I love bougainvillea, and the first sight of this burst of purple at a traffic light brought an instant smile to my face.




It’s been very dry and hot for many weeks, with very little rain, lasting only a few miserable minutes each time. Only once last week I think did it last a bit longer, but then it was barely for half an hour. Frequently I see big patches of dry brown grass and dying plants like the palm in the picture above. The bougainvillea though, thrives in hot weather.
