    Ack! I didn’t send you the poppies yet, these are my peonies! Two of many sorts. :) Sorry for being unclear. :/

    Love the colour on that bougainvillea. And now I know what I saw in Barcelona those many weeks ago -- they’re so delicate-looking!

    Fixed. I thought they looked like peonies, but I’m more medicated than usual -- two badly broken toes, so brain not work so well.

    Oh the bougainvillea -- the blossoms are delicate, so thin, like paper, but the plants themselves are serious tough, and grow huge. When I was little, I called them matchstick flowers, because of the resemblance to match sticks before the little white flowers pop.

    Ugh, hope your toes get better soon! :/
    And yes, I saw these for the first time this May when work sent me to Barcelona -- had no idea what it was, the tiny little white flowers were just popping open, but the colour is stunning, absolutely eye-catching within all the green. Huge, too! Gorgeous.
