Yesterday's white flower post was just half of the whites we have blooming around here right now. I tried to narrow it down, but there are too many beauties to not share as many as possible. So here are some more...

Female Papaya Flower
Male Papaya Flowers and Male flowers used on a cake. As you can see the males grow in clusters and the females grow as single flowers. I like to use the male flowers because 1, they smell amazing and 2, it's ok to pick the males as they do not produce fruit.
Asparagus Fern. These little buggers are not really a fern and full of thorns that are like splinters. The smell early in the morning when the sun warms them is like hot buttered popcorn.
Madagascar Periwinkle. We have this in about 3 other colors as well.
Now we have been told this is a number of things, but we are pretty sure it's a Yellow Lemon Guava. It bears small pear shaped fruits about 1 1/2" long and tastes like a combo of bananas and grapes.
Spider Lilies
