Squares in September: Pink #Plumeria

I am excited to contribute to Becky's photo challenge Squares in September, In the Pink! While in San Diego for my 40th high school reunion last week, we stayed at my daughter's house. All around her neighborhood are yards and gardens lush with plumeria, my other favorite flower! I love how this cluster peeked at me …
