    • Yes, secrets and thorns. Wow! πŸ˜‰ I know, aren’t they gorgeous, Marina? I just love how this one in our yard is flourishing, and I hope it stays well as we head into a drought and water rationing. Thanks about the haiku, too, my friend. Hugs! πŸ’œπŸŒΊπŸ’œ

      • They are gorgeous! I think they do well with minimum watering too. They are very popular in Greece, especially in the islands where water can be a problem, so…
        I loved your haiku!
        Many more hugs your way!

  1. Lovely haiku! We have several bougainvillea plants in our yard… I love them! Interesting factoid: the colorful “flowers” aren’t really flowers; they are bracts. The actual bougie flower is that small white thing (or, hidden secret πŸ™‚ ) in the center of each one.

    • Thanks, Janice, and such an interesting factoid, too. πŸ™‚ I’m glad you shared with me because I had no idea! And you’re right, that’s one of the hidden secrets. πŸ˜‰ 🌺

    • Thanks so much, Teagan. I appreciate you stopping by and I’ll visit you soon. I’m working on my book and trying to blog at the same time, as I know you’re doing the same. Sending hugs to you, too! ❀️🌺πŸ₯°
