It wouldn't be summer in the coastal areas of Australia without the scent of frangipani.

  3. I have heard of frangipani, but did not know it was a beautiful flower. (Ashamed to admit I thought it was something to do with marzipan.) It would be great if smells could come through the computer wires.

  4. The flower does look like it's made of spun sugar, so in that way it must be related to marzipan. Thanks for educating those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. Here's Mine

  16. I used to carry a few petals of frangipani in my pocket when I was young. The fragrance lasted for days.
    Beautiful clear photos.
