This is what my frangipani looks like in summer. The heady aroma greets you each time you step out of the door. Instead of stopping to smell the roses, you stop to drink in this exotic scent.
I like how new petals unfurling look like some sort of strawberry dessert.
post script: The results of yesterday’s Haiku vote in Twins

Final tally: Haiku 9 received 6 votes; Haiku 10 received 3 votes.
Thank you very much to all who participated. It was very interesting reading about the reasons for your preferences. Thanks also for the nice comments on the photo. I took some trouble with that, as I like things to be symmetrical, but when I arranged the vase of flowers this way, in the pattern of sunlight filtering through the windows, the flowers were in shadow and too dark. I had to position them just so to catch the light and cast an interesting shadow themselves.
