Plumeria (frangipani) and sidewalks

Walking along the sidewalks in the evening, you might encounter some freshly fallen plumeria blossoms at your feet. Perfectly milk-white with butter-yellow centers, they don’t even look like real flowers. You probably didn’t realize that the tree stretching overhead was in flower until one perfect frangipani bloom dropped in front of you. But, it’s a good thing you looked down to see that flower, because you’re going to need to watch your step on these horribly uneven and broken sidewalks. The number of times I’ve taken what seemed like a normal step and ended up a jaw-jouncing 6 inches lower than I intended is far more than I care to admit.

Luckily, I’m providing some amusement for others around me. And that’s why I do it, really.

  1. WOW…. watch out for that giant hole in the ground! I would probably fall in it.
    The flowers are beautiful. You can probably make your own natural perfume while you are there.
