One of my favorite vines

Good afternoon Folks ~ I hope you are having a nice Sunday. It is very hot and humid here.  It is 3:30 p.m. est, 91 degrees and with the heat/humidity index feels like it is 102.  We were out this morning sweating buckets and it was absolutely miserable out.  Sheesh!  We will be so glad when summer is over, but for us that won’t be until sometime in October, if we are lucky.

While we were out working, a loaf of garlic/herb bread was baking in the bread machine.  It smelled so wonderful in here when we came in.  In a little while I’m going to get dough going in the machine for pizza tonight.  I’ve got to get the Italian sausage cooked and then make the sauce from scratch too.

When I came out here to my little space this morning, I noticed what looked like a book laying under my heart pattern pages.  I lifted the pages and this is what I saw underneath.

I was thrilled. DH got it at a yard sale he stopped at yesterday for 50 cents.  It is a wonderful book.

Now, on to the passion vine flowers.  I can’t quit taking pictures of these blooms.  They are so amazing, the colors wonderful and the scent is sweet.

The tendrils grasp onto anything and everything.  This particular vine is growing up one of my dwarf white bauhinia trees.

Wow, you are a great photographer. What a lovely garden. We are so hot here in Houston that few things are blooming. You have lots of things blooming in Florida.

I always think they are the most amazing looking vines. There are just so many textures and shapes to one bloom. Beautiful.

Oh my gosh...I have never seen anything like that Passion vine flower. It looks like it's part alien and part whirligig...how cool is that!! It is really beautiful and look at all the details and colors...absolutely amazing. I wish we could all smell what you smell! That was such a nice surprise from your hubby...looks like a good read. Enjoy your book and your garden!

Passionflowers must have the most intricate blossoms of any plant. Fascinating and beautifully photogenic too.
