The Plumeria Tree

The flower behind the ear, something you will see at every turn here in Hawaii. The plumeria is the most popular flower to do that with. An unmarried woman will put the flower behind her right ear and the married woman will put the flower behind her left ear. I think I have more Plumeria Trees on my property than anything. The fragrant smell at times is so strong. That's one of the reasons I planted so many, not to mention they are so easy to root and grow. My daughter will go out into the yard and pick the flowers by the pile, bring them in and disperse them throughout the house. Sometimes I will be just sitting there and get a smell of it and think "what is that smell, mmm", then notice the flower lying there. My wife will take the children for walks around the neighborhood and gather plumeria and make leis for the whole family, an event at school or when guests are expected.

Hi Patrick,

Oh I just love these.  Lucky you, you've got them everywhere! I have a pink one as my current screen saver.

And I've got one (white and yellow face) myself in my back yard. One thing I love the most about this one is that it came from a cutting of a very dear lady who's home I sold years ago. It's one of those little things that touches my heart.
