Hot Pink Bougainvilleas for Pink Saturday

I love Bougainvillea plants. They are so hardy and along with the carpet of flowers comes long thorns to keep intruders out of your yard.

We have so many of these plants in every color along the fences of our property. Here is one plant that is over 12 feet tall and it is a carpet of beautiful hot pink flowers.

Here is a picture of the flowers close up.

Nestled in the flowers is one of my Pink Mosaic Wind Chimes I made last week. I have this listed on my Anne Fannie's Etsy store.

Don't forget to click here and go visit Ms Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for more Pink Saturday participants.

I need some of these Bougainvillea plants because they are hardy! I hope they are hardy if the person planting them doesn't have a very green thumb. They are just beautiful!
Happy Pink Saturday!

My mom grows Bougainvillas and I love them. They are sooo pretty! Do they keep squirrels out? We have a bad bad squirrel that comes in my yard everyday. He runs across my roses, digs up my baby trees. Yesterday he dug up all my basil I had planted. He's a real nightmare!! And I love your wind chime. Very pretty. I'm heading over to your store now. Have a wonderful weekend and happy pink Saturday!

Love your bougainvilleas!

Terri Morse said...

Ooh, they are breathtaking. I didn't know what bougainvillea was until a client asked me to paint them over her child's bed a few years back. She had moved from California, and her little girl missed the blossoms outside of her window! This is a fine specimen! Happy Pink Saturday! Terri

Jori said...

Happy Pink Saturday! Your diner is to die for!! Can I come be your neighbor??? You are too awesome!

Charlotte said...

Beautiful! As always :-)

LV said...

I have some baskets of Bougainvilleas that are blooming. They are about the same color as yours. I did not know they would grow on a fence like that. I would love having some that looked like yous. Truly beautiful.

Hi Anne, I too love those gorgeous flowering plants. NC can't grow them though. I had them in our Florida yard in the several homes we lived in back when. Pink is my favorite color. Then there is a orange pink that is pretty too.

Happy pink Saturday.
Hugs, Jeanne

These are gorgeous! You must live where it's warm all year. My Aunt lives in southern CA and has these bushes in her yard. They are sure beautiful when they bloom, so vibrant. Happy Pink Saturday!

Oh Annie Sweetie...
What a beautiful bougainvillea plant. It is all in its glory right now. Just gorgeous. They are so pretty, loved and cared for.

Your wind chime is just precious. It is SO you. I love the mosaic and the pink is very pretty. Just perfect for a garden chime to play when the wind gently blows.

Have a gorgeous pink Saturday sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

I too love bougainvilleas, to you water yours at all?

Denise@alloverroses said...

You definitely live in the right place to grow bougainvilleas. The would die here in the winter for sure. Southern California is a gardner's paradise for sure. Yours are just incredibly beautiful! Love the wind chime too! Happy Pink Saturday!

What a gorgeous plant! My senior mom and I are really getting in the mood for some serious gardening - her with her veges and plans to create a butterfly garden and me with my plans to recreate the Sunflower House we grew last year - maybe a couple of houses :) So this just inspired my gardening dreams even more. Thank you. :) Happy Pink Saturday!

I love them, too. We always had them when we lived in Fort Lauderdale, but they don't thrive here.

Happy Pink Saturday, Ann.
