Summer lovin' bougainvillea..




Yesterday's post was all about colourful explosions of the man made kind.. today it's a vibrant burst of mother nature's glory! If it hadn't been for the splendiferous mass of summer lovin' Bougainvillea hanging over the red brick wall this old lane-way sprinkled with graffiti in Mount Lawley would have looked a wee bit sad on a hot, humid day. Several bougainvillea and hibiscus in my garden never disappoint in the colour they reward me with at this time of the year. Happy Friday, take care and stay safe...

  1. Gorgeous photos! Love these plants. In south Florida they are ubiquitous. We had some at our first house in Ocala, but they finally froze one winter and were no more. It gets just a tad too cold to ensure their ongoing survival in central Florida.

  9. Grace, I do not know why the computer-gods punish me. I have such a hard time posting on your blog. After I type my comments, the computer screen freezes. Only on your site!!

  14. With the strong wind today the ground will be littered with colour! BTW are you going to the opening of "Betty's Jetty"?

  15. Very flashy looking, Grace. They look especially fine against that formal brick wall. In Florida we see bougainvillea all the time against stucco walls. It is not the same.

  21. I love bougainvillea, but I'm never sure how to pronounce it. Fortunately, it doesn't grow in our part of the world so I'm spared the embarrassment...

  27. These are gorgeous and remind me of our yard in Florida. We had hedges of bougainvillea. It is such a beautiful plant and the blooms are out of this world.
