Some Buds!

I was going to call this post "No Peduncles" but, in fact, that's only true for the retusa.
I'm not going to name this one because I'm so superstitious it's not going to flower if I do!

Bella opening sequence

Ever since my Hoya carnosa flowered in May, I haven't seen one peep of a flower from any of my plants (and I've been looking!). So I was so happy to see buds forming and staying on my Bella. I felt even happier when the plant decided to open bud by bud (and I'd figured out how to use the Macro on my camera). It does smell, very faintly.
