Red Rose on Ruby Tuesday


Red Rose on Ruby Tuesday

This rose was growing in the rose garden about a month and half ago. I am really not sure which red rose it is but I think it might be ‘Mr. Lincoln’. Out of the 160 roses I have about 120 identified. There are a few doubles and triples of some varieties. Since I inherited the care of the garden I am not sure about some of them.

Red roses are traditionally sent as a symbol of true love and fidelity but also can mean a sign of respect or courage.

Thanks for visiting. For more Ruby Tuesday and red stuff visit the teach @

Luscious. Nothing like a red rose with a tear drop of water.

Perfect photo! Love the drop of water. I feel like if I put my nose up to my computer screen I should be able to smell the intoxicating perfume of it! Your entire blog is beautiful. I'm bookmarking it to check in often. Cheers!

This rose is gorgeous -- but I REALLY love that Dahlia down below! (I'm a huge dahlia fan!) And the lake shot up above would be PERFECT for Quilly's reflections challenge! Check it out! There's still 4 more days to play!

What an exquisite shot. As usual, I enjoyed "strolling" down the page and visiting your garden. Nice to see the Botanical Gardens which were a part of my youth along with the Bronx Zoo and a beautiful shot of Central Park at her very best.

Everyone's already said it: luscious, exquisite, gorgeous, perfect. A red rose to the nth degree. A ne plus ultra rose. And the teardrop! My hat's off to you. Thank you for sharing it with us.
