Rouges

Could anyone help me identify these? Seen in Montreuil neighbourhood. Update: thanks to Joo, I now know this is trumpet vine!

Quelqu'un peut me dire ce que sont ces fleurs ? Vues à Montreuil. Mise à jour : grâce à Joo, je sais maintenant qu'il s'agit d'une trompette de Virginie !

I have no idea what they are, but they're beautiful and I would love to have them hanging around my place!! Great capture, too! Have a great weekend, Ciel!!

It looks like bougainvillea! Beautiful colors for summer! :)

(Haha, my feet couldn't help but dance at the block part and I foolishly stuffed myself full of fresh-made pizza before I saw the delectable paella...next time :))

I don't know, but they are a lovely burst of color in this photo.

I grew up in an apartment in Queens. My wife is a Kansas farm girl. Not that it's close to France but here chances at a correct answer are way better than mine.

I think these were likely poisonous.

Randy said...

Not sure but they are beautiful.

I would only know to name it
Green and red plant vulgaris.

Cela ressemble étrangement au Honey Suckle que nous avions e Californie, les abeilles adoraient les visiter et ces arbustes un peu foufous me manquent.

@ Thérèse : je me suis demandé si ce n'était pas une sorte de chèvrefeuille mais les fleurs me semblent trop grosses.

@ Malyss & LondonLulu: I don't think they are bougainvillées.

I am absolutely ignorant about this!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Sorry, no, but I do like them very much :-)

Birdman said...

Yes! Red flowers!

Halcyon said...

I also vote for bougainvillea, although I cannot zoom in more to see the flowers more closely.

Whatever they are, they're beautiful! Love that shade of red. :)

If I could only bring the image in a bit closer Ciel, I think i could help..but not at that distance. Red always looks so amazing covering a fence.
btw. I was trying to tempt you haha!

I know it, but don't remember English name - in Polish we call it Milin Amerykański. Will try to check English name for you:)
Have a great weekend!

Lowell said...

I certainly can! They are red flowers. Ok, rouge. :-)

Actually, I think they may be bougainvillea, but I've not seen this color before.

They're nice, for sure!

It thought I knew what they were but when I enlarged it I saw that the leaves were different. It is very pretty love the red color. MB
