Winner, flower-wise

We've had a couple of botanic winners this year. The fig out back was hugely fertile, just poured out dozens and dozens of the best figs I have ever eaten, perhaps the best fruit I have ever eaten. I was really proud of it.
And this bougainvillia in the front yard just dug in and worked really hard this summer, throwing off hundreds of gaudy blossoms. I wonder what 10 inches of rain will do to the plants in the yard. The tomatoes and cukes have already burnt up, and everything else's looking stressed.
