Don't they have the most beautiful blooms ... they just don't seem real. Passionfruit is one of my favourite flavours too.

This unusual flower is perfect, isn't it? It sure is hard to understand how and why it evolved this way.

That is the most detail I have ever seen on a flower. Amazing.

This flower is so beautiful it's almost a festival. Nature has outdone herself with this one. This is a fabulous shot - quite worth a frame on the wall.

That is a stunning photo. We used to have passion fruit growing all over the place when we lived in what was Rhodesia then. Problem was the snakes also seemed to like hiding in it!!

At first sight I took it for one of those fancy fruit cakes...

I always try to imagine what God was thinking when he made something this complex and beautiful as a plant that a lot of people don't even pay attention to.
