Tropical Flora and Fauna!

Bougainvillea is one of my new favorite tropical flowers! Their profuse blooms and wonderful colors are irresistible, especially in my all-time-favorite color combination -- pink and orange!  We have several colors in our yard including bright purple and white, all of which have required severe pruning in recent weeks.  Watch out for the thorns -- I think they evolved to fight off dinosaurs!  These have bloomed along new growth and out came my camera this morning -- they are gorgeous in the soft light. Enjoy!

These cuties were warming in the sun on the kitchen deck-- waiting for breakfast, perhaps?
