Bougainvillea in Evergreens: Flower of the Day, July 23, 2017

I’ve know bougainvilleas to grow to the top of huge Norfolk Island Pines here.  These are regular pine trees, but they were still pretty high up.

Water Lily: Flower of the Day, July 22, 2017


The little pond at the Lake Chapala Society was covered with these gorgeous blooms the other day.  Probably still is, with koi stitching their curvaceous seams in between.

Tabachine: Flower of the Day, July 20, 2017


A few days ago I showed a different color of tabachine.  This is the more usual color—and my favorite.  Butterflies love them.  So do I.  Although my gardener calls the small bush varieties of the poinciana tabachine and the large tree varieties flamboyan, sites on the internet call the larger variety both tabachine and Royal Poinciana and this smaller variety a dwarf poinciana.

Copa de Oro: Flower of the Day, July 19, 2017

Click on first photo to enlarge all.  I love the juxtaposition of the frilly gold flowers next to the stark cacti. This house has been being built for years. Glad they planted their wall vegetation early.

Water Lily Pond: Flower of the Day, July 18, 2017



When I saw your flower post tonight, I couldn’t resist posting this photo of a lily pond I took just today, Cee!!!

Tabachine: Flower of the Day, July 17, 2017


This is such an unusual color of tabachine.  They are usually vivid yellow and orange.

Love them against this vivid fuchsia wall.
