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.

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.

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.
