Beautiful bougainvillea plant Ana! One of my favourite plants and we also have plenty here in Uruguay. Nice picture too! It was a beautiful day for what I see =)

Hello

Cammie, this plant isn't growing in the wild. This one is growing in my mother's garden =)

Alice, I love the contrast of the this plant against the sky and I always end up photographing it this way.

Beautiful, I love these plants! I saw one with golden blooms for the first time this year! Is this one growing wild? They are all transplanted here in OK.

Yes, the flower is the very small white part in the middle. There are a few visible in the photo if you look hard.

Oh I see. So the flower is just the white parts in the middle?

The green are the leaves and the pink is actually just bracts surrounding the flower, which is very small and not very showy.

Hi Dane!
The hot pink parts are flowers and the green parts are leaves.
