Plumeria flowers - Frangipani


Nothing is beautiful or ugly in itself,
Beauty lies in the beholder's eye.
The more a thing attracts,
the lovelier it seems.
~Bihari, The Satasai

i know the common name is Frangipani, you should really start to call them Plumeria from now onwards :)

Oh well, I guess the common name 'frangipani' just makes me feel nostalgic. Plumeria it is and have changed the title to include this scientific name.

Thanks for the site, it's very informative. Now I know what you mean when it comes to proper labeling. 'Frangipani' just evokes all kinds of memories for me. Will explore more of the site when the plumeria bug strikes again :-)
