Saturday Photo: Bougainvillea, or a Plant from Away
The plant is a native of South America, and it's blooming is appropriate because I'm up to my neck in books about Brazil and Spanish South America for my next non-fiction project, a book to be called Unidentical Twins.
But it also reminds me of my mother. Bougainvillea was one of the few plants she could grow. She always had a massive bush on the east side of the house in San Diego, which I remember with great pleasure.
