Mighty Bougainvillea

In the middle of June I shared this picture of the bougainvillea plant my friend A. gave us for a housewarming gift. (Original post here.)

Bougainvillea 6.15.08

It was doing well after replanting, and I was proud of my work after a few gardening failures.


Bougainvillea 7.30.08

Flourishing! I want it to grow over the white stone fence behind it, in front of the house. I've already moved the stake to coach it to grow in that direction; you can't tell from the picture from it's grown a bunch. But it's not going to be big enough for long- I need a bigger stake soon!

I guess I go to the garden store and buy.....big wooden sticks? :-)
