Is that a real bougainvillea? I didnt remember they had a white heart :-)) I guess not all of them have one.

I have visited Keith's gallery. I love the photo "mutual admiration". You are very beautiful.

Thanks so much Nadine, Berrybird, Marie and jo(e) for all your very kind comments. Theya re real bougainvillea! They are flowering at the Belle ISle Conservatory right now. Interestingly, the red bracts or whatever they are are visible for a much longer time than the small actual flowers. Not sure if all of them produce flowers. I guess I must do some research in my spare time, LOL!
