Plumeria


If only I could capture the beautiful fragrance of this flower and send it though the internet lines right to you, then this sweet smell could make its way all the way around the world and back to me.

I intended to photograph something else for today, but was thwarted by automatic sprinklers. I'll try again later ... and until then ... I'm going to keep you guessing. ;-) So, for today you will be treated to this photo of a plumeria from my front yard.

Plumerias come in an amazing number of variations. This one is the most common here in Hawaii. This page has a lot of pictures of the different variations here on Oahu.

This flower is not familiar to me but looks gorgeous.
It's great to see the difference in cultivating flowers from country to country.
I can 'see' this one smells very nice.
Good luck with sprinklers next time =)

I love the scent and this yellow one does bring back the fragrant memories. My mum had our tree chopped down. We had the white ones. At night, the garden was divine!
