Pink Celebration!

I always love the Bougainvillea plant!
And to prove this, I featured it several times in the past.
The Bougainvillea is pretty, sturdy, and needs less maintenance.
I was told it thrives on sunshine (lots of it here!)
and need not be watered daily (less cost too!)
When I was doing creative exercises with my 11 year old special student Sam, the Bougainvillea exudes the place with positive energy even on a hot day! Like a cheer dancer cheering us to make it work. . .
So when the usual non-verbal autistic Sam took a pause in the middle of the session to call the attention of his nanny who understood and waited patiently for Sam to express what he wanted in his slow calculated tone: "Sam wants to eat cookies" . . . I almost cried! It seemed like a small victory but as I held back tears of joy to ask Sam if he wanted to resume our session while we waited for his nanny to bring his cookies and he said "Art? yes!" I was totally delirious with happiness! He used to hate art and drawing and coloring but now, even in hunger, he was willing to go on with the session!
And the beautiful Bougainvillea stood as silent witness to the joy of the moment even under the hot humid day. . .
I have a lot of special Bougainvillea moments
and each one is as special as the others.

And this I share with special people at:

Yes, their brilliant pink is lovely. But our human gets annoyed when the neighbours' Bougainvillea bracts and leaves keep falling over.

This plant has gorgeous flower, the bi-color one looks fantastic.
They don't like our climate, what a pity.

I love that pink and bougainvillias are gorgeous, we used to gave them in three colors at a past house we had, where our girls grew up. I love flowers and I even love to see them falling on the garden, I miss that. Thank you for your lovely and kind visit. Enjoy your weekend.
