Sublime images, Mickie! The vibrant colors and sweet little blooms inside. You have a way with the camera ... and words!

That's truly a beautiful flower. I don't think it would last long in my climate, so I'll just enjoy it here.

Wow, wonderful macro!

The colours are stunning :-)

Aren't they stunning? I love 'em. Thing is tho, I hate when they dry up and then it's cleaning up the patio of the dead 'crepe paper'. LOL

Oh, Mickie, these are so pretty! Nice to wake up this morning and see these. Happy Monday!

The flowers are wonderful, the look of warmer seasons in the Autumn. In KS and up north, a cold winter will arrive and the flowers gone. The look of these flowers will stay in my memory as the snow flies...

These are one of my favorites Mickie, and I don't think I've ever seen one this close. These are just beautiful, and I love the gorgeous vibrant color.

Thank you so much for sharing these today at The Creative Exchange.

Have a great evening!

Gorgeous shots of this stunning flower. My mom had one that I bought for her and it was divine but sadly we didn't protect it for the winter last year and she lost it.

The colors and bokeh are gorgeous in these shots.

A beauty within a beauty indeed!

Delightful. Bougainvillea are quite interesting when you really look closely aren't they.

Hi there - I always have to remind myself that these "flowers" are mostly leaves! It’s such a great plant.

What a perfect subject for a macro shot! I've always thought those tiny flowers within flowers are amazing -- now, even more so. Gorgeous.
