Amazing Bougainvillea!

Ever since my first visit to southern Europe many years ago, I have had a sweet spot for Bougainvilleas!
How they sweep over buildings and cascade down fences and retaining walls, spilling their beautiful flowers into the road for all to enjoy... Living in Florida I have come to see them often, and in many different colors, ranging from hot pink to coral to white. I have also come to learn that they are thorny and need a lot of pruning to look good :)

The image above is from a very dear clients home, and this beauty frames the garages in a spectacular display of flowers! How wonderful would it be to see this every time you pull up to your house??

Happy Mothers Day to all of you out there,
