Bloomin' Tuesday

Today I am joining Jean at Ms Green Thumb Jean's Blog for Bloomin' Tuesday.

It has been so hot here lately that my garden is really suffering.  The last couple days it has been around 110.  Very hot! 

I thought I would show you my Plumeria flowers.  They seem to be doing really well in this heat!   These are the Hawaiian flowers that you make a Lei out of!  I have 6 plants in my garden. They are very hard to grow!

These are my yellow Plumeria flowers.  I also have pink and white ones!

Have you ever tried to make a Hawaiian Lei?  It is really easy.  It takes around 50 Plumeria Blossoms to make a 40" lei.  Pick them and spray them with water to keep them fresh.  Take a large stainless steel needle with fishing line or strong thread and thread it through the center of each flower.   After you have all the flowers on the string tie the end!  That is it!  It is very easy and they not only smell so good but they make a great gift for someone to wear on a special day!

Those are gorgeous, Miss Ann!
I'll bet they would make a beautiful lei!

I love plumeria -- so beautiful and so fragrant. I wish I had it in my yard!

I love the smell of plumeria! That is amazing that you can grow them in southern California. You have a green thumb for sure. Mimi
