The bloom on my Hoya (Star of David, Wax Flower) has opened up and completely gob-smacked me – how gorgeous is this flower?!

This picture was taken on May 2, 2018, when I was getting pretty excited about this plant blooming!

And here she is in all her glory! There’s a lovely, delicate scent to go along with this bloom… wish you could all smell it too!

Terry’s Anthurium

Terry’s Anthurium has bloomed for the first time since before he died. Kyla gave him this plant when she moved out a few years ago, and he doted on it like it was his child. I had been promising him that I would repot it for months before he got sick again, and I just never got around to it until he’d been gone for about a month.

It holds a place of honour in his old living room, where I can see it, and talk to it every day, and I hope to be able to do so for many years to come.
