Absolutely gorgeous! Are these plants high maintenance?

So pretty!!!! I wonder if I could grow that here??

I "rescued" a bougainvillea from Walmart a few years ago. It was marked down to $1 or something silly, so I bought it on a whim. It became the most beautiful plant and the only one I really baby in the winter. This year was hard, but it started looking better in the spring. I moved it out too early though and it got hit by a late frost. I thought it was done, but has just starting going nuts in the last few weeks. So happy...it's my most favorite

I love bougainvillea! It grows great down here. I wish I had space to grow it. My husband is not a fan because he does most of the yard work and they have thorns. But if you have a spot to just let it go, it's lovely and has a long blooming season, too.

In key west there are quite a few things I'd love to grow but they don't survive our "cold" in Orlando.

What I really adore is forsythia, but we don't get cold enough to get it to bloom! When I go back home to Arkansas, I long for it! My husband misses lilacs from up north.

The spring lilacs and forsythia and apple blossoms are our reward for surviving winter. I look forward to them through the gray days of March and April.
