Shine Through

Here's a hint if you are planting bougainvillea, plant it so it will grow high and the sunlight will back light the translucent bracts. It makes a lovely sight against the beautiful blue skies in the fall!

I love backlighting of plants. The bougainvillea is lovely. When we build (someday) I hope to watch the land and she how the sun moves through it...then plan where the house and gardens will sit. gail

Pink in the fall! Beautiful! Not for our climate, unfortunately!
