Bouganvillea are native to South America. In Europe, they have an interesting feminist history, having first been "discovered" and described to Europeans by Jeanne Baret, the young woman-disguised-as-a-man assistant and lover of Philibert Commercon, a French botanist who accompanied Louis Antoine de Bougainville on his circumnavigation (read the recent book The Discovery of Jeanne Baret for the complete story, it is a good one!)
But I digress. I love subleties in color and tone, and I stood mesmerized today trying to buy just the right colors for my backyard. It was so hard to decide. And so today as I continue my play vacay, I found these details drawing me in. Perhaps you have a detail in a corner of creation drawing you in today?
