Good Morning Dear Friends, I just had to post this photo of my Freeway! As you may know, one of my most favorite plants are the Hoya. My dear husband's stepmother Georgia sent this plant to me about 10 years ago as a clipping through the mail. I have watched it grow and grow, but up until we moved into this new home, and rested it in it's new place, it had never flowered. Now, it has flowers all over it! I have posted pictures of the flowers before on this blog. The other night, I asked my 6'1" hubby to stand by it, so that I could take a picture with perspective on the size of the plant....well, he had just gotten home from work and wanted to take a shower before pictures....(you know the story). Since I am rather an impatient personality...I enlisted my pal Freeway to help! She's camera-shy, also a bit impatient. So I had to place her by the plant and said,"Stay!" Well, just look at the poor dear creature! She has enough trouble just walking on these floors, asking her to stay in this awkward position was just a little too much for her!! I was so focused on the plant...I didn't even realize how unhappy she looked! When I uploaded the picture onto my computer screen and saw the look on her face...her splayed back legs! It's a wonder she could even sit up at all!!! I had to run into the kitchen and give her a treat for putting up with all of my shinanigans! My husband said, "Oh yea...she looks happy alright, just like when I used to give her lawn tractor rides." It's true...my husband used to put her on the lawn tractor and ride her around the block! He was convinced that she liked it! One day, I snapped a photograph of her taking a ride. When my hubby saw it he realized that she didn't care for the ride at all. Her ears were down, her eyes had a look of sheer terror, her toes were spread out just trying to hang on. He never took her on a ride again. But....she does like to follow the tractor around the yard while he is mowing. Poor Darling!
