  1. I love all the quotes that you have been sharing. I pass them on in hopes that they will inspire others.
    Growing up in Hawaii plumeria trees were abundant. We would pick them and string them into leis for birthdays and graduations, as well as, wear a single flower over our ear. Right side if you are single and left if you are taken. The plumeria brings back many memories. Thanks for the walk down memory lane.

    1. I grew up in Hawaii too and have the same memories of the trees. My house was the closest to the beach so my surfing buddies would meet at my house. When we came back to the house (poor mom) to refuel; we stuck the boards in between the branches of the plumeria tree in my backyard. We called it the Surfboard Tree.

  2. I love these flowers so much. A friend of mine had one of these trees and for years it never bloomed and he actually never even knew it could bloom. He had the tree for several years then two years ago out of nowhere it blooms and there are few flowers that compare to it’s simple beauty. Unfortunately last year my friend’s house burned down thankfully he made it out but the house was a total loss and lost all of his plants and his pets in the fire. He at least saw it bloom twice. I wish I knew where to get another one for him.

  3. I love this flower and the beautiful fragrance of it. Thanks Don, for some reason I knew it as ‘the easter flower’ for no reason and now I know the real name of it. 🙂

  4. How beautiful! I once went into a public restroom in Hawaii (LOL, expecting the worst) and somebody had plastered to the place with hundreds of plumeria and three lit candles. The contrast between the scary looking exterior and the magical environment inside is something I’ll never forget. Now you know my darkest secrets, I can be enchanted by a bathroom. 🙂

  5. On our property here in Vanuatu, Don, we have about eight or nine different varieties which, in flowering season give us a constant bouquet of awesomeness. My fondest memory of these flowers is of flying into Tahiti at about 2.00 a.m. and having my senses assaulted by the perfume of Frangipani as we stepped off the plane onto the tarmac. Nature at its best…..

  6. How did you discover these I wonder…not many know this flower, only one other that I know of and you spelt it correctly. So lovely.

    1. LOL, through my own mistakes … I posted “pretty flowers” and I’ve got a few botanist readers who clued me in … They are quite popular in Thailand, come in different colours, and have a lovely scent …
