I like the contrast here between the red blossoms of the Valerian plant and the clear blue sky (really works to make the blossoms visually "pop" in the picture) and there is the added plus of the textural component with one having the sense that they could reach right into the image and feel the roughness of the brick and mortar.

This plant appears to glow in walls almost everywhere. Against the blue sky it makes a great shot.

This appears to be a study of survival of the fittest. And this Valerian plant is definitely a survivor.

Sometimes plants seem to grow better from walls or chimneys. Great contrasts Vic,
