A Show of Colour
Bougainvillias are in full flower right now and they are found in along every narrow lane, up every set of steps. The colours are gorgeous
This is the bougainvillia outside my daughter's house. A beautiful show of colour but I'm glad it's not ours. Every autumn it has to be trimmed. The thorns are long and deadly, the pruning laborious and painful.
This bougainvillia is across the road from my daughter. It is a new breed, no thorns. It blooms all year but the flowers in winter are nowhere near as luscious
