Hoya rubida’s flowers have Silver Linings

This is a first time bloomer for me so right now it my favorite hoya…see how that works?  As I watched the buds maturing into flowers I noticed they were a rich rich pink almost red.   I knew they would please me with a very unique look when they finally decided to reveal their beauty.  I did my best to capture the silvery border that  enclosed the color of the flower by showing the rear view.  This is an absolutely stunning flower if you have attention to detail.
