Bloomin' Tuesday

Recently my husband and I were in southern California. It's so beautiful there, and I love being surrounded by flowers throughout the year. I was especially struck by the beauty of the bougainvillea, which were in full bloom. They have such a lovely, delicate blossoms -- definitely one of my favorites. I often put them in containers on our patio for the summer in Colorado, but in warmer climes they flourish with abandon. On one of our early evening walks I took some photos of the colorful bougainvillea that was planted at the base of palm trees and in big, beautiful urns. The colors included hot pink, pale pink, salmon, gold, and orange -- so pretty...

I have had one in the ground for years, it grows very big each year but never colors....It is one plant that really thrives on neglect and ours get too much water from the sprinkler. Beautiful photos. Darla

Gorgeous! I wish we could have flowers year round, but alas we must settle for snowflakes instead.
