One of the things I love best about California is the bright color everywhere. The light is so beautiful it makes hues pop even more.
Bougainvillea is a huge favorite of mine. Pretty much maintenance-free once it’s established. This was taken at sunset.

Blue and yellow fitness center in Leucadia.
Would you believe an ashtray outside a club?

Hope everyone’s having a good Monday. I just found out this July was the hottest in D.C. history, sigh. Anyone else ready for fall?
Love the bicycle. Reminds me of my first bike minus the ornate basket. Love all the vivid colors.

Thanks, Jeanne. I just remembered you asked about Florabella actions. You can buy them at her website:
I love Bougainvillea but we cannot have them here. It’s really not warm enough. After afew hot spring days we’ve had autumn days all along.
Maybe August will be a bit warmer. I know I shouldn’t complain. It’s nicer than the heat you had.
Yes, it’s a weird summer that Europe is having this year. I think I’d like to trade.
We can’t grow bougainvillea here either. I bought some one year and put it on the deck for the summer, but forgot to bring it in before the frost.
I, too, am drawn to the bright colors. They just sing “beach” to me.
I grew up in Southern California. Thanks for a trip down memory lane.
You’re welcome. I lived there for 10 years and miss it a lot.
Now I can’t wait to see the pastels!
