Floral Friday Fotos: Beautiful Bougainvillea + a visitor

Bougainvillea has large clusters of colourful papery bracts, surrounding its small and insignificant flowers. These brightly coloured flower-like leaves whichΒ serve to attract pollinators, are visible all year round in Florida. If you zoom in, you’ll see a cute explorer among those tangled branches.


Peater the green Anole Lizard was having fun playing hide and seek with any insects who might have decided to make their home in the Bougainvillea. I wonder how many of them he managed to snaffle.


Happy Friday everyone and I hope your weekend is a relaxing and enjoyable one.

  1. I’ve seen the beautiful flowers at the garden center, but a bit too pricy for an annual! They won’t survive winter in our area.

  2. I love Bougainvilleas Sylvia. A job to keep it neat, but it’s well worth it and I can see Peater made himself at home there. Such a lucky guy to have you there. πŸ˜€

      • I am sure you wishes it was in your garden Sylvia. Good for Peater then and you of course. Now you can just take more beautiful shots of him. πŸ˜€

  3. la mia bella Boungavillea Γ¨ ancora avvolta nel suo cappotto invernale, l’altro giorno ha nevicato sugli Appennini ed il freddo Γ¨ arrivato fino a qua, Γ¨ bene che stia ancora coperta…e non ha nessun lucertolone dispettoso a farle compagnia, pehu!
