Passion Flower


If you care to join us acknowledging our blessings go here: Blue Panther
IF you CLICK on nothing else I post, do so on this flower and you won't be sorry you took the extra time!

Malyss and Kathy identified this flower for me on Friday. I hunted it down again late Friday morning and got a better shot so am using it up for my post for Blog Your Blessing Sunday also. These two friends have been my blessing this week in helping me to identify it. (See Friday's post and comments.) I remembered the general area I photographed it in but didn't remember where and Friday morning, I tried to find it and couldn't. I gave it another try when I went out again after retrieving more batteries for camera and found it closer to home than I originally remembered --there it was hiding among other flowers and more of the same kind that hadn't opened up yet! I was reading Friday afternoon that a bee or other insect has to pollinate it in order for it to open up. Guess that makes it another blessing that I found it huh?

I don't know which of the three photos I like best. They are all so sharp and I love the color of the flower and the detail.

What a beautiful looking flower! I do not think I've seen one quite like it before. Have a wonderful week ahead my friend, and yes clicking to enlarge the pic was definitely worth it :)

How delightful to find these additional 'blessings' when you went looking. I do so love serendipity ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

It's really a beautiful flower! I posted a picture of one on my blog not too long ago. It looks just a little different from yours.

I love the way blogger communication works and the way people share their knowledge freely. It's a beautiful thing. Thanks for introducing me to the passion flower!

So what does PERBS stand for? I've tried to figure it out but it escapes me!

The flower is amazing, Paulie! You could have used it for an odd shot. WOW! Sorry I didn't have time to participate. Too much going on. I will post all later...

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
