This is the yellow one and it bloomed out while we were in Las Vegas last week. Yellow is one of my favorite colors.
Randy's sister, Dorothy Ann, gave us all these. They are huge and I plan to cut them back when we bring them into the garage this winter.
I also have a new red plumeria that a sweet friend brought back to me from Hawaii. She returned to Arkansas recently when her husband was deployed to Afghanistan. She brought me five cuttings and I planted one and shared the others. Mine is about 8 inches tall and looks like a stalk. I don't know how long it'll take for it to bloom...maybe even 2-3 years??
Plumerias are very easy to grow, but I don't think you could grow them further north than we are in southern Arkansas. They like sun and humidity. Rather early in the fall we bring them into our garage. They stay there all winter with no watering. All the leaves fall off. In the late spring Randy puts them back out on the deck and waters them good. Soon they begin to leaf out. They haven't bloomed every year, but now they are taller than me.
I have certainly done a terrible job on the spacing of the pictures in this post, but apparently I still have a lot to learn about this blog site. I can't get the pictures quite where I want them, nor can I delete any of them. Maybe next time...

The reason I'm motivated to post now is because I have a new friend Lavonda, and she has a very active blog. I love reading hers so I had to figure out how to sign into Google so when I comment on her blog, I will get an email when/if she answers back. Her husband Rick is an insurance adjuster and they travel all over the U.S. in their 5th wheel RV. When they are deployed, they have to leave at the drop of a hat and may be driving clear across country. As you may guess, we met at EZ Daze RV Park in Southaven, MS. Most of you probably know that we spend a LOT of time there for Randy's job. So Lavonda and I had a good time for a couple of days talking about the fun (and not so fun) aspects of RVing. You might want to check out her blog at http://www.writeforhim.blogspot.com/ ... I think you'll be blessed if you do.
We have a heat advisory here in Arkansas all weekend so we're just staying in, eating blt's and corn on the cob. The only other thing interesting going on is the tree croaker on our living room window. At first he was in the plumeria (our beautiful Hawaiian plant getting ready to bloom). Then he ooched over onto the window, so I've been trying to catch him moving around. And I did!

Oh! And don't forget! Be sure to stop by and meet Doe and his son (Doe) on your way in or out. The ladies always get a hug!
We were full, but not too full to play several rousing hands of Spades when we got home. I won't say who won!
