Last year a friend from College Station in Texas send us some cuttings of Hoyas. The first one already flowers. We call it ‘Pride of Texas’.
Some of the best garden pictures are made just after a rain shower. This certainly applies for flowers. The rain seems to contribute to the brightness of the colors. But this also depends on time and the angle towards to light source (sun). Etc. etc. These two images were shot at around 9 AM and the difference in color has all to do with the angle from which the photograph was taken.
