I took my DSLR, a Nikon D5100, with me on a recent walk. Thank goodness! I got this photo of the front yard of a house on a nearby block. Look at all of this color from these large rose bushes!
Here's a wider view that shows the flowering trees in the parking strip. I believe that they are Kousa dogwoods.
Dogwood blossom--reminds me of an origami crane.
One more beautiful Kousa dogwood blossom.
The roses, splendid in their colors and shapes.
There are buds hiding in these blossoms. This bush is just beyond the sidewalk that goes up to the porch, easily seen in the top photo of this post. I took this photo from this perspective, intrigued by the spent blossom mixed with the still lush ones, as well as the buds peeking out here and there.
I can't get enough of these two colors side-by-side.
