This frangipani was seemingly just a dead branch when I picked up on a building site. It was about a foot long. I brought it home and stuck it in a pot, left it the full sun, watered it occasionally and presto!! It's been in the pot for about two years now. This is the first time it's flowered.

Not sure how I missed this earlier. It feels so soft. Great depth of field and lovely colour.

Very unique flower. I like the bright yellow against the varied tones of green.

That's amazing that you brought it back from near death. Nice, clean picture, and white/yellow really stands out well against the background. For some reason this flower looks really fragrant.

How cool is that! You must have a green thumb - aren't you a Taurus? That's a Taurus thing. Lovely photo - great detail. I don't know if they have a scent, but from your photo I imagine they do.
