Bougainvillea Bushes: Flower of the Day, Sept 5, 2017


The rainy season on Lake Chapala turns everything a lush green.  Although generally they flourish in a drier climate, the bougainvillea seem not to be minding it either.

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.

Sculpting with Bushes

These sculpted bougainvillea bushes run up the center divider at the entrance to the fraccionamiento where I live.  Quite an artistic and sculptural effect. Click on the first photo to see them better.
