Why don't my flowers look like this?

Aren't they stunning? They were growing in a planter outside a function hall in Jerusalem where we attended a friend's son's Bar Mitzvah this past weekend. And some of them are even red, too. Very convenient that.

So pretty .. my window box begonias were looking a little frazzled this morning, makes me wonder what the heck went on while I was away

Mommy, I'm Home said...

Beautiful!

Carletta's Captures said...

The red and pink is striking!

Leora said...

Lovely shot. Perhaps it is easier to grow flowers in higher up Jerusalem than in sandy Tel Aviv? Though you once showed us the beautiful flowers grown in Eilat - those people are working magic.

Titanium said...

Gorgeous! Flowers just insist on showing their best face.

Janet said...

very beautiful!

reg said...

Just beautiful. This is beautiful

Felisol said...

An explosion of wonderful shades of red. Are they really begonias? I'd go for a variety of pelargonium.
They, they are my favorite summer garden flower.
Gorgeous sight anyway.

stunning! we *finally* planted our flowers yesterday and it's raining today! nothing like the colors and raindrops to brighten everything up! well done, lady!

Ralph said...

Flowers like look that way as they have a paid gardner tending to them. It is not the same in our own gardens, we don't have perfection yet we are loving with our flowers and plants. Our gardens are not for profit, but exist to our sense of beauty...

ilanadavita said...

Stunning shot. We have lovely flowers but these are exceptional.

anymommy said...

I kill all flowers in my care instantly, so yeah, I have to settle for pictures as well.

EG Wow said...

Yes, stunning is a great word for this colourful display.

Ma.links said...

Very beautiful shot.

Dimple said...

Very red! and pink! and green! Mine never look that good, either...

shiborigirl said...

Such a happy sight on a happy occasion. Nothing cheers a person up faster that colorful flowers.

Thanks for sharing them with us. :)

Jim said...

Well, Robin, my guess that it that they belong to someone else. I would say that if I were to look at yours.
Happy RT! :)

Auntie E said...

If we had a gardener our would look that that also LOL. I love how the look.. Need to plant those planters of mine.
My ruby link for you

Julia Smith said...

What Auntie E said. They'd probably love to take photos the way you do.

Dianne said...

they're very pretty
and probably look that way because the hall has pros tend to them

Poetic Shutterbug said...

No one ever thinks that red and pink meld yet this gorgeous photo that you've taken shows just how beautifully well they go together.

Paz said...

LOL! They ARE glorious-looking. Your flowers will look like that soon (and I'm sure they're already looking good). ;-)

Marice said...

The Thirteenth Crossing said...

Mine don't look like this as well. Of course, if I watered my flowers once in a while that might help. :)
