It may be peony season in blogland, but I am officially besotted with frangipani---this beautiful yellow flower that grows prolifically in this Florida garden in both it's pink and yellow forms. It has the most amazing scent, almost a mix of floral and musky, that wafts through open windows and all around the garden when the wind blows. I've never encountered it before and was enlightened as to it's name by Grouchy who left a comment on a previous post. It is so delicious, I have set jars of it in the guest bedroom and bathrooms, office and on the living window sill mixed with a little bougainvillea for a particularly exuberant bouquet.
