Bougainvillea bushes are everywhere in Cyprus, they are a hardy and beautiful flowering bush which looks spectacular when it gets water, but the flowers cannot survive in high temperatures.
In summer, bougainvillea looks the best in the mountains, where the temperature is lower and the flowers can survive longer. When it gets too hot, the flowers become ashy, papery and dried up.
Water makes a huge difference to this pretty flowering bush.
Enjoy the moment!
