Beautiful Bougainvillea

Bougainvilleas might be tough, thorny plants but, when planted together, they create a stunning display. They are native to South America and flourish in warm climates. Tiny white flowers are surrounded by the clusters of brightly coloured leaf bracts for which the plants are best known. I found these beautiful bougainvilleas draped over a wall in Airlie Beach.

    • Yes, so does Mr ET. When we first moved to Darwin many years ago our home had three bougainvilleas which were growing on a trellis right across the front verandah. He gradually cut them all back to small bushes but it was dangerous work.

  2. This is one of my favorite flowers. The exquisite colors always brighten my day and make me smile. V needs to plant some for me and walk me over to them when I get too grumpy. I can not stay grumpy around bougainvilleas. πŸ™‚

  3. Hi Eternal Traveller,
    I met you on Marsha’s site. Thank you for commenting on my interview.
    In response to your post, your photos are beautiful. I’ve been trying to improve my blog photography. I’ve blogged about blog photography often.

    • Welcome Janice and thanks for visiting. Thank you too for the compliment on my photos. Blogging has made such a difference to the way I think about photography. I have learned so much and take the time now to make sure I get the best photo I can. Not long ago a friend told me she can see a big difference between the photos on early posts and the ones I publish now. Carol.

  4. In full bloom they are gorgeous, we have quite a lot in our garden as they survive the hot summers very well. I must take a photo when I’m back in Portugal (I’m in the UK for a few days cooling down!). Hope all is well with you πŸ™‚ Cath
