Colour Changes in Spring



It's the season for our bougainvilleia to be bursting in colours over the garden walls. But one of the interesting things is the way that the plant gradually can change colour. The picture on the bottom is from the same garden and the same vine as the white blossoms above, but they are gradually turning pink. I have no idea why or how.

we used to have bougainvillea all over the place when I lived in malta but I never remember it changing colour. Maybe I;m just very uobservant! that's so interesting.
