Ruby Tuesday ~ Pears


My pears are just beginning to grow and at this stage they are a nice ruby color. They will end up being green with some golden added in but for today they are just right for Ruby Tuesday.

Please visit Mary at Work of the Poet who is the hostess for this weekly meme.

For those of you who wonder why a meme for Tuesday starts on Monday, it’s because most of these memes are international and somewhere out there it’s Tuesday already!

  1. I haven’t yet seen the pear at the beginning of the process, just at the end at a market. The tiny blossoms don’t seem possible to mature into a delicious fruit. Interesting that the stalks under the blossom have the ruby shape of a pear, but merely inverted. Neat!

  2. How lovely – to begin as such a bright red. I used to have a pear tree, as a child – I didn’t pay much attention until they were ripe.

  3. I never realized they go from red to green, if anything I’d have guessed the opposite were true. Very cool.

    I’ve entered a major international photo competition (details are on my blog) and would be most grateful if you’d click through and rate my portfolio (just click on the stars at the bottom (preferably the 5th star – “fantastic” – LOL), easy peasy, no registration or personal details needed). Thanks so much!

  4. they’re so pretty at this stage
    I used to think theywere some sort of berry until I went to a garden show and actually learned a bit

    love the composition of your shot

    congrats to you and your brother and his wife on the arrival of their Hope!!
    my Hope sends hugs šŸ™‚

  5. ellen, thanks for posting that explanation about why a Tuesday meme starts on Monday! It makes me happy so many people across the globe participate in Ruby Tuesday!

    I didn’t know pears were RED first before they turned green…
