I took this picture of a plumeria flower on my trip to Hawaii a few years ago. This is one of the most common flowers on the island, they bloom everywhere and are typically used to make leis. For me, this flower brings back a lot of memories. Growing up in tropical Viet Nam, I was quite familiar with the fragrant smell of the plumeria, and they say smells strongly associate with memories. When I get a whiff of this sweet smelling flower, it brings back memories of my childhood at my grandmother’s house and makes me feel quite nostalgic.
