Ruby Tuesday - Running for the roses

Ruby Tuesday, fun in red, returns. Our many scanned prints of the past offer ruby in many iterations.


To our left is the older of our two children, Allegra. We are in the first summer at our home in the Ansonia Uplands in 1991.


Our daughter is maybe 30 months in age, wearing a pink shirt that says I Am the Big Sister, which she was to brother Cameron around 7 months. So she is the older and presumably wiser of the pair...


The roses off the patio were prolific back then, The red is brilliant either due to the sun of the day or the degradation of the print. Nevertheless, the meme theme is preserved, if not the platinum blonde hair of the day...See many rubies at Mary's site!

The roses are pretty... but she is a thousand times more beautiful.

I do love seeing your old photos..and when I am cleaning house and come across a photo album of olden times, my housework goes on hold until, usually, the next day.:)
I love looking at photos and remembering.
I hope Patti is feeling ok..I notice she hasn't posted yet today....
O, and guess what!! No strawberries in my post today. :)

What a precious little blond daughter. Love the way she is standing there for you to take the picture. Love the title you gave it. Such a dear portrait. Genie

Makes you wistful looking back, doesn't it, Ralph?

I’M FOND OF CERISE

For red my affection is great,
It’s puce and chartreuse that I hate.
I’m fond of cerise,
It makes a nice piece
Of clothing that looks just first-rate.

Takes me back to summertime at my grandparent's house. They had roses on a fence. They were soft pink.
These sure are beautiful!
I wonder if Allegra wishes she still had platinum curls. :)

I agree with BJ, she is the most beautful rose of all.

Very cute photo of Allegra. It is such a great idea to have digitalized all your old photos.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Allegra has the most beautiful, quizzical expression on her face! I think her arm action helps that impression! And the roses beautifully frame her!

Dianne said...

she was beautiful then and is beautiful now
I love her tousled hair

Liz said...

So pretty. And I also like her tousled hair. Is that dirt on her left cheek?

Red roses for a pink lady. Those were the best years of our lives, even though we were to busy to understand.I am glad you are such a good reminder to make me once more relive the high peaks of my mom and daughter life.
(Allergra is just half a year younger than my Rose).
Have a wonderful summer week.
