I posted this photograph in a number of Facebook groups this afternoon and decided to share it in a blog as well.

We have a cold and windy afternoon in Kentlands. Enjoy the holiday weekend!

They are very distinct looking flowers arent' they!  And the fruits are worth eating too.

Hello Roy - while you may be experiencing cooler weather your photo practically shouts that spring will be here shortly.

I love it when the purple passion flowers in my yard bloom.  They usually begin in April and last through October.

I have never seen this kind of flower anywhere. What an intriguing configuration.

Now that is a very different blossom. I can't say I have seen anything close to it before

I actually grew this plant one year and was so amazed at all the delicate and intricate details in the blossoms. Thanks for  posting this, Roy.

Roy, I do not know if I ever saw a Passion Flower up close before.  It sort of looks like a  beautiful piece of crocheted art work.  So fancy  and gentle; seems to have its own story.
