Bahrain’s Bougainvillea bazaar

The Bougainvillea is out in force in Bahrain. It’s everywhere, in full bloom.
While this hardy plant is perfectly capable of weathering the harsh summer, it’s rather colourless, dull and drab. But, come October and the easing of the heat, it comes out with a vengeance and shows its true element.
Our own garden, in keeping with the “mood” everywhere, is in full bloom as well!

    We have Bougainvillea here too, but it will not tolerate our cold winters, and isn’t fond of the summer heat. So there is a very short window of beauty for it here in the south central US. Lovely images,my friend!

    1. Thank you very much! The weather being what it is in Bahrain, these flowers are always in bloom, even though the ‘winters’ mean these are more colourful. Everything’s suddenly sprung to life now!
