Ruby Tuesday ~ flags and flowers

These red flags are being carried in the recessional at our daughter's commencement ceremony last week at the University of Hartford. It was difficult to see the grads. There were so many people in the audience!
The weather was perfect, with plenty of sunshine and blue skies.

This is the University of Hartford flag flying next to the state of Connecticut flag on campus.


Some geraniums I spotted on campus. I immediately thought Ruby Tuesday when I saw them. ;-)


See many photos featuring a little or a lot of red at Mary T's Work of the Poet blog.

I bet you are so proud! There must be quite a few happy people judging by the size of the crowds!

Glad you had good weather for the commencement - friend in NJ was not so lucky the previous week. Happy Tuesday!

It just looks like it was THE perfect day - something we haven't had a lot of here lately it seems like! I've got my fingers crossed that there's at least one perfect day left for Amanda's graduation in June.

If you needed red for Ruby Tuesday then NFA would be the place to get it as their colors are red and white just like the University of Hartford.

Mums are happy when their children complete their studies. My second daughter did just that and was admitted to bar last Friday.

What's your daughter going to do?

Robin said...

What a great day she had for graduation - it was boiling hot for mine, and it poured buckets on my sister's (outdoor) ceremony.

I've entered a major international photo competition (details are on my blog) and would be most grateful if you'd click through and rate my portfolio (just click on the stars at the bottom (preferably the 5th star - "fantastic" - LOL), easy peasy, no registration or personal details needed). Thanks so much!
