This morning we walked up to the green market. The market is held on Saturday, January through March, around city hall. On our way we saw this bougainvillea spilling over a wall. The little cream colored flowers are hidden between three colorful bracts (petaloids). In the cool dry season the bracts can last for a month or two. But if we have a few days of rain and little sun the bracts fall, ending the show.
