Mad dogs and englishmen go out in the midday sun..........


There's something about a hot day that makes me go a little loco, some may say even more than usual! While a lot of Perthites would have been chilling at the beach yesterday despite the 'issues' (understatement!) we've been having with sharks lately, I chose instead to head out to the nursery and buy up big on Bambino Bougs  (Bougainvillea), and by 'buy up big' I mean I bought five, go mad! Bougainvillea is ideal for the hot, dry climate in Perth and this mini version, minus thorns, will be fabulous in pots and hanging baskets, I'm aiming for the 'Mediterranean' look this year, lets see how that works out! I'm heading out early in the morning to go to the camera market, on the look out for some fun lenses for my Pentax, whatever you are doing today (Sunday), enjoy. Take care.....

  5. They are beautiful, it is so funny you do the opposite as we. Here it is suddenly freezing cold and we have to get the plants in side.

  6. They are such stunning colours. I didn't know they normally had thorns though.

  7. I love your header and your city. I didn't know you could get Bougainvillea without thorns. They are such colourful plants. My neighbour has one so I can enjoy the colour without having to deal with cutting it back.

  9. Beautiful bougainvillea! While Perthites were enjoying the sunshine, I've been incurring frostbite attempting to plant winter pansies in my sad, autumnal garden today...

  12. Those plants work well here in the desert southwest too! I have several in my back yard and am thinking of adding a few to the front as well.

  13. We have them in our garden and there are rarely three days passing without having to get the blossoms together once falling.
    Yes, great colour they own. Always a joy. Still above 20C over here. Please have you all a good Sunday.

  14. But do Aussies?

    Thorns, sharks, dangers abound in Perth. It's getting cold here, but not not dangerous like what's approaching the Northeast of the US tonight.
