Notes from the field, essays, and observations.
A greenhouse I visit in winter has an ancient bougainvillea vine I’ve enjoyed for years. This year they cut it back, but kept a few flowering cuttings. Easier to photograph than the old vine but I miss the huge cascade of flowers.
This is so lovely!
Thanks! I really love this flower…
Very pretty. My Mom has one of these in a pot. She drags it into her garage every winter, thinks it’s dead every spring, is ready to bury it, and suddenly it begins budding.
Wish I could grow bougainvillea outside – it’s tropical, and I think you need a greenhouse for it up here in the northeast. The greenhouse for this plant was built in 1804. The main plant could be really old…
Such a vibrant color. Very pretty.
The colors are what draw me into the greenhouse at this time of year. This plant has an unusual hue I don’t think many other flowers have. Thanks!
I don’t think I’ve seen a macro of a bougainvillea! Beautiful. 🙂
j’adore celle-ci comme si elle se mettait une robe…
looks like it is trying to come out of the red 🙂
Another great macro Tom !
