Blossom, early or late

I said before that The Man and I had finally learned how to tell the difference between cherry and plum blossoms. It turns out I was wrong. Neither of us can decide what this one is. It is either an early cherry or a late plum.

But who cares? The blossoms are just coming out, and they're lovely. (Click to enlarge.)

In my capacity as the city boy who has served national service, I recognise this as a Frangipani.

(... obviously the wrong answer, but that was what it looked like to me. The petals of a Frangipani look stronger and smoother, with a slight yellow tinge radiating out from the centre of the flower. That is, if what I have seen in the jungles of Singapore are what you call Frangipani.)

Gorgeous indeed; a fine photo. I don't think we have anything quite like this in our near-tropical latitude. Private gardens, maybe; definitely not a common sight here.

Nice picture.
now, about my page, the image is behind the text and its black so it just blends in with the text. I want to lighten the image text so that its grey but I dont have anything xcept paint installed on my laptop right now. and sadly, the problem is still there. I can only see one post. the next post appears with the comment after i click the comment button.
