This is what our bougainvillea looked like a few days ago. Lush, beautiful... everything that bougainvillea should be. That's Col standing under it, smiling and hatching his plan for "trimming it back", which needed to be done since they're painting our complex.
This is what it looks like now. Oh, the humanity!
*The first picture is not an actual picture of our house, bougainvillea, or Col. The second picture, unfortunately, is.
