It’s time to visit Mary at Work of the Poet for Ruby Tuesday.
All my Ruby sightings were at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, California. The Getty Museum sits on top of a hill overlooking the Los Angeles Basin and the Pacific Ocean.
In this shot my ruby is on the right. I’ll show close ups of these large bougainvillea plants.
I think it’s really cool how they are shaping these plants.

This Pomegranate tree was growing in the sunken garden area. I’ll leave you with a couple shots of Ruby from inside the Museum.
I’ll be posting some window shots and more outdoor shots from the Getty Museum later this week. Thanks for stopping by and Happy November everyone…
Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

What a great ruby post, Ellen! I like the Sunken Garden, the tapestry and the Adoration picture!
That is so cool how they are shaping those plants…and I’m curious what the well trimmed hedge bushes are? Wondering if the whole thing will turn red….very cool garden area.
What wonderful shots!
I love the bougainvillea ‘trees’ – what an awesome idea. They are lovely.
Your inside shots are gorgeous.
Really nice rubies Ellen!
The Getty Center is an awesome place!
Wonderful shots! I understand that this museum is a wonderful place. It’s on my list to visit when I visit that area.
We don’t necessarily get the artist and his intent in a vacuum – you need to go to a museum first. And this is a gem! The skyline below qualifies as artistic. The maze of shrub is wonderful, nice rubies in the sunken garden and the interior art is stunning. A beautiful museum with wonderful art in a fantastic setting – a wonderful day!
Lovely structures! Great entry for Ruby Tuesday! 🙂
So beautiful. Love that sunken garden!
These are just beautiful 🙂
It is a great Ruby Tuesday post. I love the tour. I especially love the bougainvillea and the trellis?
Wow…..this is one amazing array of museum photos!!! They let you photograph indoors? Cool. So many places now a days won’t allow indoor photography.
Mine’s posted. “I came, HE SAWED, we conquered.”

Excellent photo set.
I have never had the time to visit the Getty museum when I’ve been in town on business. Maybe some day I’ll stop and smell the roses. Happy RT.

I have never seen a pomegranate tree before. How wonderful. love the views of all the rubies you found.
Beautiful series. The photos of the garden are particularly stunning.
Hi Ellen, You have outdone yourself with such wonderful pictures … I have enjoyed my visit here and hearing the history with the shots…. thanks for sharing with us. Hugs, Baba
Beautiful pics. I love the last one, and the pomegranate tree and the third one oh I like them all.
Simply BEAUTIFUL glimpses of this marvelous place. Thanks for sharing the reds after the blues 😉
Hugs and blessings,
Gorgeous shots. I love the sunken garden!
Those are nice garden pictures and a pretty teaser of the inside. Were you supposed to take pictures inside? A lot people aren’t.
Happy RT! It’s been a while. We both are still around. 🙂
The Getty Museum allows you to take photos inside if you have your flash turned off…
The Adoration of the Magi painting is just a brilliant compostition. I would love a print for my own nativity gallery. Thanks for sharing the caption text.
Magi with your gifts,
bowing down before the Child,
look into His eyes.
My Ruby Tuesday
Wow. Love that pomegranate tree. I had no idea that is what it looked like.
