Red Rose and Yellow Sunflower

Make Time for Small Reflections

In my neighbor's yard
grow these lovely blossoms that
I have photographed

New to my yard ... these
potted blossoms came my way
when somebody moved

leaving them behind.
Yes, that is my bare foot print
on my patio

Sunflower and rose—
neighbors in backyard garden,
nodding in the sun.

My Mellow Yellow

I don't have any plants at my highrise apartment, so I'm always looking at my neighbour's potted plants at the corridor!

Carletta said...

I love the two juxtaposed beside each other in both photos!

Ralph said...

The red and the yellow really stand out in hat sea of green. The planters are a nice accessory, allowing you to change the character of the whole scene just by simply relocating them. Nice!

Hi There, Love the picture of the sunflower and the rose... Neat!!!!! AND--you were lucky to get those two new plants in the pots. Can't wait to see them after they grow up!!!!!

Hope you are doing fine. We've had 7 days of rain.

That is a very appealing photo. The two flowers are so striking in that garden. I love the editing...I want to keep gazing at them.

Red and yellow flowers side by side makes the perfect color combination :)

LadyFi said...

Love the bright splashes of colour the plants make... and that footprint is so delicate!

I'm glad you gave the potted flowers a new home. I can see how happy they are. The neighbors garden is beautiful too. Isn't it wonderful to be surrounded by such beauty.
Thanks for the visit. Glad you liked my Yellow Mushrooms in the Garden.
Hugs and blessing to you also.

Growing flowers in pots is a great way to have a garden no matter where you live.

Hootin' Anni said...

Is that a sunflower? They are one of my favourite flowers. Love the richness of the red and yellow blooms...someone put a pot of pale yellow chrysanthemums on our step but they don't look anywhere as good!
Lovely RT pictures....mine's up too.

Linnea said...

Great color contrast. I swear...it looks like those two flowers are talking to each other!!

Stephanie V said...

Very fresh color contrasts with the dark earth in the pots. And your quotes are as interesting as your photos. Thanks for the visit yesterday.

Robin said...

Beautiful flowers but what I really love is the footprint - a subtle yet compelling reminder of humanity in the midst of development.

DeniseinVA said...

You took some beautiful photos of your neighbor's yard. I'm sure she loved those photos just as I did. Thanks for sharing them with Today's Flowers.
