White and Hot Pink

This (unidentified) bloom was captured in a charming village in Brittany - the petals remind me somewhat of a fuschia, but not the overall flower shape (perhaps someone would be kind enough to enlighten me on its name?)
 


and this (also unidentified) one was snapped in the gardens of Little Moreton Hall in Cheshire, England

 
Since I enjoy colour contrasts, couldn't resist posting these two!

Isn't Little Moreton Hall a real gem. I think that flower is a peony from what I can see of the leaves. Don't recognise the first one but you don't need the name to enjoy the beauty.

I have so many flowers labelled as 'unknown' I think I could publish a book with them!!

Love that first white flower, but sorry, I can't help you identify it. It's a very nice shot!

That white flower is from one of my favourite shrusbs: Exocorda macrantha 'The Bride'.
