Frangipani

This is an interactive scratch and sniff post.ย 

These beautiful flowers are in full bloom in the heart of summer here in Cape Town. Even more beautiful is their heady scent wafting on the slight breeze. No wonder they are used to make garlands or leis to greet visitors to Hawaii.

    Ady had posted one of these flowers before and since they aren’t native to northern America (I think) I’ve never smelt one.
    I’m jealous! Now I just want to buy some nice smelling flowers…but since its FRIGGIN SNOWING, I’ll have to settle for air freshener from the bathroom or a scented candle.

      Yes, Ady did post a lovely photo of a frangipani; hers was a little more yellow in the outer leaves, mine is pinker.
      Either of your choices is pretty good ๐Ÿ™‚ And when you are basking in summer, I will be miserable in driving rain and gale force winds!

      I think it may be humans interface with computers with chips stuck in their heads that will stimulate the correct part of the brain to make you think you are smelling frangipani! ๐Ÿ™‚

        As it is growing for “free” in my front garden – Sorry Khloe, but nope, I can’t afford to buy from you!! ๐Ÿ™‚
        However, you could start a business whereby Airlines pay you to drape leis over new arrivals at HK airport ๐Ÿ™‚

    We have this in my little red dot. It used to be a must have flowerfor wreaths at funerals in 1950s and 1960s based on pictures seen along with Spider Orchids. I don’t know why but maybe it was pretty, fragrant and a majestic bloom. As our society grew affluent, people chose more exotic blooms for funerals. The Frangipani tree is not freely planted anymore and 2 trees are left at junction of Paterson Road towards Zion Road. The only Frangipani tree left I think, is in the Botanical Gardens that keeps our heritage trees!
    Our specie of flower is a bigger bloom and a lighter shade of yellow in the center.
    But yes, the fragrance is awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

        Yes….now our little red dot is hugely into tulips, tiger lilies, sunflowers and rhodendrons for special occasions! Florists make big bucks as a hand bouquet easily costs $50-$80 for couple of stalks. Do you know we are famous for orchids! But I find them plastic like. I prefer soft blooms ๐Ÿ˜‰

      That’s odd about the bath products, but I suppose they put all sorts in too. Never heard of Plumeria, interesting ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, and sorry your screen doesn’t work! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    When I moved to Brisbane as a teenager, the first thing that took my breath away was the neighbours frangepani. As we didn’t have them down in the cooler southern state, this tree and its flowers was simply magic.
