Promises 1


When we were looking out the windows in Winter I promised to come back in the spring and show you some of the flowers. This is the native frangipani outside the kitchen window. Doesn't look much like the real does does it?

Reflection:
Numbers 23:19 (New International Version)
God is not a man, that he should lie,
nor a son of man, that he should change his mind.
Does he speak and then not act?
Does he promise and not fulfill?

  1. Not in the least ... but ... it does look like a Chinese Star Jasmine a bit. Even the leaves, although a bit bigger than CSJ.

    Perfume?

  2. I knew you would ask that I and I don't really know. The tree is tall with no low branches, I had to use a long lens to get the shot. I could open the kitchen window but with temperatures in the low teens it's too darn cold even though the sun is shining.

    However, according to the web it does have a fragrance and hence the name for a plant that has nothing to with with the real plant.
