Flor de Mayo (Plumeria) in my Mazatlán garden

May 6, 2012

I am in love with some of the plants that are just ordinary plants around here. But to me they are spectacular – especially the lovely flor de mayo – or to most of you – plumeria. I suppose if someone from Mazatlán moved to Washington State they would be similarly stunned by the rhododendrons and azaleas seen everywhere!

I have been playing around with my camera and working on making my photos a bit more memorable.  I hope you like them.

    1. I have loved Plumeria ever since I was a kid and going to Kona, Hawaii with my folks. The white are very fragrant and used in the making of leis. I love that we have them here to enjoy also. Thanks for the photos Nancy.

    1. Nancy, these are stunning. Definitely memorable. It’s a gorgeous plant we will never see here in Winnipeg. Best we have here currently are some flowering shrubs, which are pretty in their own way. Oh, some tulips and daffodils are out too.

      1. Lisa, I’ve never been to Hawaii, this is the extent of my knowledge of tropical plants… but I love them!

        Ingrid, Thanks! They are even better in real life.

        Marty, Thanks – yes, my little Sony is doing just fine for now. I still have the itch for a better camera but for now I am trying to teach myself some new tricks!

    1. I like this new (to me) way of showcasing a photograph. That first one is a stunner.

    1. OMG…my favorite flower. Before we RVed we use to go to Hawaii for 3 weeks annually. Nancy, if you ever get to the Isla soon, please take a photo of my plumerias for me.

      1. Laura, Copa de Oro and bougainvillea are all over here in Mazatlán, too. Love them!

        Sandy, Thanks so much!

        Zoe, Thanks, I am having fun!

        Contessa, When we go to Isla we don’t usually go as far as your place but if we do, I’ll take a photo.
