Ruby Tuesday

The star of today's Ruby Tuesday is none other than our adoring red friend who is strapped in this seatbelt and helping pilot.......
Grandbaby Lily's ride on plane!

For my more discerning readers, how about a lovely red geranium whose petals have taken on the sheen of satin in the harsh afternoon sunlight.

I'm thinking this is the post made by a very proud grandparent. :)))))

Elmo! To the rescue! And a lovely flower, to remind us of grandma's gentle side.

Great gloss in the Elmo pics.
The geranium is more my style though. (I am not blessed with grandchildren yet.)
Every spring I buy geraniums for a fortune, but I can never get them survive the winter.
(Something about going in the cellar and give them some water now and then.)
These petals were extraordinary in color variations and texture.
Just love them.

That's a pretty red geranium, Carletta! I missed ours, it bloomed twice and I didn't get a picture.
I like Lily's airplane. It looks like a fun toy.
Happy RT!

Seeing Elmo makes me smile...Lorelei still likes him but her real love right now is Olivia.

Ralph said...

Elmo is a fune ruby, even adults van find his red orb head disarming - and he is wearing his seat belt, too!

Actually, I was thinking about the look inside, and perhaps velvet is the material in question. The look of Spring in full bloom, and you have captured it well!

Joops said...

My son would love that!

Cherry Tree for Ruby Tuesday.

Hi Carletta, Elmo is always the best Ruby Tuesday photo, don't you think?????? But--I do love the red geranium also.
Hugs,

That's a ride-on plane? How fun, my kids would have loved that when they were little.

Raven said...

Love Elmo and your geranium is exquisite.

George said...

I must not be very discerning, because although I like the geranium very much I think the red pilot is adorable.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

George -- in the comment right above there -- stole the words right out of my fingers ;>))

Loved 'em both!

Hey- but memories take me back, often; like my RT post of today!

Mimi said...

Hi Carletta, lovely Dual Ruby post!!! I think I've outgrown Elmo, cos I prefer the geraniums, or is it that Elmo makes me wish for days gone by?

Also, I want to let you know that I’ve moved my blog, so to visit, just click on the link with this comment. Sorry for the bother, the story is on the blog, hope to see you soon!
