Good Morning. Bougainvilleas are one of my favorite. We can't grow them where I live, so all I get to see are pictures. You have given a beautiful image.

Great shot. I have some in my yard against a fence. I never knew how thick and scary the thorns on this can become.

That Buganvillea is so well trained and looks splendid on the wrought iron trellis.

Those are beautiful reds. I also love the wrought iron that the branches have intertwined.

One of my favorites! I have one that toppled over in a heavy storm but I found out it was only the tree that supported it! I love them! My dad used to come in with his skin punctured from trimming them! Wonderful shot with the sun on the wall! Awesome-
