Carolyn J. Connolly level-classic September 27, 2006

WOW, Stan - this is absolutely GORGEOUS...and I LOVE your title for your image, too!! Frangipani are definitely near the top of my list of all-time favourite flowers, and even though the pink ones are V-E-R-Y pretty, I think I'd have to go a l-o-n-g way to beat the sheer elegance AND beauty of this more 'common' variety!! :o) #3370681

Carolyn J. Connolly level-classic September 27, 2006

Sorry, Stan - I forgot to mention how much I LOVE the FABULOUS raindrops on the petals of this bloom!! In my view, they just complete an already EXQUISITE floral image!! :o) #3370686

Stanley J. Contrades September 27, 2006

I guess I've shot more plumeria than any other flower and maybe it's because they are so prevalent here, not to mention their fragrance that draws you to them :-)!!
Thanks very much once again, Carolyn, and I am grateful for your taking the time to stop in and comment!
With fondest Aloha,
Stan #3374850
