My Bougainvillea

One of my favorite flowers are the bougainvillea. 
I planted this last year and all winter she just looked a little sad. 
Her leaves are coming back now and she's are really bright pink.
I'm going to train her to grow completely over the arbor I had built for her.

This is the bougainvillea up close. 
The pink isn't really the flower, those are part of the leaves. 
The more stressed a bougainvillea is, the prettier she gets.
She is at her best during a drought.

Those tiny white flowers are the actual flower on the bougainvillea.

I also love the hibiscus!

I have a lot of them planted around my house.

This is my double flower Hibiscus below.

I've been planting some pineapples and will post those soon.
They are really fun to grow!
