Evening White Flowers 1P

White Evening Flowers

Some white flowers that “live” just near the entrance to my apartment complex. The photo was taken early evening on my way out to shoot sunsets on the beach 🙂

The lower leaves have the lovely yellowy-glowy light that comes with a sunset … No idea what the flower/plant is called, but I’m sure amongst my 13000 followers there’s a botanist somewhere ! Evening White Flowers 1P Evening White Flowers 1P

  1. No doubt you already know they are Frangipani. They come in other colours also. I have a white frangipani growing in my front garden. It was taken from a cutting from the tree at our last home that was taken from a cutting from the tree that was in my grandmother’s garden. It also comes in various colours ranging from deep red to beautiful pinks. And I love them. 🙂

    1. Thanks Helen, Seems there are three names so far … oh and one red herring, Charly reckons it’s a lilly, but he’s a kidder !

      And I don’t consider myself an expert photographer, I just go out with my iPhone and try and take nice photos … often it seems to work out … I was thinking of posting some of my disasters so people can see that it’s practice and repetition that breeds the skill.

  2. First off, you do not have 13000 followers!! I know since I have 65.999 million people following me and wordpress says there are 60 million poeple.

    And second off, I do like the pictures. You always put some strange cool pictures up.

    And third off, I am an expert botanist, so they are called lilleys.

    1. First off, you are right, I have 12,799 WordPress/gravatar followers, 265 Twitter followers, 216 Facebook followers, 68 Tumblr Followers and 293 Google+ Followers … So I’ll give you that one dude …

      Second off, thanks dude, you’ve lovely of you 🙂

      And third off, not, but I think if you read some of the other comments you’ll find out …

      Stay frosty …


    1. I didn’t get a smell, I’ll try it next time … I’ve seen them growing on trees so must be a big plant when it grows up … and thanks for filling in my botany knowledge 🙂 Warm regards DC

      1. You’re welcome. It’s a medium-sized tree, not huge. Very tropical.
        I didn’t realise until just now that you had replied to my comment. In some way, I’m still a bit WP-challenged — I just discovered that there is a Facebook-stye ‘notifications’ icon at the top right corner of my blog!

      2. LOL yup comments are available in several places, none of which is completely perfect, still have trouble following threads and conversations on other people blogs … do my best all I can do 🙂 warm regards DC

  3. Thanks for the follow! People in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand call these fragrant flowers Frangipani. They also come in pink and red (rare). Have a good weekdend!

  4. Hi Don, Thanks for the follow. These flowers are commonly called Frangipani in Asian countries like Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. White is the most common but some species come in pink and even red.

    1. That’s awesome, so I do have some botanists in my midst … much appreciated, as I don’t know where to start or how long it would take me to identify a species of plant !

      Since photographing this one I’ve seen quite large trees with this flower on, photographed one today …

      Warm regards


    1. Often I don’t see it myself it’s only when I get home and look at the images on the computer I see how beautiful it is … within that photography is teaching me to be more observant, and amazing all the sights I would normally just walk past, that I don’t miss now I’m taking photos 🙂

  5. Beautiful photo, beautiful flower! I’m not a botanist, so I can’t tell you what sort of flower they are. “Live” doesn’t have to be in parentheses though; plants are very much alive! They also move and such. They just live in “slow motion” from a human perspective. 🙂

    1. Thanks 🙂

      And those aren’t parenthesis, they are double quotes, and I put them there for reason … that is to indicate that I was talking about the plant’s location, where it resides, not whether it was dead or alive, I’m very well aware that plants are alive …

      Warm regards


      1. No worries and probably a little sharp on my part … I’m still learning to word things smoothly, and in English it’s so very easy to be ambiguous !

        Thanks for you kind comments …

        Warm regards
