Hello Everyone from Ten Gables Cottage,
The Bougainvillea between the studio at Ten Gables and the garage is blooming now and will continue all winter! The only problem is it has caterpillers that love the leaves and I will have to spay it or they will strip the leaves soon! This native plant of South American loves our climate in Florida and is the most brilliant and popular of all the flowering vines. Click on the photo to see a larger view and you can see where the little varmints are starting to eat up the leaves!

  1. Love those blooms. Bougainvillas are fab plants for warm climates. Not sure it'd like living in Ireland!
