Ruby Tuesday

Running late this week, but I wanted to be a part of Ruby Tuesday so this morning I snapped a quick photo of this lovely weeping cherry tree (I think) at the entrance to Osbornedale State Park in Derby, Ct.
The sun wasn't out and the sky was that glare-y shade of white.
Below is a photo of Main Street in downtown Derby. Notice the red mulch and red traffic lights! The sky had some blue in it an hour or so later.

Visit our hostess, Mary T, at Work of the Poet to see many more photos featuring red.

How sweet to be missed! All I can say is Passover is a holiday where we (usually the women) go from slavery (in the kitchen) to freedom (we can serve noodles again). Plus, work has been good, which means less blog time.

Love, love the second photo - beautiful composition. You really captured pieces of the scene nicely, with that red mulch like a piece of a Mondrian painting. And who wouldn't love a blossoming cherry tree.

Two great shots. I love the spring atmosphere you have conveyed.

Love the tree!
I'm looking at the full lush greenery of those trees in the second shot. Beautiful! It will be soon here.
I looked for you on the list yesterday and wondered about you.

Your sring has come longer than ours..
Our cherry tree will not blossom until yet another three weeks.
I've never hear of weeping cherry, but this tree indeed is one of a kind. So beautiful.
A master piece from the creator's hand.
