Bougainvilleas & Blue Pots!


Remember the lovely daisy and chrysanthemum flowers which I posted for Chinese New Year 2010? Yeah we went back to that nursery again. This time my mom wanted to get a new palm tree to add extra umph to our home and replace a recently ‘cha to mou tak cheng’ herbal plant. Haha

Bougainvillea Leaves

That was a Sunday. I remembered the morning of that day. It was the prettiest Sunday morning in 2010 (so far). It was also the day I tagged along with my parents to the cool rattan shop before stopping at the plant nursery.

Unfortunately it was noon when we reached the nursery. The pretty day had turned into a hot and windy afternoon. I stayed close by the car. The last 2 shots below were taken from inside the car actually. LOL.

Come feast your eyes on these pretty bougainvilleas (leaves only actually haha) and my current obsession: BLUE POTS!!! They’re so pretty oi.


Bougainvilleas & Pots
Sparkling pots. Love the bokeh.

Planks
Wooden planks found ‘stranded’ under a shade.

Bonsai Bougainvillea
Bonsai bougainvillea.
Pretty but not grand enough. Need to back off a little since 50mm is tight.

More Blue Pots
Ahh yeah blue pots!

Blue Pots
My obsession!!! I LOVE BLUE.

Sprouting Leaves
The lazy shot which I took from inside the car. Kekeke. Turned out not bad la ya?

Reach For The Sky!
Reach for the sky!
Another lazy shot. I like this picture a lot.

That’s all. 🙂

p/s: Took quite a few purple/red bougainvillea pictures but they turned out bad. The color bleeds hell! I read that’s a problem with all Nikon cameras even the ‘keng chow’ D3X also have this problem.

    Simply love the bokeh, so nice. The last picture is pretty. Every time I see bright blue skies, it means a super hot day (summer time) I will go hide in the house, winter time, it’s the opposite, I’m out and about. 🙂
