Ruby Tuesday

IMG_7420

On this very last day of September 2008 I'm strangely, at the moment, all out of words - at least the more inspired ones - so I thought it would be a perfect excuse (if you need one, which you of course don't) to make a go at the weekly Ruby Tuesday-event. I like red, the mother of pink, details and photography so what's not to like about such a theme...?

It's got to be the first time for everything, hence this is my first Ruby Tuesday post and I've pondered what to post, I do have some red holiday favourites, but then there's autumn with its abundance of red nuances... And that typical Swedish red with white corners wooden house...

And red cats, and red flowers and red shops... I think I'll settle with Sweden in pretty autumnal shroud (the pretty tree above stands at *my* parking lot, so I can enjoy its seasonal changes everytime I'm on my way to the bus) - have a good Ruby Tuesday!

Pia, these photos are wonderful! Are your trees turned already? The RED houses are gorgeous! Welcome to Ruby Tuesday! Thanks for joining us! :)

Ah, you are in Sweden... the trees are changing now, I see! Here in NY our trees haven't changed yet! :)

Pia K said...

Thanks, the teach!

Our Swedish summer was sadly very short and autumn began earlier than usual in August. I love all seasons, but I'm far from fond when they intrude on and overrun on their predecessor...:/ However all the colours right now are of course gorgeous!

Welcome to Ruby Tuesday! Your first posts are wonderful! I love the house and the tree is gorgeous. We will not have such beauty this fall as it have been too dry. Stop by and say hello.

I love red plank houses like this. Lovely shots.

Thanks, Lucy, here we have been *blessed* with an overabundance of rain the last month or so, at least that has produced all these gorgeous colours...:)

Thanks, Mimi!

Pia, thanks for joining us for Ruby Tuesday. Our trees here in Salem, Oregon, are just starting to change. I love your photos and all the reds. Have a great Ruby Tuesday.

Thanks for stopping by, columbo, and for your kind words!

I have a tree at the cottage just like that first shot. It's not much to look at during most of the year and then - all of a sudden - it's the tall red queen of the garden.

Yet another thing that's great about nature, Per, however brief, still pretty much everything has its time of gloriousness.

Ohh I cant get enough of the fall leaves. I love the quaint little house.

Yes they're amazing in colours, ~just me~, thanks for stopping by!
