...

Is there really a place called Bloggingham?! That's so much fun. This blogging girl would love to visit. The blooms there are pretty. Happy Ruby Tuesday.

Tink *~*~* said...

I love, love, LOVE your header image, with all the castle turrets! If I had access to a clap-hands smiley, I'd insert it here. :D

Pretty flowers fit for a Queen.

Nice Ruby Tuesday entry, Your Highness.

onangelwings said...

Awesome use of red. Beautiful pictures. Love the colors on your blog too, they remind me of autumn.

Mimi Lenox said...

WillThink - Bloggingham has a few surprises. Not just the dungeon....Thanks for commenting!

Mimi Lenox said...

Star - You're welcome! And thank you.

Sandee - Hugs back to you my dear.

Mimi Lenox said...

ellenb - Of course there is a Bloggingham. My address is 7000 Pencil Skirt Lane in Banister, North Carolina. Don't you see the castle?

Mimi Lenox said...

Tink - Thank you! I am really getting into the header and some other changes. Appreciate it.

Mimi Lenox said...

Patti - Baby Boy wants to pick the flowers all the time. I let him. Of course.

onangelwings - Thank you. I appreciate the visit!

Jean-Luc Picard said...

A super flower, Mimi...a gorgeous red.

ilanadavita said...

Nice flowers.

the teach said...

Mimi, I haven't applied for coding for Ruby Tuesday from Mr. Linky. I just get a general code from Mr. Linky which I use for the day. But maybe I should apply for a special Ruby Tuesday code. Thanks for reminding me Mimi..

Mimi Lenox said...

Jean-Luc -Thank you! It matches your spacesuit.

ilanadavita - Welcome to the castle and thank you.

Mimi Lenox said...

Mary - I only asked because I saw it on Desert Songbird's site and a couple of others today. I just thought I was not doing something right. Your meme is really growing!

Felisol said...

Dear Mimi Lenox,
I love roses. somehow my love is not returned.
The only ones growing in my garden are wild ones.
Guess I am a little untamed myself too.
Your red roses were just the right color and size. bet they have an odeur as well?
From Felisol

Amber Star said...

Lovely roses...out by your shed?
Thanks for coming by and inviting me to your place. I'm enjoying the visit.

Too hot for roses here right now.

Geraldine said...

What beautiful, unique flowers! You have an enchanting blog, very cooooool....

quilly said...

Fabulous flowers. Love the rustic wooden trellis, too.

Mimi Lenox said...

Felisol - These are smaller blooms and look a little "old-fashioned"....certainly not American Beauty roses...but I love them for their uniqueness in color. The red has a coral mix that is nice. Thanks for visiting!

Mimi Lenox said...

Amber - Thanks for visiting. Yes, there is a trellis leaning on the shed and when they were at their best the roses were lovely against the building. There were many of them. Glad you enjoyed!

Mimi Lenox said...

Geraldine - Nice to make your cyber-acquaintance. I'm glad you like my space. You are welcome anytime!

Mimi Lenox said...

quilly - Thank you! Nice to see you!

Anndi said...

I can almost smell it from here!

Chuck said...

I would love to play, but I don't have time. I'm still catching up with all your 5,432 posts that you wrote while I was sleeping. Go figure. Oh, and I am honored *bowing down to you* and appreciate the Entrecard recommendation. From the bottom of my heart, I kiss your feet. You the woman of the hour, the day, the week and especially the week end. OK. Now I left my comment and deserve to go fetch meself a nice warm & fuzzy...a tasty beverage. Cheerio my new bloggy friend.

Mimi Lenox said...

Anndi - Stop and smell the roses...

Chuck - You do deserve a nice tasty beverage...maybe a piping hot cup of green tea while you catch up...or something stronger. You are welcome for the well-deserved recommendation.

Your comments always crack me up totally. I'm the woman of the weekend? Yippee! That must be a really good sign....

napaboaniya said...

Beautiful blooms you've captured and definitely perfect for Ruby Tuesday :)

Travis said...

Purty flowers!

Mimi Lenox said...

Thanks for visiting my blog today. Have a great week.

Reba @ Reba's Run said...

Whoof!! Bloggingham flowers... Blogging & Ham... 2 things I love. Bark! Arf, arf, arf.

me ann my camera said...

Very beautiful flowers and I love your castle header as well as your animations!

Jim said...

Hey Mimi, I got here as fast as I could! With a few detours, like the pig-guy and the peace-globe.
Are those flowers red? They are very pretty, Mrs. Jim could tell me what they are because there is now such thing as 'blogginham blooms,' I think they came from North Carolina.
Thanks for your visit to my red phone booth yesterday, I am in the process of catching up.
I have a WW also on my other blog, I told you about that below.

FoxxFyrre said...

Funny, Your a bright rosy red today, and I'm a cool serene blue. Maybe we should start our own rainbow. ggg
Have a great day Mimi, Great big hugs and such.
