Autumn's Ruby

Isn't this a glorious ruby?!  The tree-- not the fire hydrant! ;o)

Spotted this out of the picture window of the Boomarang Diner in Eufaula, Oklahoma--- my burger basket was just being served but I hopped up, ran out of the door and down the sidewalk like a wild thing to get a shot of this beautiful tree. 

The burger was still hot when I returned and the Boomarang gals didn't even blink-- they are used to my photo fits. However, the lady working in the health club next door...

To see more spectacular reds please visit Ruby Tuesday at Work of the Poet and Rednesday at It's a very Cherry World!

  2. Wow...the color takes my breath away...such a beauty!!

    LEGO art is my Ruby Tuesday today, hope you can stop by to join me!!

  3. Great shot. This tree is redder than red water pump (?? not sure the name of it, sorry) to the bottom right. It's a nice accent of this photography!!!

  4. Great shot! I also like how the fire hydrant adds a bit of whimsy.
    Love it!

  5. What a great tree, you sound like me, I just gotta get that shot. Even if my food gets cold and I look like a nutcase, I do like you did and get my camera, oh, and i live in Oklahoma too.

  6. I am not sure what type tree that is. I do know it is one lovely sight to be hold. Beautiful shot and post for today.

  7. We have a red Japanese maple in our front yard which looks similar to this. Ours still has its leaves and will be late turning as it is each year. Your is beautiful.

  8. Wow, that is beautiful!
    It makes everything feel so peaceful.

  9. That tree is glorious. Is it a Burning Bush? It's so vibrant. Happy Rednesday.

  10. Wow, that tree is a real beauty! Or is it one of those Burning Bushes? Either way, it's definitely some glorious Fall color!
    Happy REDnesday,

  11. That is beautiful !Our tress are pasting peak & soon most of their leaves will fall.

  12. Wow! It is beautiful... such a vivid color. Thanks for sharing, Annette

  13. Thanks for all the great comments! I enjoyed all of ya'lls reds too!

    I have no idea what kind of tree it is-- Guess it might be a burning bush since it looks shrubby! If I find out, I will report back.

  14. Beautiful tree! I'm so glad you shared it!
