Fragrant plumeria shine brightly in the Hawaiian sun, spreading aloha for all passers-by.
This flower seems to be the most memorable for visitors. For those who grow up on the islands and move away, finding a mainland plumeria instantly transports them home.
It is amazing how we are wired for smell. Catching the scent of something this strong can bring on a flood of memories. We love the memories we have that are tied to the plumeria.
