Gwen they are just so beautiful and everyone of them different too the one after it, except 4 & 5 they are very similar. I must say I like that last one the tricolour with half a petal yellow and pink or is it orange, its a eye catcher..

The first one Sibling Sara is gorgeous also, I imagined my J.L.Pansy to be like that one only a brighter pink..

Always a joy to look at your Plumerias. Thanks for sharing banana banana

Wow! They are gorgeous, Gwen, I'd be so proud of having grown them if I was you. Their scent must be divine too. They seem so exotic and tropical compared to my cottage garden sorts of plants. They make mine look mundane.

Thank you MA , the ones that are having their 2nd season of blooming are much more intense in colour this time . The little "sibling sara" is named for my grandaughter , she's 6 and is a dainty little pet , the flower really suits her.
I stll have about 7 that are yet to bloom.I hope your back has recovered .
I am very late today , just got up at 4pm . I had a bad episode at 1 am this morning had to buzz Faye who was sound asleep and for the next 2 1/2 hours I was shivering , sweating , shaking , feeling bilious and generally in a distressed state. Thank goodness Faye has had 30 years nursing behind her , she said at one stage she nearly called the ambulance but my pulse improved , my blood preasure was in by boots and the heart was not pumping well . But all ended ok I am feeling a lot better now although not back to normal yet .
Betty I hope you work out your posting problems. And I do love the pastel tones of your cottage type garden , to me its far from mundane.

Oh dear Gwen I do hope you recover very quickly.
What did Faye think you may have had?

All I can say about the pics is "WOW"

So sorry to read this Gwen, what a terrible night you had and Thank Goodness you have Faye there and her nursing experience, any ideas as to what caused this to happen.. I am so relieved to read that you woke so late so I am hoping that you rested well and long in that time.

Its was not caused by you trying to help with the watering is it Question

When tomorrow comes you will rearing to get into that buggy/scooter of yours
And do burnouts around the garden whistle ..... Maybe..

Thanks all for you concern . I asked Faye she said it was "Postural Hypo Tension" Whatever it was I DON'T WANT IT TOO OFTEN.i'm feeling a lot better today and will go out later hooning.We got rain in the night a whole 1.6mm any thing helps.
Betty I dont take boquets for the frangi's growth and beauty that is because of living in the tropics and being blessed with red volcanic soil , one you have that combination you just stick a cutting in the soil and get results.
I hope you all have a nice wednesday.

Goodness, Gwen, bet you got as big a scare as Faye must have. Without having all those symptoms, I do know how lousy you feel when your blood pressure goes very low, damn doctor once nearly killed me by keeping me on BP medication that has a diuretic in it, when my entire metabolism had already slowed down due to an underactive thyroid. I rang him and told him I was taking myself off it.
I do hope you don't have to go through that again, you sounded really very sick. there there
I can't look at your flowers by the way without thinking of sun, white sand and a turquoise sea. I'll bet there are still people up there who can't strike cuttings regardless, I think you are doing a great job. thumb2
