Frangipani: Flower of the day, May 23, 2017


My plumeria tree just keeps on blooming this year.  The leaves are lusher than usual as well. I’ll try to enjoy them before the rains come and pick them all!

Plumeria (Frangipani): Flower of the Day, May 12, 2017


My plumeria tree is in full bloom right now.  It is in the lower garden right next to my pool, which is raised about 5 feet above it due to the fact that my house is built on a mountain.  So, the blooms are right at eye level and above.  Perfect to enjoy this lovely stage of growth.

Now, go see Cee’s tulip.  Spectacular!!!

Flower of the Day: Another Audacious Heliconia


There are so many varieties of Heliconia and some of them are often confused with Birds of Paradise, but each of the flowers in this photo, other than the red ginger, is a heliconia. From my friend’s garden in La Manzanilla, Mexico.

For Cee’s daily flower prompt.

Periwinkle! Flower of the Day


Thanks, Iwbut, Cee and Michele for identifying this little flower.  I’ve always loved the name periwinkle but never really knew what they looked like.
