Happy St. Patrick's Day - Ruby Tuesday

I cannot believe
just how fast my roses came
back this year and bloomed!
This one is the first
to have blossoms but there are

buds on two others.

An yet another awesome collage. You rock where collages are concerned.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you too. Big hug. :)

I looked around trying to find where you live to have roses so soon but I couldn't. Anyway, they are gorgeous!!

Such beautiful roses!

Carletta said...

A wonderful Ruby post!
You must have a really big garden. I bet it takes a lot of care to have such lovely blooms.

Your roses are gorgeous. Also wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your thankful list on the sidebar. My daughter and DIL are moving to Santa Barbara at the end of the summer for graduate school at UCSB.

Happy RT!

Lovely roses, Virginia.
Will you be doing anything special for St. Paddy's day, then? Hope it's a great day for you.

Beautiful roses and such a nice collage of them. In response to your comment, I don't actually live near Bolsa Chica. It's about a 35 mile drive for me but worth it.

Ruby Tuesday on St. Patrick's Day?! It just doesn't seem right! The roses are, however, extremely lovely!

Red and Green should never been seen - well except when Ruby Tuesday falls on St. Patrick's Day! LOL

Ivanhoe said...

I'm jealous! ;o) Mine won't be blooming for a couple more months.
Happy St. Patty's Day :o)

Amazing roses. The one on the upper right hand side seems to glow from within.

Never had much luck with roses. They must be related to gardenias, cause I'm not having much luck with those either!

Happy Tuesday,

Very lovely photos here! Too bad it wasn't a green day. Have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day!

SandyCarlson said...

Your flowers are beautiful. Happy St. Patrick's Day to you, and thanks for visiting me!

Linnea said...

Wow! That is early for roses. They are lovely and perfect for green ruby Tuesday! I like how you make those collages. I haven't taken the time yet to learn how to do them, but they certainly are creative. Enjoy the day...

Jim said...

Hi Ms. S.Teller, your roses are real pretty, so nice and red! Happy RT. Ours are out too. But the azaleas are magnificant after our recent rains.
Thanks too for your nice comment. I replied thusly:
"S.Teller, this garden was at the bottom of the hill to the left of the lake. Mrs. Jim wanted me to come (she was waiting at the bottom of the hill) the first time we were there, me with my freshly broken kneecap and all (I had just fallen down the stairs) UNTIL she saw all the blood all over me.
Instead we headed to the ER, driven by the second in charge of Powerscourt."

Dora said...

Wow! So many nice flowers. ;)

Gemma Wiseman said...

Love your collage of ruby tones and textures. Very beautiful!

Mojo said...

Nice collection, and you even mixed in a bit o' the green for St. Pat's!

EG CameraGirl said...

I'm jealous that you have roses already! I'm still waiting for crocuses here in Canada! ;-)
