Beauty in the Backyard

Aah, it has been a while since I stopped by my blog to add anything. I will offer no excuses. But I took a couple of snaps a while back that I intended to post of something I found in the backyard. I was hanging out the washing one day when I looked down and saw a single bougainvillea flower on the ground. It had blown in from somehwere and completely captivated my attention. How beautiful this little thing is I thought to myself and scooped it up to photograph and sit on the window sill in the kitchen. I am always happy to find such things which highlight so perfectly the beauty of nature.
