you need to take closer photos... at the stem, at the flower, at the leaves.

I agree My ID's at this point would be "something pink, something green, something with white flowers". I won't hazard a guess because the plants are too far away and you haven't told us where they are growing.

Hmr4764,
The image is too small and shows no detail.

Let's start over, okay?
First of all, where did you find the image? I see it all over the internet.
Why not walk around your own neighborhood at the appropriate season) and take your own photos of something that pleases your eye. It's best to use a digital camera, rather than a phone camera, and upload the images at the highest resolution possible. That way, we can zoom in and look for details in the images.

Second, where do you live (city/state/region/country) and what style is your house? In the front of your house do you have sun or shade? Are there any limitations such as zoning regulations or Homeowners' Association, etc.? Are there any watering restrictions?

Third, who will be selecting, buying, planting and maintaining the plants?

Lastly, we have a forum here on NGA named Plant ID. When you come back with better photos, please consider posting on the Plant ID forum where it will be seen by more folks who are eager to identify plants.

Thank You!

Hi & welcome! My input is in regard to your weekends. Before putting any shrub against your home, under a window, beside a walkway, ask yourself, "How often do I want to spend time pruning and trimming this shrub to maintain it at a certain size?" If your answer is in the range between "not very often" to "never," then please look at images of mature specimens to see if they will soon or eventually be much too large for the spot for which they are being considered. Wasting weekends "mangling the green meatballs" and hauling brush to the curb or a compost or burn pile because the shrubs are constantly getting too big is a horrible way to spend many of the weekends during the time you will live in your home, unless that activity happens to sound like your idea of a fun way to spend a weekend or paying someone else to do.

Maybe he/she is buying plants and good quality pruning shears. Shrug!

The white feathery plant on the left looks like Astilbe. The pink on the right might be Azaleas. Both need filtered shade. The green blobs behind the pink could be boxwood. They can be in sun or part shade. The large shrub on the left could be something like English Laurel. If you want to have plants that work for your area, bring that picture to a reputable nursery and ask them what they would recommend to get that look... and keep in mind Tiffany's advice when plant shopping.
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.

The OP gave us a photo found on the internet, has not let us know where he/she lives, has not shown a photo of his/her house, and has not been back to provide more information.

For whatever reason, sometimes people do not want to keep talking about it, or are unable to. Some people might expect to come back in a few weeks, some in a few hours, some in a few months, some just want to read the responses & think quietly. I have done all of the above, for various reasons.
