I have so many blog posts in draft form, but they need more polishing than I have time for tonight. *sigh*

So I thought I'd share a photo of one of my favourite things :)

Hoya Carnosa

This beautiful Hoya Carnosa is growing on my back balcony. I adore its waxy texture, starburst shape, sweet scent and velvety petals - truly a feast for all of the senses!

Hoya Carnosa is my favourite variety (we always had a plant growing next to my parents' front verandah), but there are many different Hoya species available in a wide range of colours and shapes for both the flowers and leaves. If you're interested, you can have a look at the Hooked on Hoya Database and the International Hoya Association's photo gallery for some examples :)
