Ruby Tuesday ~ Oct 13, 2009

~~~

It's Ruby Tuesday again and time to show some of the Reds in our own little spot of the world!




Visit Mary/The Teach to find other Ruby Tuesday posts!

From my world today...


These 2 kinds of flowering vines are troublesome but pretty- and the butterflies and hummingbirds love them ~ so we just let them grow LOL ~ not that they are ever that easy to contain anyway!

I don't know the name of the orange flower...but the bright red one is called 'Cypress Vine.'

My mom always called it "Little Stars" plant. She remembered from her childhood in Alabama that her own mom loved this little plant. The small flowers are star shaped and a bright red and bloom profusely. The foliage, too, is very attractive with a frilly look to it!

The other little flowering vine is equally pretty...well, almost as...! :) They grow and mingle in my gardens, side by side ... almost taking over before the summer's end...but - Oh - they are pretty!



This next one is a type of Jasmine...not positive but I believe it's 'Star Jasmine!'
(I should look it up!)
It grows next to the back of our house and I like the contrast of the white flowers against the red brick!




Enjoy your autumn days!

Love,
Junie

They do look star like. :)
Nicely framed shot that last one - the flowers are indeed inhanced by the color of the brick.
Hope you had a great Ruby Tuesday!

Pretty flowers for RT. I agree that the white star blooms contrast well against the brick.

I really liked the autumn decoration with all the pumpkins on your other blog..is that your house?

Happy Ruby Tuesday ~

Congrats on your RT prize!

I thought I left a comment but now I am not so sure what happened. Your flowering vines are very pretty. I say any plant that attratcs hummingbirds is a keeper. Thanks for sharing and congrats on winning MaryT contest.
