When i don't have much flower photos to post, i just post my hoyas flowering that month. It is also another way of documenting my hoyas in bloom. I actually make monthly and yearly comparisons. That is also the reason i post the monthly blooms in monthly Facebook albums, another way of collecting data. Moreover, i am trully flaunting them, LOLs.
