madhuri...its just not the flower petal...
if you look closely... the leaves often are different ...there is a
variablility inherent in the plumerias...

keep looking... we have several of these along my daily walk... all
have a just a tad bit different leaves or petals or even flower
scent... that 's what make the walk so interesting...

it just like the case of many of the sarcomas.... where there is
marked variability in the cells... if you keep looking at soft tissue
tumors... yet they are all sarcomas...

and here they are all plumeria obtusa...

it boils down to experience...
curiosity and willingness to put it together ( you have these last
qualifications in abundance)


your flower in thread "''For Id 14102011MR1’’ is older... opened the
day before... if you smell such a flower.. almost no scent... or very
faint.... do not inhale too deeply... many small pollinators hide in
the nectar tube...ha ha

Yes flowers smile, laugh, cry... even get mad...
didn't you know?  as do the leaves?
They even enjoy music and dance...

I am not joking....
its serious business... scientific business that is...
lot has been researched and written about....

And now I suspect they do not like cell-phone towers towering just above them...

Usha ji, thanks for this valuable information.  I know flowers laugh when they are happy, and cry when they are sad, but due to our own pre-occupation we fail to notice it.  Just once get fully identified with it and sit with them for some time and you will notice it.

Regards,

Mani Nair

Yes...  Mani ji, you are right.. most of us came to botany because of our love for greenery or for the love of flowers...

my current balcony is also full of flowers... all kinds.. warm weather tropicals , temperate zone and some cold weather  ones...  mostly very prolific ...

But the plants do not like to flower when people fight...
I have  neighbors who periodically  fight a lot among themselves, and their vibrations  must be reaching my plants, they shut down, stop producing flowers,  when the crescendo of their fights is at the height, my plants stop blooming...   when they go on vacation (long ones) of 3 -4 months like visiting their sons in us or uk... my plants bloom like crazy... and look very happy...and peaceful... ( not based on seasons... they go sometimes in winter, sometimes in summer , so my plants are responding to absence of negative vibrations regardless of season..  since they do not announce their departures, we learn of their absence by the profuse blooming ...   as if the plants are dancing in joy...  then we do our sherlock homes and confirm that they are gone taking their their vibrations)

I have learnt over the years to overcome the neighbors fights ( to a degree, not fully yet) by meditating near the plants, getting into their xylem and travelling around inside coaxing... or just floating, and playing devotional songs cds...  near the balcony... had to set up a separate music system with small speakers esp for the flowering plants..

My mom used to be able to talk to trees and they would visibly respond... I have seen it with my own eyes and even done some super8 movies... which at this point I dont own..  otherwise it would be a great small demo... I try to talk the way my Mom did ,   I am not there yet... but communicating with plants and asking them what they like is a very good way to nurture them...

Mysteries of life.... older I get more mysteries present themselves... and dogmas fall away....

Madhuri / Bhagyashri, see what you started...  keep doing it... makes me remember...
