Flower of Jerusalem

Photo of this pink bouganvillea or paper flower was taken in the City of David, Jerusalem in early July. I believe the Mount of Olives is in the background.

Today’s Flowers is hosted by Luiz Santilli Jr. Thank you, Luiz!

Marcos Santos says

Bouganvillea are my favorite.

There are two types: One is male and the other is female. The flower of his picture, it would be classified as female, here.

To see new beauty blossoming in such an ancient city is an awesome thing.

This is the provincial flower of La Union in the Philippines, and my aunt has a lot of this plant -- in different colors. Great shot you have here. The background was so good, too!

We don't have enough sun to keep a Bougainvillea happy here in Belgium, and that's all the more reason I love this picture, Leora!! Lovely meme, this one, I've seen it on other blogs as well!
Your artwork is outstanding too Leora, I love that beetroot leaf!
I watered my plants this evening, and saw that it's doing very well , better than ever!
