Vera is the name of a small bougainvillea plant that we have been growing in a pot for five years. It does not flower every year, and in the fall and winter it has to be brought inside the house to survive the cold. The flowers are small, the bracts surrounding them are colored a pale purple, almost pink under good sunlight. This year there were many flowers, and I took that rare opportunity to take a series of shots under a bright afternoon sky.
