I photographed the buds above a few days ago. The tiny little buds have progressed to the next stage:
And a new fuzzy bud cluster has started:
A full view of both clusters, different stages.
An older photo, showing what the flower cluster will look like when fully opened.
The scent the flowers emit is ... very strong. Early mornings it fills the house. The petals are fuzzy -- covered in hair. The middles are hard, waxy and ooze a thick liquid that drips down the leaves and if I'm honest, is quite a mess.
Not sure why I'm so fascinated by these flowers ...
I've got 4 orchids blooming at the moment as well, but the hoya buds have me captivated.
