Pink....!!!


Pink....!!! Do I need say more?

Its Bougainvillia flowers. The actual flower of the plant is small and generally white, but each cluster of three flowers is surrounded by three or six bracts with the bright colors associated with the plant, pink in this case. This plant is visible everywhere in Rajasthan and I love it, especially because of its colourful ornamental appearance. It somehow resembles Rajasthan- Thorny, yet so colourfully beautiful.

@ Siny- Rajasthan is so full of Bougainvillia plants. Its just that they don't bear so many flowers generally due to the hot climatic conditions. Bangalore must be having better ones... But I still associate this plant with Rajasthan!!
