Frangipani flower with six petals


My frangipani flower has six petals, not five like all the other frangipanis in southeast Queensland. This has to be as lucky as finding a four-leaf clover in Ireland.

The frangipani remains my favourite flower. It doesn't stay on the tree for very long before it floats to the ground where it becomes accessible to the passerby. It's not unusual to see a frangipani adorning the hair of officer workers in the city of Brisbane....it's the perfect natural hair accessory.

Lucky? Why? I just got 6 petals here, I'm in Bali island...

Most frangipanis have 5 petals. Sometimes you find a different number. You can choose to feel however you want. When I find 6 petals I take my cue from the Irish who think a 4 leaf clover is lucky (there is usually only 3). Go check out the other frangipanis in Bali and see how many petals the average flower has. J
