Today's Flowers # 94 - Flowers from Mexico

My friend Luiz from Brazil does the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 2 GMT is the post time.

This is one of the biggest Bougainvillea Vines I have ever seen which was at the hacienda I visited in Mexico.
Check out the free roaming Peacock just above the vine.
I'm not sure what this thorny tree is but it was full of blooms and visitors.
See a lot of great flowers above.

beautiful photos! I've never see an boungainvillea so tall. I wonder if the yellow flowers is an acacia...

Lanny said...

That is a pillar of violet! Oooh and I know what that peacock is saying! "Aren't I grand up here on this roof, everyone needs to come and look at me."

Oh wow, that is one magnificent bougainvillea. I wonder how old it is? Great shot of the peacock also and the other pretty flower.

Gaelyn said...

That's the biggest bouganvillea I've ever seen.

Wow ~ that is one massive bougainvillea. My daughter just bought one at a nursery for $14.99 and it's only two little branches about 10 inches long. We can put it outside over summer but will have to bring it in and baby it through the winter months. Great photo!!

Hi Tom, One of my best friends has been to Mexico and she says that there are so many gorgeous flowers down there. I never would have thought that would be the case!!!!

Great pictures.
Hugs,

Greyscale Territory said...

Amazing bougainvillea! Rich colour and simply huge! And love that busy bee on the flower in the third photo too! I used to have peacocks when I lived in Tasmania and they loved roaming rooftops!

Tipper said...

What color on the vine-just wow!

Craver Vii said...

The peacock seems to be impersonating a rooster.

Nice to "see you" again, Fishing Guy!

Rose said...
