(and sometimes the beast!)




Two very different flowers from the same genus, passiflora.
The red one is growing wild in my daughter's garden and is constantly threatened with certain death by her fiance but so far it's been spared; fortunately, because I think it is quite stunning. They've not had any fruit but an article I found indicated it should fruit. The white one was growing on my fence and is typical of the flowers on the garden variety passionfruit vine, in this case bearing a large yellow fruit which was delicious. Hey! just noticed the bug.
