Mellow Yellow Monday-Frangipani Flowers

 Frangipani Flowers Frangipani Flowers Frangipani flowers, they are always one of my favorites. Just imagine the fragrance from this flowers, it can make me happy for whole day. They planted everywhere in Singapore, but just seldom people to plant it in their own garden. This is one kind of plants that are ways flowering, easy to take care, and won’t grow too big, pretty flowers with nice fragrance. Why people here don’t really like it. I was told this kind of trees attracted to ghost easily…I was told this kind of trees used to grow in the cemetery… I don’t believe there is so called ghost, if there is a ghost, it should be the one who lives in our deep of mind, the evil of our own, our own human bad points. Every one, as human is sure have some very bad points in deep of our own heart, that is our ghost. Lock it there and don’t let it come out to this world. No matter what religion you have, just to be kind to others and to be honest to yourself. I longed to write this post when I see frangipani flowers every day, on my way to office. Just some though here, you may not like it, but it is mine. Other yellowy things here.

It is a beautiful flower and one I did not know about.

I have to use the rec room computer to comment on your blog. My old 8 year old one doesn't show any comment box and thus, I am late in dropping by. Thanks for the blog mention for my bench blog below. (I left a comment there also.) Glad you enjoy it -- please come back when you can as I try to post a bench daily.

In the olden days, wreaths are made totally from this flowers, so people always associate it with death/ghost. The malays used to called this bunga cina mati due to it being present during the Chinese's funeral.
