Those are very pretty! I especially how you have it growing up the wall. Aren't all Hoya blooms just gorgeous? Simple but elegant.

RE: hoyas

I believe it is a xmas cactus,it gets red flowers,lives outside year round here.I also have others here and there in different colors.You guys have good eyes,i had to go back to look and see what you were talking about.

That rack the Hoyas are growing on is one of those wire shelves from a closet,i just put the lip of it on the wall,i also have other pieces of it on my other fence on the othe side of the house.

They make great places for plants.You know the saying "waste not,want not".

Lovely Hoyas, Kathi! You can really tell from their leaves (and blooms) that they're getting awesome light where you have them!

The first one looks like Hoya carnosa and the second one is obovata, if I'm not mistaken. Their flowers are similar, but also brilliantly different. (Funny how the more time you spend looking at something the more obvious its subtle characteristics are.)

Here's a really super nice photo taken of the two flowers right next to each other:
