Lavender Splash blossom pixs

labland(Inland Valley CA9)October 31, 2010

OK, Photobucket finally created an app for iPad users, so now I can post pictures without changing to a different computer.

These are pictures of my newest plumeria that blossomed this year, Lavender Splash, It is always exciting to see a new blossom at least for me a relatively new plumeria lover. I love plumerias because my family moved to Hawaii 38 years ago, after I got married. Now, only my sister is alive, both parents having passed away, their ashes distributed in the ocean off Oahu. Plumerias remind me of my family, and their beautiful home. I had never realized that the weather in the inland empire was conducive to growing plumerias, I always thought it would be too hot. Hah!

Anyway, this first pix is when the blossom first began to open, so exciting;

This second shows how the blossoms lighten up as they age;

This shows why I think it is called Splash;
