Bougainvillea grows everywhere in my neighborhood - except on my roof(top patio). It sheds so badly that planting it would forever earn me the ire of my downstairs neighbors. One of the (minor) perils of urban life. Luckily for me though, I can enjoy it growing at street level all over town, like I did with this shot taken just the other day.
