Ruby Tuesday - Lavender is a ruby (sort of...)


Ruby Tuesday is here, and our computer situation is not sorted out yet. We are using a unit from the computer room that Cameron has to return to the U-of-H soon. Therefore, I use my work MacBook and look for rubies stored therein. Well, subtlety in my choice of ruby is at work here. The wildflowers sitting in the cape grasses are lavender in hue. My mind says that purple is blue and RED, and lavender is slightly lighter than that. So despite the view being the mostly Nantucket Sound blue, I offer a bit of ruby (of sorts). Happy RT!

Oh, they look lovely! I love lavender. You mean I get away with lavender for a ruby theme? They look like purple thistle. Great against the sea.

Lavender is my favorite too.
I have some in my garden in various shades.
One might call one them lavender ruby, I agree.
Besides I spot some red down at the left side.
Don't forget,now is harvesting time for lavender. Dry lavender will supply wonderful fragrance for a year.

That violet sky is gorgeous and the sea is so peaceful /or the ocean I should say/. Lovely perspective - perfect spot to showcase this view! Also, thank you for the beautiful words about that thorny flower - I couldn't tell it better - you found the right words!

I love this capture of beauty. I can envision them blowing gently in the breeze. They do look like thistles, but I take your word for it.

Very creative explanation, Ralph. And hey! Under the circumstances it works for me. ;-)

Jim said...

Ralph, you did good! That is such a pretty picture with bits of red, not. Almost.
I heard a saying Sunday that 'done is better than perfect.'

Happy RT! I have a MidWeek Blues post on today. No RT. It was too late when I got done with it. I am saving the RT for next week.
