I’m sure there are thousands of great bougainvillea pictures out there but I just could not resist. Also, besides cropping, I did not alter the picture in any way. There is a lot of bougainvillea at the beginning of my half of a mile long driveway and I am always entranced by how it looks and feels completely different depending upon what time of day it is. This is what it looks like a little after the sun has started to set. More often, it is more fuchsia or pink looking but here it is more electric purple… its hypnotizing when I see it like this.
