This is definitely one of my favourite plants. The scent especially in the early evening is stunning.

Have a wonderful and peaceful weekend my friends.

    Gotta admit I have been taken with the simple beauty of this flower and never tire of seeing more pictures,

    Thanks M, and I shall oblige as I love taking them!

    I can almost smell it from here – did you use special scent enhancing JPEG compression?

    We call that flower “rand”. It flourishes well in Riyadh, and very beautifully too, but not at all in Jordan.

    Of course Ali, and I’m patenting the process!

    Roba, it’s probably too cold for it in Jordan. It’s also called “Indian Jasmine” here.

    Well, I must agree with your readers. The heady fragrance, the velvety petals – who could resist? (That’s why I even have it as an e-mail ID)

    Must agree. Stunning smell. Still remember it from when I lived in the Gulf. We’ve got plants like buddhlia in the UK but they don’t match frangipani

  8. I love frangipani! Lovely fragrance, but the feral cats love it too much, as well. They’ve taken to using them as scratching posts in my yard. I still have one left though.
