About This Image

My family and I often have Christmas dinner at the restaurant at the Royal Palms Resort in Phoenix, Arizona. The flowers are those of a bouganvilla plant. This is very common here.

Thanks Keithbirder. I didn't think they were called petals, but didn't know what else to call them. Not up on such things, you know. Our neighbor in back has several of these plants and they hang over our wall all winter. A lovely sight.

Love the Bouganvillas (pretty "petals" are really bracts) (Tropical plant)

Thanks! As for the dinner, it is always the fanciest dinner imaginable. The Royal Palms is a small resort which has been there for many years. I always eat too much and suffer greatly afterwards.

surprised not to have commented before on this. Would love to have Christmas dinner there too! (any dinner there for that matter : ) We do see these lovely plants here in the summer, people have them in big pots for their patios, but they have to be brought in for the winter. We've never had one tho'. I saw lots of them when on vacation in Mazatlan, Mexico years ago, growing all over the place, different colours, beautiful.
