Imagine Being...

...Blanketed...




...by breathtaking boughs of beautiful brightly blooming bougainvillea...



...before they would be trimmed and boldly blown by landscapers into...



...bountiful blankets of blossoms bits...right before my very eyes!
Unbelievably breathtaking!

No one knows what causes an outer landscape to become an inner one.

Your painting/drawing is fantastic. I love it, the colors, the lines, you have a style that sings beautifully. Is this an ATC by any chance? ???

I love your interpretation of bouganvilla!! It's not an easy plant to draw but you make it look breezy!!

Hey, I'm loving your cute haircut!! And did you go auburn??
That was one of the best choices I made. It was too hard keeping "my blondeness!"

You're adorable ;)

Was ready to post a comment and read about the new photo and hair - so had to jump out and check that out = too cute, girl!!! It really suits you.
Now, the bouganvillea is beautiful, bodacious, and best of all = your's, which makes it special. Lovely. I am imagining being softly blanketed by these petals right now...ahhhhh

Aren't they beautiful? And you have done honor to them!

Did they prune them into tight little balls like at all the shopping centers?

Beautiful blooms.

Wonderful Bougainvilleas! I love how all hese exotic things grow over there!
They sell these also here at the gardencentres but I have never seen one growing in our country probably only in pots as they wouldn't survive the winter here......
Love your new photo!
You look stunning there! You are gorgeous
I will reserve the yellow one for you

I love all of your new work!!! This one is my absolute favorite though, beautiful and colorful!!! Too bad the gardeners have to come trim them so soon.

Love the photos - I have taken so many similar one! Also of the jasmins - which are stunning too - even on the floor.
Love your drawing, too.
