I wonder why they're called in that color when they are so brilliant white.
It's one kind of flower that I missed. It is very fragrant especially at night. I had 2 trees of this that never failed to bloom all year round. It always filled my house with its fragrance. When we moved to our recent house, I could only move the potted plants.
"White...is not a mere absence of colour; it is a shining and affirmative thing, as fierce as red, as definite as black...God paints in many colours; but He never paints so gorgeously, I had almost said so gaudily, as when He paints in white."
-- G. K. Chesterton
