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.

My mom used to grow plumeria in South Florida. I love them. This is a beautiful photo, and thanks for visiting my blog.

Your shots of the Plumeria are wonderful and a lovely little visitor there also. Plumeria is one of the prettiest scents in the flower world I agree. Thank you for sharing.
