a hot mess

hot pink bougainvillea
bougainvillea too

the summer allstars in the garden have been the bougainvilleas. they laugh at drought much like mufasa laughs in the face of danger. my beloved roses? they are crying in a corner waiting until october or november.

not only did the bougies survive this horrid drought, they survived our harsh winter. i trimmed them all to the ground midfebruary as i was trimming back the roses to ready for spring bloom.

bougainvillea makes beautiful bouquets that last even longer than roses. note to self: plant more in the spring.
