Our Bourgainvillea Arch

The Bourganvillea plant was a little scrawny fence climber when we moved in.  I was impressed by other bourgainvilleas that I had seen around the city.  They climb walls, over doorways, rooftops and cascade down properties like vibrant waterfalls, spilling onto sidewalks sometimes.  Ours went without direction for a long time, until last summer when I thought it would be cool to try and form an arch with its long arms.  It was skinny and looked silly at first, but it has beefed up and is now flowering!

I do love our palm tree (in the background) too!
