Bougainvilleas and Frank Lloyd Wright

Bougainvilleas and Architecture by Frank Lloyd Wright.  This big sweeping walkway with the beautiful bougainvilleas lining the path is at Taliesin West.  I love the combination of angles and foliage. 

Across from this pergola and bougainvilleas were the many drafting tables of the architect apprentices who worked at Taliesin West. 

The Taliesin West tour continues for a few more days.  For more information or to schedule a public tour, click Taliesin West.

la couleur des bougainvilliers va bien avec l'architecture.

bougainvilleas color goes well with the architecture.

I wonder if he planned the bougainvillea? Fascinating series.

Glad you both enjoyed Morocco. Oh, yes, very French of course. I long to go to Morocco. It's about time and only a hop, skip and jump from here really.

Bougainvilleas you can have! They are beautiful, but we had them next to our pool and they died in the winter and made a mess...

They probably survive in Arizona although I can remember mornings in Phoenix in the teens.

They are gorgeous! Glad you had a good trip to Morocco. I have a friend who is going there in the fall.

Hi Julie - are you going set up another blog page to share Morocco with us?

Hope you enjoyed Morocco? We would love to get over there, hoping to some time soon, love the bougainvilleas. Obviously we don't get them here!!

Julie said...

Yes, I like the angles of that pergola, too. I bet the gardeners have a job restraining ther bouganvillia from gallivanting all over the pergola!

Dan said...

...how wonderful it must be to pass by those flowers, enjoying a shawdow with every second step, leaving every first step for the smell...becoming always a first one again, with every new blossom.
You surely have an eye for what is important!
