Ruby Tuesday: Begonias

Small Town Reds remind me of Small Town Blues

Do you live in a small town? Do you find that more people are shopping in malls or online, so the stores in your little town are not what they used to be?

I photographed these begonias on Raritan Avenue in Highland Park last month. They remind that while we have some pretty planted flowers through volunteers and through state tax money, we still have empty stores and too many hair and nail salons. Not enough stores that one can really use. We do have a great toy store, but the bookstores disappeared, the bike shop went away, a fish shop closed, and not enough new, interesting stores move in.

To participate in Ruby Tuesday, post a photo (or more) with a little red or a LOT of red. Then visit Mary the Teach at to submit your link.
