Outdoor Wednesday

A couple of weeks ago I showed you a huge Bougainvillea that is growing on the side of our house.  It has bloomed even more, as we have enjoyed wonderful warm weather.

Here is the view from the front of our house


Let's get a little closer


Such a unique flower.
Now let's step through the gate and see how it looks from the back yard.



There are other flowers blooming in the yard.


These Pentas were planted last year and they are still blooming.

I received a beautiful Hydrangea for Mothers Day last year, so I thought I would see if it would grow in my yard.

It looks like little buds are appearing.

More Pentas


And these Roma Tomatoes are still growing!

Have I mentioned that I love living in the south :-)

I wish my patio received enough sunlight for those. They are beautiful and unique.

Your flowers are beautiful! We are expecting 5-6 inches of snow overnight here! :-(
Oh well, guess like everyone else, I will bloom where I'm planted.

I just love bougainvillea. Traveling extensively in the Caribbean, India, and Southeast Asia, I have seen some of the most incredible ones, of every beautiful color - massive vines that seem to go on for miles. I love all their hot colors.

This is the time of year when I'm envious of all of you who live where the weather is nice this time of year. I am in nw pa with lots of snow. It's hard for me to imagine that you have flowers already. How beautiful! Peggy from pa
