Today's Flowers #55 / Hawaiian Plumeria
The Hawaiian Plumeria is very sentimental to me. I marvel at the many Plumeria trees on the islands every time I am there. Their scent can be intoxicating on a sultry Hawaiian evening... I have brought cuttings home and keep them in very large pots as to protect them from much cooler winter nights here, than in Hawaii. I photograph them often because it gives me such satisfaction. Despite our intense heat spell right now...they are thriving. Be sure to click on each to enlarge.
