Bougainvillea

I never fail to notice this building on one of the roads near my place where lovely white bougainvillea force their branches out from the apertures of a building.
This time I managed to keep the camera ready when we were passing by this road, this pic is taken from the car - so people don't suspect me zooming into random houses ;)
The overhead wires are spoiling the photo for me - but it was impossible to capture the former without the latter.
I also love the pots on the sill of the balcony with the blue roof and the overall red tiled roof.

It is lovely, the blue roof, the potted balcony, the tiled roof and especially the bougainvillea. Reminds me of the one my grandma used to have except hers was red.
You took this from the car?! Did you stop and take it or was it moving?

stopped for a few seconds due to traffic on this narrow road :)

I had never seen white bougainvillea only pink. I like how you pointed to the pots on the balcony very pretty indeed.

I remember an orange strain, don't see it anywhere now. I like the yellow too. Think there's a pale green version also, or is my imagination running riot?

I *love* that blue roof up there! And the bougainvillea bush too... It is a very pretty scene, thanks to the traffic for giving you an opportunity to click!

*My own comment vanished from here - so posting again.
Elisa - our road is full of these white bushes!
Sra- there is an orange variety, more of a peachy coloured variety too, will click it someday - it's just started to fill up with flowers - and the light green ones do exist.
Sig - I've always loved this building so when I was going to drive by this place - I made sure I had my camera on hand, just in case I got a chance :)

There is a sudden burst of white bougainvillea blooms in my balcony too:-)
