Wednesday's Window




This is a picture of our Hoya (wax plant) plant in bloom.

It flowers in a cluster and can have up to 40 individual flowers packed together.

    1. Yes, it's real. There is a slight fragrance to the flowers. The flowers stay in bloom for a few weeks. It's called a wax plant because it looks fake. ;)

    1. I'd never seen one until my boyfriend brought this over from a cutting he got. It took a few years to get comfortable before it bloomed.

    1. Thank you. I usually don't get such a nice clear picture. I guess I'm learning.

    1. It is exquisite. I was in awe when it began showing the flowers. I only wish I'd taken chronological photos. Maybe next year.
