Yesterday we (my daughter, my eldest son, a group of volunteers, and I) picked garlic mustard weed at the Native Plant Reserve in Highland Park, New Jersey. Since our mustard weed demonstrator had red in his shirt, I can use this photo as a Ruby Tuesday post. More on yesterday’s invasive weed picking.
I will be very busy tomorrow preparing for Shavuot, a Jewish holiday in which one traditionally brings flowers into one’s home. I won’t be picking buttercups, though, but I wanted to share these pretty yellow buttercups from the Native Plant Reserve with you.

I see the red ^_^!! Happy Tuesday!
Ruby Red Tuesday
I hadn’t heard of bringing flowers into one’s home on Shavuot, only into shul. Although my father usually buys my Mum flowers before Yom Tov anyway.
Good one! These two photos are lovely examples of “natural” flowers, as opposed to those we plant and take care of.
I see the red, too. The buttercups are lovely!
I like your yellow with a red shirt showing post! I learned about flowers for your holiday too. Thank you!
Happy RT! I had food on my mind, not flowers.
Red is an earth tone, whether it is on or not on a leaf. So the shirt is a fine representation of a natural ruby, in my opinion anyway…
Hey, Leora, thanks for peeking in so soon. Thank you too for the wrong answer. They are RED HOTS! You can substiute them for cinamon sticks in sweet drinks and food.
Beautiful shot, nice selection.
My Ruby Tuesday
I like the red in your photo, and blended in a red and blue plaid, no less.
Lovely flowers, dainty and delightful.
Yes, I see the red, too! 🙂 Red and yellow actually are cool to the eyes. And such pretty weeds and flowers! That must be a fun activity you had.
My RT entry is here.
Those are very pretty blooms, I love the blue ones the most.
re: my post.. Yeah, I have to chain my dog everytime we’re outside because she could eat and eat and eat flowers lol..
Looks like someone’s shirt or cloth is red 🙂
What pretty buttercups – I remember holding them under our chin as kids to see if we liked butter :).
We did this in France too! 🙂
Ingenious capture of ‘ruby’ this week.
FLAGSHIP – Ruby Tuesday
Love seeing the special beauty of wildflowers! Buttercups seem like Nature’s children dancing in the sunlight!
the bit of red is perfect
Chag samei’ach to you and your family!
Lovely composition, Leora.
Oh, I love the buttercups!
I know it’s RT, but the yellow of those is SO uplifting!
My husband has a shirt just like this one!
You found just enough red to make the pic eligible for RT!
I like how you captured the mustard weed spikes. Nice photo.
I love the buttercups. And like Robin we used to do the same thing as kids – hold them under our chins to see if we liked butter.
Ah, the memories!
Just caught up on your blog. It’s always so enjoyable, if I had the time I would comment on most of your posts… I love the Moses/G-d, milk and meat joke and tell it all the time to illustrate a point. I recently told it to Liat’s friend whose father is a Rabbi (and a serious one!). She told it to her father, and reported back to me that he loved it and planned on using it in the future.
And I love the one about Eliyahu HaNavi and Shavuot. I told it to my daughter, and my husband had to explain it to her. I don’t think she quite got it.
I try to entertain… there’s enough sorrowful stuff out there.
I like this shoulder shot. I kept waiting for her to move to find out who i was. 😉
dear leora, i saw your comment at mary t’s
it took me quite a while to find your ruby tuesday post but here i am..i would so love to read your other posts but do you have to be a member?
i hope so much that the goldens, my maiden name are part jewish..my dad was adopted but his real name was goodson.
what a privilege it is for you to be a jew…you are one of god’s chosen children..how great can THAT be, eh?
well you are so right that mustard seed is not red but that nice shirt on the demonstrator just does the trick!!!
leora..i want to tell you that tuesday may 25th is mary t’s birthday..maybe it would be special if you mention it, eh?
take care and god bless you from terry,a ruby tuesdayer in southern ontario, canada..
The buttercups are so lovely. Nothing like wild flowers. I hope you had a wonderful shavuot celebration.
