Leaves? Whatever they are, they’re striking. You’ve captured them for us beautifully.

Magenta is my favourite of all the bougainvillea colours 🙂

I love it too! I remember the first time I saw it, when I was about 13, and every time I’ve looked at it since I’ve had the same feeling of amazement at the leaf-petals. 🙂

I’m amazed that you actually remember the very first time you saw it! 😀

It’s because we moved into a new house and it was all over the side gate and the fence between our yard and the neighbor’s. I remember walking next to it on my way to check out our new backyard, and everything just felt like possibility, and the magical-looking bougainvillea was part of that. 🙂

Oooh I love what you said about the ‘possibility’ of a new place 😀 Lots of magic just waiting to be found….
Pssst…..I just watched your Hogwarts Express video…..the train is so beautifully maintained! And now reading about your boggy walk around those hills 😮
