Ruby Tuesday and Rednesday --- touch of red

While on the hunt for another great Craigslist find on Friday we saw this lovely gate with two huge wreaths. It was the entrance to a mansion which seems a bit out of place on a country road in Missouri.

Snapped this shot today of the geraniums blooming on my kitchen window sill.

I am linking this post to Ruby Tuesday and Rednesday.

Mary at "Work of the Poet" hosts Ruby Tuesday. Rednesday is a Wednesday meme hosted by Sue at "It's a Very Cherry World." Both memes are dedicated to the color red. To join the fun or just check out what Red others are excited to share visit Mary and her friends at Ruby Tuesday and Sue and her friends from Rednesday


  1. For a minute there I thought you guys went to are gorgeous wreaths and your geraniums must love where they are at.

  2. Love those wreaths on the gates. Geraniums are such a hardly little bloomer. Great shots.

  3. Great red shots - you are lucky to still have such beautiful geraniums!

  4. That gate looks inviting! It would be nice to be invited in to explore. :)
    Lovely geraniums!

  6. The gate IS beautiful, but I especially like your blooming geraniums....indoors, what a green thumb you must have.

  7. Lovely photographs - you can find colour everywhere (although I suspect even you would have been challenged in the blanket of white snow that descended a couple of weeks ago).

  8. Thank you everyone for all the nice comments on the geraniums. They are lovely and I so enjoy them, but, all the credit goes to the Old Salt. He is the one with the green thumb.

    I thank you all for your comments they are the icing on the cake for me.

  9. The gate with the pretty red wreaths certainly made a lovely post for today.

  10. Happy red everything. I thought those gates were from Graceland too. Until I don't see any music notes on it.
    Have a great week.

  11. I adore red geraniums, one of my absolute favorite things!

    Happy Rednesday,

  12. How nice to have geraniums blooming at this time of the year! My Mom once told me that she remembers her Grandma always having geraniums as a houseplant. I would love to have some sitting on my windowsill, but we have too many trees and unfortunately they wouldn't get enough sun!
    Happy REDnesday!

  13. I love geraniums, especially red ones. Very pretty for Christmas season.


Thank you for stopping by my site. Without your visits there would be no incentive to continue posting. So, having you here and reading your comments is the highlight of my day.

I regret that time does not always allow me to return visits to everyone who stops by, but, I will certainly do my best to get to everyone. I will definitely answer any questions you leave me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
