Floral Friday: New Bloom

I'm excited to take part in Floral Friday, a monthly project started by the lovely Trishie from Under Lock and Key

The very first Floral Friday is all about new beginnings - a new bloom. Here in Australia we're in full summer mode and the lovely Frangipanis are uncurling their buds to release their pretty scent and happy blooms :) We currently have a tree outside our house and I remember having a tree at the house I grew up in with lots of lovely memories associated with it. Summer makes me happy and the New Year with all it's possibilities and new beginnings makes me super excited :)
Want to take part in Floral Friday yourself?
Floral Fridays is a monthly photography project with different themes each month. This series is about fun and taking time out to smell the flowers. To play along, please email Trishie (trishie@underlockandkeyblog.com) for next month's theme Make sure you check out the other bloggers involved below too!

  6. Beautiful photo. I love Frangipanis. I remember them from my childhood too. Isn't it funny how seeing a flower can bring back memories like that? You are lucky to have them in your garden now as well. I'm glad to have found you via Trishie's blog hop. Have a lovely weekend. sparkle2day.com

  14. That is so pretty! I'd be quite happy if I had a frangipani tree outside my house :) It's freezing in NYC right now so I'm just basking in your description of summer and the warmth of this image.
