Not too many love/hate relationships in my life anymore. But I’m pretty passive-aggressive when it comes to Bougainvillea flower petals and the wind.
Jeez they are beautiful! but dammit, not in the pool.
Wind – not breeze. Just to clarify. Breezes good. Wind bad.
Bougainvillea flowers in the wind in the pool. Very bad.
BTW: could you spell bougainvillea without looking? Boo-gain-vee-ya? Who says spelling is important?
Research has found that not only do readers notice mistakes, they engage lesswith websites that have language errors, and they are far less likely to buy something from a website that has even a single misspelling. (Spelling isn’t grammar, but it falls under the broad “rules of language” definition of grammar that many people use.)
The flowers have one advantage over leaves. The flowers float.
Cat suggested that we needed to add some scented oils and adult beverages under the moonlight to complete the scene.
Hee. Yeah. Right.
Three or four times a day I use the mesh basket on a pole to fish the flowers from the pool. But that doesn’t begin to stop the pounds – yes POUNDS – of Bougainvillea flower petals from getting caught in the skimmer.
Why not just let blow around the pool? Because the skimmer leads to the filter which keeps the pool semi-clear. Once the flowers clog the skimmer the flow is restricted.
What a pain. Anybody have any solutions that don’t involve a Bougainvillea tree meeting a chainsaw?
