Ruby Tuesday: Red White Blue

I photographed these red carnations, white petunias and blue lobelia outside a florist in Highland Park a little before the Memorial Day Parade.

I enjoyed seeing “Uncle Sam” in attendance at the Israel Day Parade in New York City.

Ellie says

Floral shops are treasure islands of color - carnations - such a strong survivors!

Ilana-Davita says

I like the angle of your first shot. Funny Uncle Sam: very patriotic looking.

Ellie says

Just finished the mushroom - hubby approved - thank you - it is going to be success for dinner! I'll try to take a picture with my lousy camera :)

Hooray for the red, white and blue! The patriotic flower arrangement is a stylish view of three important colors. The hat is just about right for this view between the two holidays Memorial Day and July 4. I like the stars and stripes at the Israel Day Parade. A nice view of a wonderful relationship!

Carletta says

I agree - nice angle on the flower shot.
Great hat - Ralph's right - July 4 is coming soon.
Your flower shot would make a nice postcard for the day. :)

Leora says

Yes, I thought about waiting until July 4th to show it. But I figured by then I would find something else...and I have more of these same flowers, anyway, at other angles.

Paz says

Beautiful reds!


Jew Wishes says

I love the tones, red white and blue, and the patriotism behind the second photo.

The flower photo is lovely...with the wonderful perspective.

Gorgeous! I love the flowers, such rich colors.
And at first glance it looked like it was by a beach where the sidewalk was sand and the street was the ocean.
