Ruby Tuesday - Flowers and Strawberries

Happy Ruby Tuesday to you! Ruby Tuesday is hosted by the Teach and it features photos with a red theme.

I've got a few shots from my patio. These are some sort of geranium. They have a very red center to the leaves, so the plant looks pretty even when there are no flowers.


Here's a strawberry. Yum..........




And another view of the strawberry.........


And a geranium. This plant is a piece off of a geranium that Mom had on her table as a decoration when my sister graduated from college 16 years ago. If you weren't already aware of it, you can easily do this with geraniums. You break off a piece of the thick part of the stem, then you bury it in some good potting soil, water it, and eventually it will root and take off. Pretty cool, don't you think?
If you would like to take part or see more Ruby Tuesday posts, take a look here.

I tried to grow strawberries once, but with no luck. Wow that's cool that your Mom has the same geranium from 16 yrs. ago!

Thanks for sharing.
