Plumeria, also known as frangipani

Plumeria, also known as frangipani

On my run around the neighbourhood this morning, I almost stepped on this flower. I can’t help to pick it up as my object today.

Looking at it brings back memory of childhood, when my brothers, my sister and I used to “hunt” for either four petals or six petals frangipani. To be able to find one is considered good luck, as this particular species of frangipani commonly has 5 petals.

I found my last 4 petal frangipani about a couple of years ago in Singapore Botanical Garden, also during my morning run. Maybe I should run more regularly 🙂
