Leslie Saeta's September Challenge- 30 Paintings in 30 Days- Day1






Day-1 Frangipanis

Frangipanis 

Frangipanis are called Temple flowers and graveyard flowers in various countries because they grow there without any care. Much like some wild bush  roses grow in various graveyards aroundAustralia.Frangipanis originate in Central America and grow into a candelabra shaped tree of around 5-8 metres.The flowers are whirled petals, five in number, but because the reproductive parts are deep inside the floral tube, it takes a very specialised pollinator to fertilise them.
