Bougainvillea Incognito

 


These were also taken at school hidden in full view. Many people just walk on by and don't take the time to smell the roses. Well in this case the bougainvillea. Oh, I forgot these don't smell, but you get the idea.

Trinitarias is the Spanish name. My mother used to cultivate them in our home. They would get huge and I beautiful and the Reinitas loved them.

Jose, that is what I have always called them. Trinitarias. I used to have trinitarias bordering my fence in Guaynabo in all colors, peach, hot pink, white, and mauve. It was a delight to the eyes but we had to watch out for the thorns. Those were wonderful days.
