Thank you all. I'm glad you enjoy the images. Smiling

This bougainvillea has been in this pot for at least 15 years. I re-potted it
~5 years ago.

This was taken before I laced it out for it's bonsai look.

Bougainvilleas are so rewarding. They are in bloom almost year round (or seem to be).

Here's the full image
