New First-time Bloomer – Hoya halophila (IML 1116)

I received Hoya halophila from SRQ Hoyas in the summer of 2012, and am now blooming it for the first time some 18 months later.  Like so many Hoyas it started out slow, and then picked up steam growing phenomenally well over the past few months.  Here is a photo of the buds:
