Michelia figo

(banana bush)


Around my entrance is filled with the smell of vanilla from these flowers of vanilla ice cream color.  













Do you feel the smell?

These are beautiful. I love the colors with the purple edges. You raise beautiful flowers and do very nicely on photographing them.
