Can almost feel the fragrance, great shot.

My mom used to grow frangipani down in south Florida, and she told me where the name ("french bread") comes from. If you look at the plant in winter (it is deciduous, even in Florida) the bare branches do sort of look like baguettes, or french bread. Et voila!

I sure miss the smell. And my mom, you can bet.

The flowers have such simplicity and softness to them.

Oh I wish that photo came with the fragrance! Lovely, especially against the blue sky.
