Wow! That's a much better photo of some simple Bougainvillea than I've seen on this sorry blog before you say to yourself. Now this next part is embarrassing. My beautiful friend Ellie sent me an email which informed me that my camera has a special flower feature on it for taking digital photos of plants. I'm pretty sure she knows this only because her boyfriend is a professional photographer and not because 99.9% of all normal people know this. So if you are one of the few, the proud, the oblivious-like me- you can find it on your camera too. Mine is listed under the super secretive title of foliage with a graphic of a flower. How would anyone have known?? Hopefully my photos will be a little nicer from here on out. = )
As for the Bougainvillea- ours was growing over the water meter-which is a great cover for an unsightly meter- not so great for the meter reader who is getting stabbed with Bougainvillea thorns. So we now have it tied to a near-by fence and with pruning hope to convince it to grow over the side and spill down the back.
