I'm not sure what this flower (or weed?) may be, but I think it's beautiful!
It is chicory, a wild herb, not a weed. The root can be used to make a coffee like drink. Just be careful not to harvest from roadside where the plant has been exposed to carbon monoxide from cars.

Geezum Pete! You should frame that picture! What kind of flower is that? (11/12/2008)
Very beautiful and very touching, that is from my home town San Diego. I'm sitting here in Missouri, missing San Diego! Though I must admit, I miss it most in the dead of winter when I am freezing and have to take doggie outside
for wee-wees! (11/12/2008)

Does anyone know what kind of flower this is? Awesome. (11/14/2008)
I'm positive that is a plumeria. We were in Hawaii this spring and the plumeria trees were just in bloom. They almost look artificial in their perfection. I brought back some starts so hopefully I will have some blooms here at home.
