Plumeria blooms emerging

This week’s Sunday Stills challenge theme is ‘Emerging.’ See more responses here.

A while ago I posted a photo of Plumeria buds (here). I returned to that tree several times over the next few weeks and took photos of the same cluster of buds and then flowers to see how they developed. Plumerias aren’t one-bloom-and-done trees. Instead, there’s a continual production of buds, which bloom and die.

I like the swirls and colors of the buds and the different stages of the flowers emerging. I’m not the only one. All kinds of insects can be seen on both the buds and the flowers.

    You had me at your title, Graham! You know my obsession with plumeria and my somewhat successful attempts to grow them in Sacramento. I rehomed two plants to my daughter in San Diego where plumeria grow like crazy there. Like your gorgeous yellow blooms, the same yellows grow into huge trees/bushes in my daughter’s neighborhood. We’ll be visiting down there next month and I can’t wait to see them. Thank you for sharing your emerging plumeria blooms, I bet they smell amazing too!
