This is a species of the frangipani. We have lots of this in Hong Kong. The botanical name is Plumeria rubra var. acutifolia. We collect the flowers and use them as one of the ingredients to brew a kind of herbal tea that helpsdetoxification and the dissipation of excess'heat'in our body. When the branch of this tree is broken, a white sticky and poisonous sap will exude from the point of breakage. So,on the watch out again this exuda.

thank you so much /T and Flut lady!
Makes me feel good, when I get commits like that from you. I get so frustrated trying to get anything worth keeping with the lenses I have. :sad:
I wasn't going to post this one but it gives a better idea of the overall plant. the sun was so bright it made the hilights blow out...
