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.

For Cee’s Flower of the Day Challenge.

Flowers of the Day, Apr 23, 2017: Tabachine and Bougainvillea

Here is my backyard and studio, taken yesterday, plus a closeup of the tabachine.  You’ve seen plenty of closeups of the bougainvillea in the past.  Click on either photo to enlarge both.  it’s hard to remember what season you are in in Mexico as there is always something blooming.  The bougainvillea bloom year round and the tabachine a couple of times a year.  I just heard the first rainbirds (actually an insect–cicadas) this week so the rainy season will soon be upon us.  Then those hills behind my studio will be verdant green.

Few besides this fellow climb as high as the bougainvilleas do.

This was how high up he eventually got, and other palms he climbed this day were twice as high!
