hot pink summer
I bought this bougainvillaea plant in Bullhead City, Arizona early this spring. It looked nearly dead and was on the sale rack. Poor thing had to live inside when we got to Birdwood because it has been such a cool spring/summer. About a month ago it came back outside to live and look at it flourish! This is the flower that most desert southwest resorts use for landscaping and hedges, as well as more tropical climes like Florida and Hawaii. It looks happy to be living in a clay pot in south central Washington. How I love a hot pink summer.
