In the sub tropical climate I live in, for me, the crowning glory of the summer flowers are the frangipani (plumeria)

Get closer and admire the variations of colour. This is a variety called “fruit salad”

Get even closer and be intoxicated with the sweet perfume.

This white with the yellow throat is the more common variety and it has the strongest perfume.
