Yes the tree has all it's leaves and is now in full bloom. I should step back away and get a full shot of the tree.

Yep, really stunning. You've been posting nice photos of flowers for some time, but I think there is an improvement going from good to really really great

Ah, but that's one of the attractions of this tropical flowering tree, Norm. It's a frangipani (Plumeria sp.)... beautiful tree when in full leaf and flower, as this one is. In winter they drop leaves and look rather strange (witness mine at the moment, limbs look like gray sausages), but in spring and early summer, breathtaking. And very fragrant, too. Many different flower colors as well, although this white and yellow one is quite spectacular. EM's captured it perfectly!
