Bougenvillas~Today's Flowers 040410 and Bloomin' Tuesday











Two of my bougenvillas are in full bloom right now, my purple one and one of my red ones. I love how the red one cascades over my front fence! When I pull in the driveway every afternoon, it greets me! I planted them several years ago right next to the fence there and now I have two of the red ones that have grown up and over the fence. Bougenvillas grow extremely well here in our desert heat. In fact, they LOVE the heat! I planted the purple one right next to one of the posts on our patio, and it has now grown up the post. Today's Flowers for April 4, 2010.

I just love bougenvillas, they are so colorful! I also like the thorns on them to keep people from climbing over our fence!!
I think the red is my favorite.
Happy Blooming Tuesday..

They are beautiful! I took mine out this year and I am a little sad, although they were in a bad place so it had to be. I hope to plant them again in a more suitable home.

The bougainvilleas are beautiful! I love their papery flowers. If they were hardy here, I'd have them draped all over the place! ~~Rhonda :)

This plant is amazing. It can be shaped in any way. It's my all time favorite :-)
