Summer Colors ~ Bougainvillea

Bougainvillea in the Frontyard
Royal Purple Bougainvillea in a Pot ~ Coloring the Frontyard Garage Space

A brilliant performer, bougainvillea does well in hot Houston summer. Passionately colorful, passionately vibrant, passionately floriferous – they remind me of bright, eye-catching, gorgeously swirling Rajastani dresses of Bharath.

    Lovely red pot with Bougainvillea, where do you find such beautiful things? We recently visited Greece and we saw Bougainvillea everywhere and felt nostalgic about India. You just inspired to buy the plant;)Unfortunately we do not live in texas, we live in the cold zone 🙁

    Hello, dear Indira (and V and kittaya — loved your backyard antics!)

    Just a little update — after a few years of serious trial and tribulation, I have finally arrived in Michigan to stay (!!) with kitties in tow. I’m back to blogging but many old friends are silent. I suppose that’s how it goes in the virtual world.

    Hoping you’re well, and wishing you all the best as always!

    I noticed that you live in houston and have some good garden blogging with success (is the key). I live in San antonio and recently bought a house. We haven’t even moved and I started off with planting. I have some eggplant, okra, tomato and hot bajji mirchi, jalapeno and thai chilli peppers with one dosakai seedlings growing indoors under cfl lights. I need to move them to backyard. I plan to build some raised beds too, would you suggest, what kind of wood did you use for your raised beds, and what soil did you buy to grow the vegetables? When and where did you start your seeds? etc., Could you please be kind to answer all my questions asap……. I have to start off the raised bed by the this weekend to keep my seedlings growing.. or I may have to buy some more containers to move them into a 5 gallon container and one okra/tomato/eggplant per container. Your thoughts please…..
