Veraneras (Bougainvilleas)




“You can look at a picture for a week and never think of it again.  You can also look at a picture for a second and think of it all your life.”Joan Miro

Good Day!

  1. Hola Omar,
    We have always loved seeing veraneras. The contrast between the colors of the flowers and leaves makes an eye-catching display.

    We were thinking about you two days ago while watching a documentary on the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis, Missouri. There was a lady photographer who captured some historic photos and I wondered if you had heard of her during your photographer’s journey.
    “Jessie Tarbox Beals is known as America’s first female news photographer because The Buffalo Inquirer and The Courier hired her as a staff photographer in 1902.”

    I added a link to some information I found about her. She was certainly ahead of her time.

    1. Hola Jim y Nena:

      Aura and I love Veraneras. As a matter of fact, we have them in three different colors in our front garden (red, purple and white). More than once I peep from our living room window to see them bloom. It’s a soothing experience. Good to tame your spirits and nibble away at your urban stress.

      No, Jim, I don’t recall reading about Jessie Tarbox, but I promise you I’ll Google her name after I finish writing this comment. BTW, 1904 was a long time ago. Our republic was only one year old at that time.

      I know for a fact that Nena was proud to see pictures of a veraneras. They are very popular in Boquete, and in the whole country for that matter. I love flowers, as you already know. 🙂
