The Bougainvillea started blooming today. It made it through winter on the screened porch that doubles as our greenhouse when the weather gets cold. 

I kept it watered, and it bloomed on the porch until December. Then all the blossoms and leaves fell off, but I could tell it was still alive.

 The Mandevilla was sitting beside it, and to some reason, it didn't make it. Last week I bought a new one and put it next to the swing in the back yard. 

Flowers and flowering shrubs sure dress up a place.


  1. Wish I could grow that here. LOL It sure is pretty. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  2. I do appreciate folks who know the names of plants. I depend on my sweetheart to tell me except roses and tulips I'm good at them. However I can enjoy the beauty without knowing the name. At times ignorance is bliss. LOL

  3. Beautiful.
    I will have to explore Mandevillas here. Which I have said before.

  4. That's beautiful, Rick. I overwinter my geraniums, too, and they do really well.I hope you have a wonderful Sunday! Hugs, Diana
