Bells and Bougainvillea..



Bougainvillea has to be one of the most perfect flowering creepers for hot weather conditions. The bougainvillea climbing up the framework of the new walkway that leads to the Bell Tower was flowering profusely when we were in the city on Friday. You can see the network of wires above and below ready to capture the spreading creepers that will give much needed shade in the hot summer months. This and the view down Barrack Street may be the best views of the Bell Tower when the construction in front of it is complete. That reminds me.. I have to trim the bougainvillea that is running rampant on my own fence :) Happy Monday, take care and stay safe..

  1. What a show that will be when it grows to cover the wires. It's pretty nice now.

  6. Beautiful Grace. One of the things I may miss during the summers here are all the gardens and such in the cities of the South. Not Florida, not much in flower gardens there that I found.

  8. Boougainvillea is bootiful, but drives me crazy! It doesn't last here in central Florida, although we had some on our fence at our first Ocala house and it did well for several years. But it's so hard to trim...prickly! And ours was by the pool so it feel in the pool and that created all kinds of problems. I love it in other people's yards and climbing other people's fences, though. Bootiful photos of this boogainviillea!

  10. Never let your bougainvillea get out of control, and for those not familiar with the plant, it has thorns, nasty ones and lots of them.

  14. They pop out so well against the summer sky. I'm surprised we don't have more here, since our summers can be nasty.

  15. I just love how prolifically this flower blooms, we have one up the road from us that's a vibrant red.

  16. It's looking pretty that walkway. We have two bougainvillea against the house but because they grow so fast and go over the roof my husband is always cutting them down and of course they are prickly so he keeps on saying he will remove them one day.

  21. Oh my goodness, be careful trimming that bougainvillea. I do love looking at these beautiful plants but I do not miss having to trim them. I would always end up with scratches everywhere.

  22. They're beautiful! I wish we had them!

  23. I love bougainvillea, my folks used to have huge mixture of colours in their small holding in Rhodesian days. Cheers Diane

  25. When it gets going bougainvillea can be a floral riot. It's so beautiful...especially when it's someone else's.

  26. The Summer Flower is 'Bougainvillea'.
    This tree seems to give us (the Japanese) a impression of the summer Resort.

  27. Oh my, this is just what all of us in the #BoldNorth need right now! Thank you for the beauty you capture.
