Great banner Cal!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Lucky you to have a bougainvillea to live with. Love the banner you've constructed of your 'pet' plant. It's a beauty. Thumbs up

Bougainvillea is a genus of thorny ornamental vines, bushes, or trees. It is native to Eastern South America, from Brazil, west to Peru, and south to southern Argentina. Different authors accept from four to 18 species in the genus. The inflorescence consists of large colourful sepal-like bracts which surround three simple waxy flowers.

Are all over the place here in the Southwest. They are very tough when established, drought tolerant,
and are covered with "blooms", actually specialized leaves, seemingly several times per year.

Thanks Elizabeth. Smiling
We're fortunate to have several, one climbing 12 ft up a magnolia.

This is the same plant as the banner....sorry, don't know the name.

It seems as if she hasn't been on since Oct 4. She didn't even reply to her latest banner on Nov 26.
