Pink Hoya flowers in glorious full bloom... 5-shiny lustrous points atop 5-sided fuzzy petals

Explore Jul 31, 2009 #66

 

This is a view of this Hoya flower I have never seen before Macro... details I find hard to believe!

 

Fuzzy pentagonal petals with lustrous five-pointed stars on top. White stamens in the center. And these gorgeous blossoms are sparkling with tiny drops of this morning's rain.

 

Somehow in the process of uploading the unfolding Hoya buds, my previous Hoya in full bloom image was deleted. I have no idea how it happened, but it's gone and I'm sick and shaking. But wanting to show you all three stages nevertheless, I went back to my originals and this is the next shot in the series I took that day. Whew! I guess my stomach can begin to settle down now.

Hoya purpureofusca

Here is another picture of this beauty!
