A Hoya for Tuesday

Jude, the Macro Queen, quite approved of my house leek photos on Sunday and said that I should take macro shots more often. I used to try occasionally, but get irritated by the persistent Devon breeze and getting the right light. This evening I had a try in the garden, but failed and then I remembered the wax flower is blooming. Well it has one little bouquet of very tiny flowerlets.

It’s really interesting to see them close up, they look like fur fabric, who knew?

  1. “Who knew?” Is always a question I ask when I get a good clear closeup or look at something through a magnifying glass. You have such a way with words too – “fur fabric” is exactly right. A lovely photo – and Jude is right. As always!

  2. Wow – they are so cool close up like this – and how fun that you are getting better and better (awesome I’d say) – πŸ˜‰

  3. I never thought of Hoya growing in the UK! I have a couple of “towers” growing on my side patio, but at the moment there’s nary a blossom in sight………..and mine are a pale pink, whereas yours seem to be white/ivory?

  4. I see a macro series in your immediate future! Very nice. Goes well with the week’s “details” (WPC). Always good to be steered in a different direction.

  5. I thought they were something that had been crafted until I saw the photo larger! I always love close ups of flowers/leaves with water droplets.

I would love to hear from you . . .
