I give you red from northern Minnesota in anticipation of another snow filled winter [something I am loathe to think about.] These vehicles advertise for a company called Mattracks in Karlstad that manufactures rubber track conversion kits.

From the silly clever to the reds in the summer annuals on my deck. Above are the little, sliver-y blooms on a Nectarine Sage plant on the left, and below a cherry -red geranium decked out for the Fourth of July to come.

Have fun visiting Mary's meme for more reds.

Love your flowers! I still haven't finished getting my flower garden together.

Disorganization rules around here!

Happy Ruby Tuesday ~

How pretty are all the blooms! Love a bright summer garden.

The Minnesotans of Swede, Finn and other Scandinavian descent are a hearty bunch - snow is no impediment. More so, traversing the Mesabi range in this ruby tracked vehicle makes winter fun (sort of:)

Happily, small rubies in summer flora allow us to forget the previous winter season. The Land-o-Lakes we see in their extremes!

Peacock Blue--what a pretty title. Thanks for coming by my blog and becoming a follower. You have some lovely flower photos too, and some great quotes. I'll be back frequently! You do live where it is VERY cold in the winter,but I'm sure the summers are lovely. Mickie :)

I'm NOT looking forward to winter and I'm sure my southern Illinois winter is nothing like yours. I'm glad I don't need one of those conversion kits. Love the flowers. I think the winter makes us appreciate them more. Enjoy summer!
