Bougainvillea - Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday! 

Last week I went to Costco just to buy some groceries until I saw this gorgeous bougainvillea out in front of the store. I couldn't resist!  Costco always seems to get me with something I want but don't really need!

Luckily I already had a pot to transplant it into. 

I'm really loving the colors of this bougainvillea.  They grow like weeds here in California but I've never grown one in a container before.  I've also never seen one with pink and white flowers.  The colors go from light to dark, almost like an umbre effect. 

I seem to have a lot of pink flowers on my balcony.  Here is another one...

Thanks to all of you that join in on Show and Tell Friday every week and thanks to all of you who leave such nice comments!

This is gorgeous Cindy ~ I love it. I can see that this new apartment is bringing back your muse. Oh and I love Costco too. I feel so lucky living here in the Crossroads because I can visit the Costco in Houston or San Antonio or Austin in about the same amount of driving time. Thanks for the party. You are getting your groove back. Can't wait to see what you do next.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

I love bougainvillea! I have had them in my yard a few times, buy my Ca. area seems to get a little too hot, plus with the drought now, I probably won't be buying any new plants :(. Thanks for hosting the party!

I have always wanted a bougainvillea. They are so beautiful - but unfortunately not as common here in the upper left-hand corner of the U.S. Thanks for sharing it and for hosting this great party, Cindy!


I had this plant in many colors in my last house and they are always gorgeous.
Thanks for hosting.

Your balcony looks so pretty with you flowers. A great place to have your morning coffee or take a break in the afternoon.
Next time I come up to visit my son, maybe we can get together and meet.
Thanks for the great party and have a terrific weekend.

You are definitely right ...that is the most unusually beautiful color of bougainvillea I've ever seen. I'm gonna keep an eye out for one. I have a table very similar to this one and have been itching to paint it. Think I will now ...thanks :)
