Nice plants, and great pictures too. You should be a nature photographer, or are you?

I do not have a photography gene. I have more pictures that I have no idea what I was shooting than I can tell what they are. Glad you like the pics.

I have always loved these flowers.

pretty evey
I have a passion flower plant in a pot that is growing up on 3 copper poles. lol it has grown so fast I call it my "passion gone wild" plant. The little tendrils keep trying to attach to my screenroom

Cabin fever - my flowers last about 1 to 2 days . sometimes I even get the little passion fruits

Karla is right, 1 or 2 days is all these beauties last. There are one or two fruits on this vine. I never did care for anything that had passion fruit juice in it, so I am guessing I won't much care for the fruit itself. Plenty of squirrels here to eat them.

It is one of those I didn't know better so in the pot with the copper pipes it went I thought I was going to have this nice little vine and it would look so pretty against the copper well so much for that idea
lol it won't slow down lol I can't wait till I have to move it in the screenroom once it gets cold and there is a possible freeze lol maybe it needs to winter down at your house evey
