Malaga Cove Plaza - Balcony with Bouganvillia

Office building detail next to the arch entering the Plaza. The Spanish style plaza is the first development on the peninsula.

That is SO GORGEOUS!!! Thank you for showing us this lovely scene. I like how the figure is caught in the shadow, too. I remember having to trim our bougainvillea on an arbor leading to our front door. Oh the THORNS! They don't seem to grow up here at all, but are so part of the landscape in SoCal. Great photos!

Magnificent! I have this flowery vine in a hanging pot, but I am afraid it is puny compare to this!

Two absolutely beautiful photogaphs. makes me just want to BE there. I love this colour bougainvillea too. So often here it is a rather strong mauve and not nearly as attractive.

Wonderful shots today. THe bougainvillea looks very much like the flowers on the crape myrtles we have here. Does anyone know if they are kin? The pink is spectacular next to the old brick and pretty blue shuttered door. Ahhhh

Nice shot. Positively European, isn't it?

Beautifully taken - the bouganvillia truly brightens up the building
