Fallen petals

Today my lawn is carpeted with bougainvillea petals.




All throughout the streets and parks in southern California, jacaranda trees are showcasing their beautiful blue flowers. A beautiful petal carpet surrounds the tree.



What a show!

  5. I would give anything to have a tree like that. I am not familiar with them. I have some bougainvilleas but nothing to compare to yours. I never saw any this large and beautiful. I loved your post today.

  10. Hi Komali, I always collect some of my fallen bougainvillea petals and store them in a big open jar. Those petals keep beautifully and decorativ for a long time because they keep their color. Bougainvilleas are so pretty.
