Frangipani Friday! (Flower Friday)

Oh. My. Goodness. Did I forget to post a photo of a frangipani last month?

Raindrops on Frangipani Petals

Dang, I may just have to post two photos this month to make up for it, lol! 😉



Just a hint of blush in the morning light!


What can I say but… so many frangipani, so little time, lol!

These are some of the beautiful pale-pink frangipani we found in Sydney’s Royal Botanical Gardens.

Blushing Pale Pink Frangipani

And you know what? This isn’t the last frangipani photo I have either but I promise I’m going to attempt to limit myself to just the ONE frangipani photo ONCE a month.

Then again, perhaps I could simply rename Flower Friday to Frangipani Friday... now THERE’S an idea, lol! 🙂





Pink and Pretty – Flower Friday

What better for Flower Friday than this glorious hot pink frangipani we discovered in Sydney’s Royal Botanical Gardens.

Up Close Hot Pink Frangipani

Every time I look at this flower with the raindrops still upon it, I think of our time in Sydney… good times, good times!


All Growed Up!

This is what Monday’s Macro of Frangipani buds looks like when they are all grown up!

All Growed Up - Frangipani Bunch

Walking around Sydney’s Royal Botanical Gardens in the light rain was rather, uncomfortable, at the time shall we say. In retrospect however, seeing all the photographs I took with fresh raindrops on them… what’s a little rain, huh?!

We could have walked around these gardens for hours except one unnamed thirteen year old was not as enamoured with all the blooms as the rest of it. There are only so many times a mother can hear… “mum, how much longer?”

New beginnings…

As you may have noticed I’ve been doing a little “Spring Cleaning” with my blog… new name, new look!

With the pending anniversary of “mum, how much longer“, it had me rethinking the purpose of this blog. Something which has changed rather substantially with my father’s passing and my mother’s subsequent move into a high-care nursing home distinguishing her interest in computers. Conclusion… time for a change!

Our move to Canada has rekindled my love of photography hence I wanted my blog’s name to kinda reflect that, kinda, lol! So, back to photography…

Budding Frangipani Buds

Hopefully this change will be as smooth and seamless as the beginning of this bunch of Frangipani we happened upon whilst in Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens.

Having grownup with many a Frangipani tree in our gardens, it’s hard to believe I had never seen just how these beautiful blooms begin their life. It was simply incredible to see.
