Ruby Tuesday

Ah, such beautiful two-tone October foliage on this tree I spotted last week in the Ansonia (Ct.) Historic District.
All the wires? Not so much. But necessary in our world. When this blue house, known as the Blakeslee House, was built in 1712, no one ever dreamed of electricity, or blogs. ;-)
Perish the thought.

Well there is not much Ruby-ness in this photo, but there are some red leaves and a red door peeking out from the lower right-hand corner. I usually have a bit more red in my Ruby Tuesday posts.
See more photos featuring shades of red at Mary T's Work of the Poet.

Beautiful capture M'lady! Alas for the wires, but using a fireplace for light and heat before electricity is a throwback to the past that I would prefer to stay there - the wires as compromise...

I see that autumn has arrived, Patti! The tree is such a gorgeous one, too.

Hehehe! Ralph is so funny! Love his comment.

That's one of the things I love about the sub-division where my Yellow house is - underground electric! No unsightly wires. Not to mention the added bonus of no downed wires in storms!

Love the deep blue sky in this shot, too!

Big hugs :]

Very pretty! I love the orange that's popping out next to the green!

All of those wires are definitely a blessing and a curse and I keep wishing that New England would get smart and start burying the lines like they do in California. Not only would it protect the wires from ice damage in the winter but it would make our lives as photographers SO much easier!
