Wild Plumeria Tree [Wild Frangipani Tree]

I guess, many of you have seen the flowers of this tree. They are just gorgeous. For those who haven't, one day, I will take a nice close-up of its flowers to show to you all. Unfortunately, while taking this picture, neither did I have a long telephoto lens, nor was it possible for me to get close enough to any flower.

And oh yes! I remember, we used to make rings of its flowers, in our childhood. It's difficult to express without a video. I'll have to get a flower first!

  10. This tree grows all over Hawaii and is a popular, though short lived, lei flower. I've always loved the sweet smell and it, along with the extremely fragrant tuberose ( which I've seen in Little India in Singapore and think you must also have in India )are my two favorite flowers for leis.

  14. It's a beautiful tree - it almost looks at odds with the desert-like surroundings!

  15. @ Clytie: My belief is that the desert like place in the background was a lush forest a few decades back!
