Frangipani Update!

Frangipani

Remember those freaky monster plant worm things I showed you a couple weeks ago? Here's an update on how they're doing!


Frangipani

Hooray! It's looking more like a normal tree again! It doesn't look like it might eat me in my sleep!
(also check out that sexy bush of bird of paradise around the trunk!)

And it's getting ready to flower too! I can't wait! Frangipani are not only my favourite blossoms but they have a really lovely scent
(although right now our star jasmine is also in bloom; the smell of it is SO ingrained as "summer" in my mind.. remind me to take some photos of them later!)

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHman I am so so very jealous right now. These are plants that we keep in our greenhouse. 0.o V. excited about updates on them, too.

hee! I'm pretty sure they're not a native tree here, but they certainly are common and do VERY well! Trust me, there'll be plenty of more photos once the flowers start opening!

Hmmm ... I was at the L'Occitane shop in Madison a few weeks ago and they actually had a shea butter cream in their winter line that's frangipani scented. I guess it makes sense to put an Australian summer fragrance into a Euro-American winter product line.

From another angle, it's all marketing, I guess-- and if the name is unrecognizable or sounds exotic, all the better.

Anyway, I was wondering what frangipani was ... and now I know! I think there might actually be frangipani or something similar in the conservatory at Olbrich gardens-- the blossoms look very familiar!
