Ruby Tuesday

Today is
Ruby Tuesday and time to post something with a little or a lot of RED. Come join us by clicking here. Mary, thanks for hosting each week.
Son John and his pet snake Scalia. Scalia is a Ball Python.

Here is John, one happy son of mine, enjoying the Santiam River last summer near Salem, Oregon.

I love geraniums, can't wait to start my planting this Spring.

Have a great Ruby Tuesday, and remember for St. Patrick's Day next week it will be GREEN instead of RED.

It's always nice to see photos of happy children! And...uh... happy snakes! ;-)

Thanks for the blog visit. I like the idea of a bulb show where you can buy bulbs. The ones I go to are at the colleges and it's free to go into the greenhouse. I'll keep my eyes open for the type you describe you go to in Oregon.

Happy Ruby!

I like the joy of life your pictures display, be it children, flowers or
ad signs.
A happy Tuesday to all of you

There is nothing like a boy and his snake..That is a very cool pet to have I think.. As long as I wouldn't have to feed it live food or any food that looked like any other critters that I like..well..I guess I won't be getting a snake. But for a 14 year old..Cool...

He's a brave boy to keep a snake as a pet. :)

What's that fruit? Apple?

Columbo said...

That's no apple, it is the planter that the geranium grew out of (bottom).
