Born in the Purple

Bougainvillea is native to South America. Here it has escaped and formed a mauve dell for the cattle to escape the searing heat. The colour is beyond vivid and can be seen for many miles.


  1. What a sweet picture.

    I grew up in USA singing "The farmer in the dell, the farmer in the dell . . . " but your using the word here made me realize I never knew exactly what it meant. Now I looked it up and know. Thanks!

  2. wonderful colour.
    Have a great weekend and enjoy your last few days of 2012.

  3. I do love Bougainvillea, not sure about it being nice when escaped however.
