Floral Fridays - Bougainvillea







I'm taking part of Floral Friday (yes i know this is up late but i had a hard week of activities. Forgive me?) This is my nation's national flower. It comes in so many colours: orange, yellow, white, purple, pink, red. I will try o get some shots of the many different colours for you to see next week, if you're interested? We've been known to call them 'hard times' flowers because they seem...well they seem to just whether the weather surivive and not just survive but thrive. By the way? They are that bright, i've done nothing to the photos except blur the first slightly.

I got these shots as i had a end of school term session with my staff. It's offically summer for my students and my fellow teachers! As for me? I'm still doing summer classes....

Cry me a river.

Peace. Love. Survive and Thrive!

  3. Bougainvillea are such pretty flowers and when they are covering an ochre facade of stucco, well, then it's time to get the paint brush and easel out! Lovely pictures of your pink bougainvillea!

  7. The bougainvillea is so beautiful and love the pretty colour. My parents used to grow this over a trellis and made a pretty show.
    Happy day
