Project 179 (Day 1): Bougainvillea

Dear Me,

To jumpstart Project 179, here's a snapshot of a flower I have come to love since I was seven years old.


Bougainvilleas are popular decorative plants found in many areas with warm climate like here in the Philippines.

Trivia: the actual flower of the plant is small and generally white, but each cluster of three flowers is surrounded by three or six bracts with the bright colors associated with the plant, including pink, magenta, purple, red, orange, white, or yellow.

This photo was taken this morning en route to the local post office.

  1. Really, un white flower pala ang actual flower?! Never thought of that before! :) Thanks for sharing!


It's always refreshing to know what's on your mind. Thanks!
