Spring bougainvillea

For all you freezing people in the Northern Hemisphere, here's a spring shot to help warm your poor chilled bones. With the help of more than usually abundant rain, we've had the most beautiful Spring and the bougainvillea is one plant that's been even more glorious than usual.

Wow that's a beauty, stunning shot of it too with all the green to set it off.

Gorgeous! It must be nice to be able to plant it in the ground like that.. My mother has one about that big, but it winters in her garage, lol..

@becparker @helenmoss Thanks, very much. @hinhoutbay It's so blazingly wonderful this year; I keep taking shots of it everywhere I go. Must be the excess rain. @buggus Oleta, thanks. Yes, it's almost a weed here, it grows so rampantly. Have to keep cutting it back.

Think you're right! The bougainvilleas around here also seem to be extra colourful this year.

PS.- this would be perfect for the vivid colours theme this week!

@helenmoss Thanks Helen. Hadn't caught up with that one yet. Will tag.

@helenmoss Don't think I'd qualify as I took it on 26th. Never mind, will have to find another one. Shouldn't be too hard!

Very thoughtful of you, sending us a warm, pretty photo to help us get through the chilly days! Beautiful!

Nice shot and yes It sure is freezing here!

These are my favorite trees...their color is so amazing. Sadly it is too cold here to grow them. My uncle who lives in Florida has about 30 of them on his property and I love how much they change the color and view of the yard when they are in full bloom....they are miraculous!

Thanks for this little bit of spring in my otherwise autumn life.

Must be one of the most beautiful bougainvillea plants I have ever seen-just spectacular.

This tree-like bougainvillea is really beautiful! I've tried to prune the one in my yard, but I always find a humming bird nest. Nice shot!
November 30th, 2010  
Well, there's one benefit to all the rainfall...this is simply spectacular!! That bougainvillea is absolutely saturated in color. So beautiful to look at as we're now stuck in post leaf autumn.
