In the province of La Union - where my father hailed - the bougainvillea flower is their official provincial flower. Everywhere you go, you'll see bougainvillea flower in different colors. Even streets were decorated with this plant!
These two images were captured in my Aunt Julie's garden when I went to La Union last May. She has a lot of different kinds of bougainvillea in her garden, but these two were considered my favorites.
