Flower of the day-Bougainvillea Glabra

‘I grow everywhere but belong to nowhere’

Commonly known as Paper Flowers.It’s a stunning flower with variety of colours from pink to yellow to white…to orange and purple. unfortunately  the flower is not much appreciated.

It has a symbolic meaning.It stands for welcoming the visitors.

It has spines.

It’s an evergreen plant,cultivated as a climbing shrub.

Can grow into a tree.

This lovely shrub grows everywhere,but no body cares it or at least have a look.I feel sad.

“She is Bougainvilleas.

Lush ,wild


And rarely appreciated

Oh! She couldn’t care less!”    Warm witty wise    

This post is part of Cee Neuners’ FOTD photo challenge,where she encourages all of us to post photos of flowers every day or whenever possible.

Thank you. Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

        I agree with, dear Pluto. As some has commented, here in Florida it grows like weed, so most people don’t take it seriously. We, however, purchased this condo years ago mainly because I fell in love with a profusion of purple bougainvillea forming a natural boundary of a tropical courtyard.

    Thank you Subbashini Meenakshi Sundaram.I don’t know most of my comments I post on fellow bloggers landing in their spam folders.I raised this with happy engineer,he said he is helpless and advised me not use ‘thank you’ in my comments.I felt it’s absurd.
    I have to escalate the matter.
    Or else I have to de activate my blog,since the purpose of blogging is not helping me.
