Hello Linda, I just wanted to drop by and let you know that I have shipped SeaLaura's shell mirror and you are next! I haven't forgotten you. I hope all is well and I love the header :)

Congrats..., it's wonderful to receive awards! And the Frangipani smell delicious.

Deborah said...

Awe, congrats!!! For some reason I thought you were an award free blog, or I would have given you a million already!!! I am coveting your Frangipani. Talk about Power Flowers. It is always so ZEN visiting you. **blows kisses** Deborah

Melissa said...

Goreous Frangipani. I don't think I've ever seen one in person.

Congratulations on all the awards--they are very well deserved by your fabulous blog!

Don't you adore the smell of summer flowers? I filled the house with oakleaf hydrangeas the other day, and noticed for the first time how very sweet they smell. Like sunshine. Who knew?

Helen said...

... why, thank you very much! The colors of your blog are SO Florida and I love looking at them.

Blue Muse said...

Well deserved recognition! I love your blog, and you, Ms. Linda!
Now, I must admit, I am not familiar with Frangipani! I'm going to have to trot on over to the nursery and see if that is something like likes the weather out here - it looks tropical -- is it? the scent you described is just irresistable!

Me loves the plumeria - and have a tree in our Brazilian backyard, too!

Linda at Lime in the Coconut! said...

Isa...Like little Happy Place mentioned, the frangipanni is also called a Plumeria. Originally from Hawaii (the flower is used in their traditional lei's) I imagine it might grow in your neck of the woods. I have one variety (pudicka) that is a bit more cold hardy (but not nearly as fragrant).

I am extremely envious...I LOVE the Frangipani! One year, we vacationed with our kids in Bali and every day when we would get back from the pool, they would throw fresh Frangipani into the whirlpool tup and have it swirling and ready in the room!!!! My girls loved it. I'm so jealous...they would not survive in our dry heat.

Farmgirl Paints said...

Thank you for the sweet words about my blog..luv you!!

I wish I was there to smell your wonderful flower, I forget the name. It sounds heavenly.

Terry said...

you have frangipani? i didn't know it would grow in fla. or maybe you just have a magical green thumb, which, judging from your beautiful garden pics, you certainly do. :)
the frangipani is also blooming here, and the smell is heavenly.
