This bougainvillea is the most tenacious pest in my yard. It is the ultimate weed: it grow inches by the day (well, that's what it seems to me), it has a root system that grows in rock so it grows just about anywhere, it has thorns that grab me as I walk by, no amount of cutting or herbicide has killed the plant ... and it is so beautiful, I feel a pang of guilt every time I cut it back. So I decided if I can't kill it, I'll draw it!
