How Did My Garden Grow?

You may or may not know that I just got back from 5 weeks back in Europe. While I was away, my bougainvillea, after 3 years of slowly growing up a shady wall, hit the top, found the sun and flowered. My Brisbanite friends tell me I am mad to cultivate such a thorny aggressive beast but I just love them.

Two things I love about the north - the bouganvillias and the coloured frangipannis.

Well, I live here and I don't think you are crazy at all for growing bougainvillea!

Lovely photo!

Welcome home anyway!
