Passion Flowers, that is.
It seems to be a small theme, this year.
First, our daughter got one, for her new/old garden.
She texted me this picture.
It's the purple variety...but, a bit different than some I've seen.
So, when we were down there, she and I took a trip...two whole blocks...
to the local garden center, to get one for me.
No purple left.
So, I got a Scarlet Passion Vine.
I like it.
It's not as hardy, though. I may have to treat it like an annual.
Then...the other night, when I was doing the evening Garden Walk,
I noticed a bloom, on the fence in the Fenced Yard.
I'd left this vine, when I cut things back on this fence.
I'm glad I did.
Turns out, it's a Wild Passion Vine.
The blooms are only the size of a quarter.
But, they're very interesting.
That vine has been on the fence for a couple years.
I never noticed any blooms.
Don't you love GOOD garden surprises?
And, I guess you could say we have more results of
Yep...this year's crop, is showing up.
Hope you have a good weekend.
We're forecast MORE rain.
