You can find plumerias in bloom anytime of the year in Hawaii. But different trees bloom at different times. The trees in my backyard are just beginning another cycle of flowers and leaves.

On a technical note, this pano is a departure from my normal style in that only one part of the image is in focus. Two reasons for this is that I wanted to be very close to the budding flowers and it was a little windy that morning. Thus the combination of a very close subject and a high shutter speed/close to wide open aperture gives a very different look to this pano from my previous ones.
