Bougainvilleas. Love them or hate them? Would you believe I have actually crossed over to the other side. I am crazy in love with them at the moment. The relationship hasn't always been this way. The Bogan and I have never been friends; I always thought she was far too common for me and way too loud when it came to her flowers - raging magenta, electric fushia; not in my garden thanks! However, recently I have had a change of heart or rather Bougainvillea's vibrancy has ignited my heart! All these years of being misunderstood, sorry Bougainvillea, I love your flowering flamboyance!
