Bloom Day on Muringa Rd
We don’t have a garden on the 5th floor balcony, but here are some blooms from the neighborhood. Bougainvillea is everywhere, planted as thick hedges, choking tall trees, and twining around barbed wire fences at the top of high walls. I think it’s prettiest here tumbled in with a plumbago down on the corner.
The agapanthus are dead, yes, but still special with the cool dark of the red vines next door, and little peeps of orange.
I found the meaty orange blossom on the pavement downstairs, fallen from the tall Nandi Flame tree in back our our building.
