Pinwheel flower,Milky flower

I find this cultivar plant popularly grown besides sidewalks. Some may confuse it with sampaguita if viewed from a distance. It also smells nice but the aroma is not too strong compared with the sampaguita (jasmimium sambac).

I am trying to wean myself from hosting my photos in Facebook. You lose the information embedded in the photograph and at the same time, you will lose the original link to the copy of Facebook photo! Perhaps, Facebook does not want you to host your photos if you access them from other sites.
