I'm dreaming of a white (and frequently fragrant) Christmas

Courtesy of:

The driveway spider lilies Hymenocallis littoralis

the Murraya hedge 

the hammerhead frangipani, Plumeria pudica

the evergreen frangipani, Plumeria obtusa

and a little snapdragon.

In the meantime, even though it is cloudy and sprinkling, the pooches and I are heading for the beach.  Happy holidays!


  1. What a great white Christmas you're having! The Murrayas are blooming here too, and filling the air with their beautiful perfume. Your Hymenocallis look fantastic, and I love the white Snapdragon. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.

  2. Many white flowers in your garden! Merry Christmas to you!

  3. Now that's the type of 'white' Christmas I would love to have! Have a merry one!

  4. A different but just as beautiful white Christmas ...
    I love Plumeria!!! I think heaven must smell like plumeria.

    Merry Christmas!

  5. You are SO lucky to have these! I have a few of them but yours look so healthy. Spider lilies are so cool!
    Have a White Christmas. :-)

  6. Christmas was lovely. Hope yours was too. I didn't quite make it to the beach, but had a lovely time exploring my brother's garden. The hymenocallis are at their peak at the moment. I have had some issues with mealy bugs from time to time, but I suspect they muscle in on stressed plants, and mine are extra good now the wet weather has started. Cobalt Violet, I agree about the scent of the plumeria. It has a real sweetness without become cloying, and floating a couple of the flowers in a low bowl makes the prettiest centrepiece.
