The pretty red one with the feathery foliage is a dwarf Poinciana, or common name is Pride of Barbados. It blooms all summer here, nearly 8 months of the year in fact, and grows into a lovely small tree or a large shrub depending upon how you prune it. It will lose its leaves in the winter.

The other may be one of several wonderful yellow blooming shrubs/trees. Could be yellow Tabebuia, or Mandevilla, or Senna or a couple of others. Could you please take some closer photos of the flowers and post them?

I agree, #1 looks to be Pride of Barbados (Caesalpinia pulcherrima)
#2 I'm not certain but it reminds me of Esperanza (Tecoma stans)

I agree with the ID's. I'm surprised that they make it in your climate! Are you in a banana belt in Michigan?

As a general rule, when you see something outside, it's helpful to note the geographic area in the request. I do a lot of bird, insect, and arachnid identification, and distinguishing between two similar sparrows, for example, often comes down to a combination of season and geographic location. Spiders are even more significant, especially if you want a species or sub-species.

If you're in Michigan and you're posting a Texas plant, the poor experts will bang their heads because they're "sure" they're "right", but they can't be since it doesn't exist there. ;)

I say "outside" because houseplants (or birds in an aviary, spiders in your luggage) are usually transplants from some far-off exotic land, so where they end-up is rarely diagnostic in the ID.
