Sunshine in Split


For the past few days it has been raining in Split. With many hours spent indoors, I had the opportunity to organize some photos I took this summer. I love the vibrant color of the Bugambilia flower.

Did you know that although its name refers to the French region Bouganville it is native to America? Makes me wonder how it made its way to Croatia.

These are photos from around our neighborhood.

This morning instead of rain we saw a beautiful bright Sun. I couldn't help but smile. I think I will go out and capture some more photos.
By the way, I wanted to share that I'm a new auntie! Mi hermana menor tuvo su tercer nino y peso mas de 4 kilos! Felicidades hermanita. How I wished I was in Iowa to meet that little bundle of joy.

  2. Thankyou for stopping by my blog, it meant alot to read your thoughts on the topic of living and raising a child abroad.
    I haven't had a chance to peruse your blog but I will definately do so now. Luckily, I have a baby who likes his bedtime routine, so when he sleeps, he really sleeps!

  5. great post. love those flowers. The flowers look like my bouganvilla bush but the way they climb and clamor around looks like my crepe myrtles..hmmmm. Maybe you could get a skype system or eye camera for your computer to see your precious.

  6. Beautiful pictures...We're freezing right now with snow practically going sideways so I'll imagine myself surrounded by all that blue!

  7. Hi Denise, thanks for stopping by. I had to look up what "crepe myrtles" were and you are right, they do resemble the bugambilia. Now you made me think about doing some research. I will try and see what I find.
