Hot Pink Bouganvillaea

Another Beauty from our Garden,  this hot pink bougainvillaea with magenta undertones has a lovely curving grace to her.

Beautiful lines. Plenty of foliage greens to complement the hot pink flowers and the soft edges in the background serve to advance the flower even further into the front.

Upon close inspection you can see the rain drops that have just fallen on the flower.

The gracefulness and elegance of this flower is only a little deceiving in that this bush has a long, extremely sharp thorny stem that is quite painful when  I try to give it a bit of a prune!
