WOW! What a color! What is that plant? I can see what appear to be huge thorns...

One of my favourite plants ... reminds me of when I lived in the tropics.

@Mirela: It's a Bougainvillea.

We have red bougainvilla bursting with color in our yard in Arizona now. The sad part is that the plant grows so fast, and the flowers bloom the most on the new growth that always needs to be trimmed. I hat to cut off such colorful branches.

It's marvellous! We can't grow bougainvilla here - winters are too cold!

I should have recognized the Bougainvillea from my odysseys to Sicily. Powerful image.

Very pretty! Our bougainvilla only bloom in spring as it gets too hot in summer - 109F today - yuck! Oh, I saw a travel show on Portugal that was right in your area - so, so beautiful!
