Bougainvillea, the Friendship Flower

Bougainvillea is a genus of thorny ornamental vines, bushes, and trees with flower-like spring leaves near its flowers. In our place, the Philippines, we call it bugambilia.

It is considered as the official flowers of Tagbilaran City, Philippines. In some countries like Guam, Taiwan, and Malaysia and some cities of California, like Camarillo, Laguna Niguel, San Clemente; cities in Guangdong, province of China, like Shenzhe, Huizhou, Zhuhai, and Jiangmen, and the cities of Okinawa, like Xiamen, Fujian, and Naha.

Other countries in the world call it in the different names like Napoleon, Papelillo, Primavera, Drillingsblume, Santa Rita, Veranera, among others.

This flowering plant has several bright colors. Its regular color is white. And other colors are pink, magenta, purple, red, orange, and yellow.

Amazing Bougainvillea Power

Raul Reyes also know as RalRey in Tuetego posted a bougainvillea in one of his posts recently and he tagged me to get conected with me. I do appreciate what RalRey has done. I consider it as a friendship in action, though it is done virtually.

RR, I may call him for short is a prayerful man on the way I describe him. He loves God above all. He seems to devote his time in serving the Lord. Tuetego, I believe, is one of this means whereby God has brought us closer to each others.

Flowers are created by God to let man know that He exists. He takes care of them for the man to appreciate His beautiful creation. They signify the great love of God for man.

Thus, bougainvillea for me is one of the many reasons why RR and me so concerned about ourselves as far as God's mind and mighty works are concerned to edify and strengthen our friendshilp.

Thank RR for the beautiful bougainvillea you posted and by mentioning my name. I do appreciate your friendship for that.

RalRey β€Ί A Venezuelan poet and humorist named Aquiles Nazoa wrote a prose poem called "CREDO" which in one of his lines says: "I believe in friendship as the most beautiful invention of man". But you and I know from the Word of God that, although this poetic thought has its human value, the true and most frank teaching of friendship and models of friendship is contained in the Bible and that the best model of friendship is represented in the person of our Lord Jesus Christ. His expression of appreciation and friendship towards me is reciprocal. Beautiful and significant article in honor of bougainvillea and friendship.
