the frustrated gardener.
Posted on September 23, 2013
As I’ve mentioned in earlier posts it is getting warmer here & one thing I love about the warmer weather (as a winter person, with red (now blonde) hair & freckles – there isn’t a lot) is the bougeanvilleas. Whenever I see one in full flight it just makes me so happy. The colour is incredible and images of this plant are always accompanied by a seaside image so I’m instantly transported to the Almafi Coast in Italy (or somewhere equally exotic). I’ve purchased a couple of these plants (that are unkillable apparently) for No.9 & it just does not flourish as in the images but I remain determined and have gathered advice from the lady at Flower Power.
(so I’m on the right track) My impatience doesn’t help as I search daily for new growth. Below is an image of hope courtesy of pinterest. I’ll keep you up to date with my gardening adventures.
