Passionate for Flowers

We were invited to lunch yesterday by an old schoolmate of Ron's in his hometown of Wolfville.


David (the schoolmate) and his wife Anne are avid gardeners and they grow this Passion Flower.


Of course it is 'seasonal' here, meaning it must be 'taken in' in the winter and re-planted in the spring. 

Just look at that blossom!
And we left David and Anne's with our own plant!

Thanks you two!!

  2. They really are the most unusual and rather complex looking flowers. I left mine out too long and the frost killed it one year. Lovely photos.

    1. I figured they had to be 'exotic' and wouldn't have a prayer surviving here all year round! Can't believe how complicated the blossom is......probably for survival reasons.

    1. Yes, and now I will add this one to the few others we have to be 'brought in' before the snow flies.

    1. I know exactly where I'll get it to grow/climb next summer too! Too late this year to do much other than adjust to it's new home.

    1. As long as I take it in before the frost hits our shores then it should do OK here. I have full confidence in this very foreign looking plant......wonder what the other plants will think of it?

  9. That's so unusual, it doesn't look real, it looks like from Dr. Seuss or something. I know it's real, btw.
