Fallen bougainvillea bracts, Southern California

Who betrayed these bracts,
tossing them into the grass
to fade and wither?

  11. Oh, my…Your gorgeous bougainvillea….so incredibly beautiful! When I lived in Hawaii I had a huge plant outside my kitchen window. It was so nice washing dishes and enjoying it’s colorful blooms. I do remember trying to prune it one time…Oh, the huge thorns.
