Skywatch-Friday-Istana Park - Part 3

Continuing from posts on flowers in the Istana Park.
Saw these beautiful bougainvillea. I always thought that bougainvillea are pink, did not realise they comes in white too.

Looking up through the arches, you can see both different colours of the plant.
Closer look at the white bougainvillea with the sky in the background.

The only thing about them is that they aren't all that fragrant. But you should smell an orange blossom: to die for!

I love bougainvillea but here it is likely to freeze. But I can grow peonies and I love those too. Thanks for sharing.

I've seen Bougainvillas in many colours. In our Singapore home, we had fushia, purple, orange, yellow, white, liht pink & dark pink! I do miss bouganvillas. Now we have cherry blossoms instead.
