Fabulously Festive

My absolute favorite!

Petal & Pins

Magnetic Island bougainvilleas

Bougainvilleas are among the most colourful of flowering plants. Named after French explorer Louis Antoine de Bougainville they originate from the tropics and subtropics of South America.

You occasionally see one growing in a sunny spot in Tasmania but in Queensland they put on a spectacular display that is fabulously festive.

This tangle of several colours I photographed while on Magnetic Island, and I picked some to play with for my Garden Fairy’s Wardrobe.

Now my garden fairy is ready for a Summer Fiesta!
