tropical splash of colorMarch 23, 2017 / byCozy Memories / Categories : Feeds
After an almost summery week (yes, in March !), I got inspired this past Monday to go to a nursery & get some plant & flowers for the garden. I bought a little handful of them, some to put above the (ugly & plain) mailbox, but my main purchase, the one that makes my heart smile, is this superb Bougainvillea "Manyla", with peachy pink flowers. Well, actually parts of the flowers are pink & others are peach/salmon. It has a medium size as of today (didn't buy it too small nor too big) but I'm really really looking forward for it to growing bigger & bigger & cover the wall of our garage ! It adds such a girly & tropical splash of color to this corner, I simply love it !
The flower is not native from here (it is from south-America), but it will enjoy our Mediterranean climate very much ! It was named after French admiral & explorer Louis Antoine de Bougainville. (1729-1811)
The weather is back to more springy seasonal temps & kind of weather (wind & stormy rain coming our way), for which I don't complain at all (we need the water !), but the feeling of these colors on the photos below will make you feel in the heart of summer ! They might inspire you for painting or drawing or anything else, who knows !
If you wonder how Pitou is doing, he's doing very well, enjoying every possible corner of the garden (and beyond ! ah !), and when the sun is out, you can find him under one of the palm trees ...
