Blue Monday Wonder

Nice to be back with Sally and her Blue Monday friends. She will definitely keep you entertained at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com.
I have had this Passion plant for several years. I begin to wonder if it would ever bloom. This year is the first time it survived and bloomed. I was so thrilled as I think the blue flowers are so pretty and different.

It grew like crazy and almost covered the front of my house.
Another view with some more of the blooms. They just show up a few at the time.


In the past years, this little worm stripped it to nothing and killed it. For some reason, it did not attack this year. I have been so thrilled to finally see my "Passion" bloom.

Your passion plant is absolutely beautiful. I don't think I've ever seen such wonderful blossoms. I'm glad the worm to the year off, and hope it has permanently retired.

I have never seen a passion flower but it's so unique and lovely. Happy that the little worm let you enjoy it this year.

Dearest LV,

Glad that your passion flower did finally bloom. Guess that after the hot and dry summer it now became active. They are so lovely! We had them in blue, white and red but none is left. Georgia is too harsh and the soil is not very fertile and poor water holding capacity.
Love to you,

Mariette
