I've been thinking of you, Kathleen. Glad to hear you haven't had damage. I keep thinking, floods are bad enough on level ground--but on mountain passes with gravity...scary! Your Passion Flower is incredible--especially through your camera lens.


Kathleen girl !!!!
The Maypop is stunning and so much so because of your skill with photography : ) I have a long way to go yet .. actually I am falling behind because we are in the middle of way too much .. renos on the two bathrooms and planing the reno for the kitchen .. I think you get what I am going through ? and a huge bout of sciatica OUCH !
My poor garden is missing me, and I it!
Thank you so much for your sweet compliments, I appreciate it !
I have a special peony and Spring bulbs to plant when they arrive so I have to rest and get over this pain from H*** !! haha
So glad you have not been involved with the flooding issues .. I'm so sorry for the people that have had to deal with it.
Your pictures are gorgeous and so is the vine .. fingers crossed it WILL survive the winter and grow beautifully again!!
Joy : )

So glad to hear you are safe & sound and your garden and photography are as beautiful as ever!


Absolutely gorgeous Kathleen - I can't wait to see it in person on Saturday. So very happy that you had no flooding issues!


I recently saw this in bloom near my daughter's new apartment, and it was gorgeous, and deliciously fragrant. I have other kind here, and it has not given me blooms in years. I tore it out, but it has other ideas. I keep hoping it will bloom again.


I am glad to hear that you aren't underwater. What an interesting and unusual flower these always are. It may not make it through winter but at least it is going out in a blaze of glory.
