There is a lot of red bougainvillea that line the water's edge in Long Beach, California, USA.

The red of the flowers look very good against the deep blue of the water; love the ripples in the water too.

Nice shot. Long Beach is a great area.

Long Beach has some really lovely areas! Two of my 3 sons live there; all 3 went to CSULB. These bougainvilleas remind me of my childhood home in San Bernardino--we had one in the front yard and one in the back yard. I was fascinated with their 3-petalled loveliness.

I love how you used the flowers as frame for your picture, so pretty! Bougainvilleas are plentiful here, as they thrive in our hot climate.

Red bougainvillea growing wild (or not) on the edge of the sea! I'm so jealous! I love that shrub so much but it just does not grow where I live in Canada. Thanks for sharing.

Bougainvilla is my favourite flower and reminds me of when I am in the Caribbean :)
