photoblog image Red Hoya

Red Hoya

A red hoya, as promised earlier in the week.  Usually each individual floret of a hoya has a drop of liquid.

 

My camera has not been working well and I have to send it off.  I've not had a sharp shot in a long time.

Looks like a sugar frosting,Mary. Should be sticking from a cocktail glass!

Difficult to read your text, Mary. I can see white text on a very light grey background. The image itself looks lovely; little sign of any lack of focus.
Mary MacADNski: I could not figure out how to fix the text after I pressed the wrong button.

I'm with Alan on the text, Mary, but the image I can see perfectly fine! Sharp as a tack. And it looks like it was touched by frost, but surely not.
Mary MacADNski: I could not figure out how to get the text back to normal. This variety is called silver pink, I believe.

They look like little stars. Hope your camera will feel 'better' soon.
Mary MacADNski: I hope the cost does not give me a heart attack.
I love the soft white edges on the leafs, like it is silky
Mary MacADNski: I believe these are called silver pink.

Love the velvety goodness!
Mary MacADNski: They are stunning in real life.
Hope you get your camera back fully restored to its proper performance!
Mary MacADNski: I am afraid to send it away and find it will cost a fortune to fix.
Your Red Hoya is magnificent and your photo is perfect....perhaps you should not fix your camera if this is its resultgrin....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: It is not working well with far away shots.
What a pretty flower, Mary. I don't think I've ever seen these before. Great capture
