Comeback

June 22, 2014 - Harry Eagar
About a month ago, I was certain this bougainvillea was dead. It had dropped every leaf and was just a bundle of sticks. The only reason I didn't cut it down was that I wasn't eager to wade into all those thorns.

I was even more certain that it had died because the other bouganvilleas in the neighborhood, although they had dropped some leaves during the winter, had not dropped them all; and they were already opening new buds last month; and this plant had never dropped all its leaves in the 10 years or so since I planted it.

Maybe we cannot fool Mother Nature, but she can sure fool me.
