Thanks Alex! The sun lights them on fire. Even here if you place a bougainvillea in shade it will sulk. With irrigation, you can't over heat or give a bougainvillea too much sun here. Specifically in reference to the more popular varieties.
Oleanders also seem to respond best with bright light and brighter light. Any share will reduce their fullness and blooms. Even a day with part shade will create a noticeable reduction.
Ficus nitida is God's cultivated gift to the low desert of AZ and CA. Clearly it was a sympathy gift! But I'm super appreciative for it! My favorite 'boring tree' (lacking a showy flower or oversized leaf).
Yeah, I read about the iPhone 7 being 'water resistant'. So I thought I'd try it. I was super impressed. I did that years ago with an iPhone 5 and it messed up the screen for a couple of week. Nothing major, as it was a quick dip. But you could seem water under the glass.
They say one reason why they removed the traditional headphone jack was to help seal the phone up better. It also has like a vacuum feature that will push out the water.
Looking forward to your next batch of pics!
