These colorful plants that some have cultivated into trees, are all in bloom right now. You can spot them all over town but nothing like this tree. Did you know that there are over 300 varieties of bougainvillea around the world? This one happens to be on Mary Lindsey's front lawn. Breathtaking, isn't it?...stop by and see it.
That's Mary behind the fence. Katie and I drove up there the other day to get some children's books from the Little Free Library when I spotted this fabulous tree (how could I miss it?). Of all the various colors of Bougainvillea, this fuchsia is my favorite.
