One of my favorite plants on the Amalfi Coast is the lush and brightly colored bougainvillea that seems to grown in every nook and cranny, over terraces and around doors. I’ve even spied it climbing up the railings on staircases. It is flowering and lovely this time of year, making it the perfect banner image for July. For all of the Positano fans out there, the photo above shows a glimpse of the vertical city in the distance. Here are a few more pictures I have taken in the past couple of weeks:

Ciao Mom! I framed it with that house just in the middle for you! You know how I love to make you smile. 🙂 A terrace with bougainvillea has to be in there somewhere, right??
Ciao Chuck! I love the colors, too. You can see the brightly colored bougainvillea from the sea!
