Several months out of the year the Plumeria looks like a stick. It has several branches that are barren and without leaves. Then it comes into its own and produces these lovely leaves and eventually beautiful fragrant yellow blossoms. This plumeria has survived hurricane Rita and was a gift. My friend was sent many broken branches after the hurricane which she gently nurtured and rooted. She has given most of them away as gifts. Who knows how far from Florida these rescue plumerias have travelled. It reminds you not to count anyone out. The will to survive is amazing.Please remember to use the PicLens which highlights the details of the photos.
