This is a frangipani flower in the palm of wooden Buddha in Thailand. I saw this picture last year when I was waiting at the ferry terminal in Sechelt. It reminded me of the flowers I saw in Bali. aAnd yes you can see them quite a lot in Hawaii, Malaysia and Australia. They were in my wedding bouquet as well. I thought it would be perfect for a nursery. And yes, I bought it for my adopted child because that was the same weekend I started my blog. I had stopped waiting for BFPs and just relax miracle pregnancies. I just wanted something to look forward to and be excited about. This was before the home study, the subsequent fallout, all my "processing", blah di blah.
A frangipani symbol means "Shelter". It's meaning is that "I will protect you from anything evil." That's a good sentiment. don't you think?
