Thursday, June 4
I'm grateful to have been invited to join Tell Me Thursday... about Wordless Wednesday. I really, really try to be true to Wordless Wednesday and not say much, but sometimes, I can't help it and just have to say something!
Join in the fun each week and stay true to your Wordless Wednesday, then come back on Thursdays and tell us about it.
So here it was, yesterday...
A lot of you were interested in what kind of flower/plant it was and honestly... me too! I had no idea, except that I was surprised by the beautiful little flowers on what I thought was an ugly plant.
Turns out, it is a Hoya. The picture I took yesterday is of the flowers on the bottom left, there are about a half dozen of these all over the plant. Hoyas are also called wax plants due to the waxy look of the flowers. It is a vine and has tried to take over the tree where it is hung. The vines are woody, like a rope. They are tropical plants, but don't let that discourage you if you'd like to get one. I've read that they can be grown most anywhere with the ideal conditions. This one started from a cutting (in Wisconsin) from a friend, whose was from a friend, whose was from a friend's grandmother. Cool, eh? It's at least 25-30 years, possibly older. If you'd like to read more about them, you can search for Hoya on the Internet in your fave search engine, go here or here. (I have no affiliations with either of these links, I've linked for informational purposes only)
Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to more Wordless Wednesday and Tell Me Thursdays, how about you?
