Photographer's Note

Part of an enormous bougainillea that reaches out from the facades of two old houses in Ayia Marina. The tall house has been vacant for many decades, the low one for a few months. The houses stand upon a cliff above the sea.

From Wikipedia:

bougainvillea can be used as a houseplant or hanging basket in cooler climates. In the landscape, it makes an excellent hot season plant, and its drought tolerance makes it ideal for warm climates year-round. Its high salt tolerance makes it a natural choice for color in coastal regions. It can be pruned into a standard, but is also grown along fence lines, on walls, in containers and hanging baskets, and as a hedge or an accent plant. Its long arching thorny branches bear heart-shaped leaves and masses of papery bracts in white, pink, orange, purple, and burgundy. Many cultivars, including double-flowered and variegated, are available.

Thank you for visiting
