Flower of the Day: Garden Salad


A few times a year the leaf-cutter ants make a salad table out of my garden, stripping the bougainvillea, especially.  Today they were busy outside my walls but so far they’ve left the new little bougainvillea bush alone.



Bougainvillea, Flower of the Day, May 2, 2017

I saw this extravagently hued bougainvillea outside a cafe/gallery where we saw the work of a talented young Guadalajaran artist. Rich colors inside and out.

The sign on this gallery/restaurant in San Antonio Tlaquepan said “Mui Rico.” It suited both the flowers outside as well as the cuisine and rich colors of the art display inside.
