fun times

This weekend was bustling with activity in the Twin Cities [a visit from Pres. Obama, opening game of the Vikings and the U of M Gophers] and not the least of which a small 'fall festival' at a local church near our apartment. This usually means that the car collectors cruise around and park where they can be seen during the festivities. Thus the gorgeous blue Chrysler sporting a reflection of the red Barracuda next to it. Groovy, I thought.What's Ruby Tuesday without some red flowers? I snapped these variegated blooms in this garden at Loyola University in Chicago. I've never seen anything quite like them.

Ha! you're right, there are often lots of red flowers posted for Ruby Tuesday. And all lovely, I might add.

I like how you captured the reflection of the red car in the car next to it.

Happy RT!

Love that you used the word groovy with the reflection - all that swirling color is like a Peter Max painting! Quite cool.
The flowers are lovely too.

I love church festivals I could work my way across the country and write a book about their differences ...
