Palm Beach, FL (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Such a pretty evening at sunset on the Intracoastal Waterway a few nights ago! This was captured from the island of Palm Beach side looking over toward the West Palm skyline and the Flagler Bridge . The waterfront in Palm Beach is lined with flowering bougainvillea plants and they are in full glory now as 'winter' approaches!

Image Description: ............Bougainvilleas are popular ornamental plants in most areas with warm climates. Locarno in Switzerland, with its mild Mediterranean climate, is famous for its bougainvilleas. Although it is frost-sensitive and hardy in U.S. Hardiness Zones 9b and 10, bougainvillea can be used as a houseplant or hanging basket in cooler climates. In the landscape, it makes an excellent hot season plant, and its drought tolerance makes it ideal for warm climates year-round. Its high salt tolerance makes it a natural choice for color in coastal regions. It can be pruned into a standard, but is also grown along fence lines, on walls, incontainers and hanging baskets, and as a hedge or an accent plant. Its long arching thorny branches bear heart-shaped leaves and masses of papery bracts in white, pink, orange, purple, and burgundy. Many cultivars, including double-flowered and variegated, are available. Many of today's bougainvillea are the result of interbreeding among only three out of the eighteen South American s

That is beautiful Debra and I am a big fan of bouganvilla once seeing a half mile of them in Hawaii, but of course they do not grow here. Have a very blessed Holy season Debra to you and yours. God bless and I do enjoy your pictures.

Thank you to all of my WunderFriends for the lovely notes, likes, and votes! I appreciate you Mary, Elaine, Bernard, Tanya, Kathy, Carol, Dorothy, Heidrun, Katy, Ingrid, Larry, Wanda, Mary, Ivan, Dave, and Larisa!
For Kathy: Yes, this is the same exact spot as a year ago and those bougainvilleas will be blooming for most of the year. They love the humidity there!
Celebrating life, Debra

Very nice, Debra! Reminiscent of photos you've taken in the past; must be the same location, right? (I'm having great difficulty posting a comment this morning; hope this one goes through all right and isn't copied several times!)
