Bouganvilla (Skywatch Friday)

The calendar may not say SUMMER, but the bouganvilla and the clouds do!
See my bouganvilla against the night sky's Full Flower Moon HERE.

More Skywatch photos can be found at Wigger's World. Check them out!

This is an AWSOME post and photo!!! Loved it!!!!! In Portugal we call them «Bouganvilias». I have one, but because of daily climate changes (one day is winter, the next day is hot as in the desert, the other day is winter again, etc) it is drying a lot! I wish she survives!!

Gosh that is some flower.

It is early in the morning here in Brookville, Ohio and already a muggy 75 degrees with 92 expected.

Both pictures are nice. I cant seem to get those to grow.

Chris said...

Love this shot, too. As I said on the other shot, I may have to try to plant one here.

That is gorgeous. I am not familiar with this flower, so thanks for teaching me!

Very fine composition!

To fog or not to fog: that is the question.

Beautiful! Bougainvilla always reminds me of the Mediterranean Sea and the South of France. :)

Very few plants do I enjoy more than a bouganvilla and your excellent photo takes me right back to my southern roots. Thanks for sharing, Rambling.

I can't believe how quickly Selma has arrived at summer and we in Australia at winter. I'm looking out at red berried and fallen oak leaves and cloudy skies. Quite cool today too with some rain on its way (hooray).
I love bougainvilleas. Bougainville of course is in Papua New Guinea but has a very violent history in the last 20 odd years. We can grow bougainvilleas in Adelaide. They do well in our hot summers too.

Oh, so the name comes from Papua NG? Beautiful picture. We have the flower here in Israel too.
Happy almost-summer!
