Nope those are plumeria. (Frangipani) Cancun Pink AKA Playfull variety. They are pretty and smell amazing. I give my plumerias (i have several
hence my avatars etc) cute nicknames. The one in my avatar i nicknamed after my girlfriend. hence why that pics stays around for so long as my
avatar. In honor of her.
I like orchids too. I have a few phalaenopsis but my favorite are dendrobiums. But alas not humid enough to grow them here in la. Strangely ive
gotten my heliconia rostrata to bloom once here but that was near impossible.
Anyway, pack on topic to thwart the mods from deleting my post....
If you live in southern california take the time mid week nights to drive along the 14 highway.
Explore other highways that off shoot from the 5 or 14 in that area. Lots of hidden places with amazing activity to visit besides the obvious places
like edwards p42 etc... Id recommend if you have the time considering exploring the adjacent valleys, canyons and mountains. Dont worry if google
maps says theres nothing to see there. There might be. Try searching areas that alreadu have some layer of control or restricted access even if
open to the public.
Take the 14 up towards mojave city. Camp out by red rock or jawbone. That puts you between edwards and china lake. Probably lots to see. Make a
weekend out of it. Bring your fishing polls and enjoy one of the many fine lakes southern california has to offer while enroute to your camping
spot. Have a catfish dinner campout. Dont forget the hotsauce to make them channel flatheads palitable. Also bring a jacket it will fall in the
winter below freezing in the desert as the evening progresses.
Look high like straight up to catch jets doing odd things. Look towards the horizons to see things skitter from one end to the other. Think thats a
odd looking star...keep your eye on it. It may just get up and shuffle off somewhere. You never know.
Get bored or are tired of eating catfish or stripped bass...hit up the In N Out Burger off rosemond and eavesdrop on workers heading back home after
an long day of frustrating work at the local plants etc. .
Best thing about southern california is the best places to see crazy stuff, and i mean crazy stuff, arent obvious and often hidden in plain site.
Another good thing about southern california is that it also caters to lazy aviation fanatics. They take the show to youuuuuuu!!! I saw the
greenlady once hauling ass while standing on my side walk. Ive seen what appears to resrmble the tr3b on more than one occasion flying right over my
house. Ove seen what appeared to resrmble a oversized sleek and badass looking fighter jet cruise adroitly through low clouds in broad daylight.
Just gotta look up more often and pay attention. Youd be surprised what you can see stargazing on your sidewalk at 3am.
