The bougainvillea in my yard is about to achieve its full summer regalia.These vines are going on seven years old and are getting quite hardy.
The east side vine is a little ahead in bloom of the west side one.
This year I pruned back the bushiness at the bottoms so they don't cover the front of the windows on either side of the doors.
We're in a drought here in California so I don't water my lawn at all which is why it is completely brown, however I do have these feather grasses which are naturally spreading and taking over. I love them, it makes the yard feel all scrubby and wild and beach like.
