I drive past this bougainvillea every single weekday on my drive home from work.  It catches my eye every time, and what you can’t see in these photos is that the bougainvillea bush wraps around a really tall palm tree.  I love how vibrant the blossoms are, and after it rains there will be hot pink petals all over the ground.  It only takes a week or two before it’s completely full with beautiful flowers again, and I am always amazed it bounces back so quickly!

On the drive home from church a few weeks ago I asked Christian if he would pull over so we could snap a few photos.  I think because I’ve passed by this palm tree bougainvillea hybrid so many times, these photos are probably some of my favorite that we’ve taken all summer.  We’re going on our third year living in California, and the bougainvillea that is sprinkled all over this state never ceases to take my breath away.

  2. I love how effortless this look is and I love your minimal accessories too, just gorgeous Kathleen! I’m not even going to attempt to spell this plant/bush/shrub 😉 BUT, it is absolutely gorgeous. We always enjoyed these when we lived in Newport Beach as well as when we lived in Phoenix…they were in our back yard in Phoenix! So glad you are loving CA…we miss it and always look forward to our visits back to SoCal!
