Focus on Life Week 22: In Bloom!

Sally asked us to showcase what is in bloom this week. Of course, I have to feature at least one cactus flower.


But one of my favorite blooms is the amazing bougainvillea.


Here's a little editing to "sass it up" a bit more.


Let's see what is in bloom in the other neighborhoods:

I love bougainvillea. I had some potted when I lived in New Jersey and it surprised me how well they did

When I first saw the prompt I thought I would take photos of the cacti in bloom in my yard. But by the time I went to take a photo they were all gone.So instead I will enjoy your photo.

Would love to be able to grow bougainvillea... In western Canada they sold it in hanging baskets.. I've never seen it here. Is that a prickly pear bloom? It's lovely!

Beautiful blossoms! love the intense color... The bougainvillea "sassed up" looks like an abstract painting.

Love the bougainvillea, and down in the Valley you can at least have the orange ones, like your cactus too.
