cascading blossoms
washing over old stone stairs—

Beautiful river of ruby red blooms!

Ralph said...

It's like a magenta waterfall, the bubbling and swirling not at all water - merely beauty falling from heaven...

Stunning how lush they are and that vibrant blue sky is a lovely contrast!

A blossom dream I shall probably never see in real life. Such a joy to share beauty in the ruby blog world. My special window to the world.

Carletta said...

Magical Mystical Teacher - I've tried commenting on your individual blog but it doesn't seem to be taking my comments. :(
It is an equally lovely composition!

a beautiful cascade... glad I was able to find a new host for RT. I was kinda sad to know that RT has ended. I have not been blogging for a while. Now that I am back my first thought was to join RT since it's Tuesday here.. Glad to know there's part 2 of this joyful meme.

Ann said...

are these bouganvillea? Had a bush when I was 6, we pretended them to be wedding bouquets, my sis was 4, and the bride, until one day, the thorns pierced my sis, and mum banned us.
