Hi, Valkyrien, I told Jean that I was going to be bringing her a photo of your hoya, and she is simply thrilled. She said to tell you thank you, even before she sees the photo!

Judy sa...

Oh, and it is well worth the wait, too!

VALKYRIEN sa...

Thanks Judy! Hope your friend will like them!

Valkyrien, a wondeful shot of the porcelain like petals with the light shining through. I do love these plants. They scramble up trees and as you show they are just as happy in a pot.

They are so beautiful. I never could get mine to bloom. Not enough patience I suppose. It is also called the Wax Flower here. It smells so heavenly also--like strawberries I think.
Your skywatch picture is gorgeous also. MaryBeth

Beautiful..and the angle on the second one is stunning! Nice contribution!
My header you mentioned overlapping..well, I figured something out- that it's only certain computers that are seeing this? I wonder on the Kilauea Poetry site if what you see as it's enlarged but behind the columns as well? Thank you so much for the imput and comments

Very beautiful flowers perfectly photographed. "Porcelain flower" is a very nice name for this elegant creature. In my country, it is known as "wax flower" because its texture looks like wax.

Have a nice week!
