In memory of our bougainvillea…


Wednesday 29 April, 2015 by Uncle Spike

It looks like our two bougainvillea’s have become the latest victims from the much colder than normal winter, albeit it was just perhaps ten nights that did it. Anyway, it is almost May, and there are still no signs of life from either plant, so I’m guessing they’ve had it. Such is life – time to plant some climbing roses instead I think. So here’s a look back at our bougainvillea, as was, AND a curious visitor I found there last autumn 🙂








Now, this was late last autumn, heading into winter.

Can you spot the visitor hidden in there? Go on, take a closer look….




Bit closer still…




Ah yes, there he is…




After a while having a lens stuffed in his face, he popped out to see what all the fuss was about. Don’t think he was that excited by it all, as after a few seconds, he went back to his original spot, and I in turn climbed back down the stepladder 🙂

  1. I wish we could grow Bougainvillia, so beautiful. You are lucky to have had them as gusts for this long by the sound of you winds. I do hope they do re grow . 🙂


  2. Oh look out borgainvillea .. it might be rose time! Very handsome little visitor you have there 🙂

    Let’s hope that Patrecia is right and that they make a full recovery.

    poking the lens in his face…..haha. that sounds familiar.

    Warmth! He was looking for warmth. I hate that your lovely flowers died, darn it. But a wall of climbing roses will be stunning also.
