Marvelous, VP. I don't think we have this plant in New England. Our winters are too cold for it.

Randy said...

They are wonderful but watch out for those thorns.

What an aroma must be on that balcony.

I expect a beautiful woman, at any moment, to come out on that balcony.

But would that beautiful woman be named Juliet?

Arguably one of my favourite flowers...

Yes, it's Bougainvillea and as far as I know, it doesn't smell. Nevertheless, it is a wonderful frame for the balcony, emphasizing all the details. Great, VP!

Beautiful composition with the fantastic balcony in the background. Bougainvillaeas are in full bloom here too and will remain like that until October/November.

E' un tipo di pianta che piace anche a me, magnifico quel terrazzo lì dietro! Buona domenica, Arianna

Love their colors, but absolutely hate their thorns and the daily sweeping that their one-day-only blooms require. I guess all beauty require high maintenance. ;)
