Passiflora: Mother Nature goes Tie Dye

Episcopal Church Beaverton Oregon © Copyright 1992-1993 Philip Vassar

Maypop whatever you want to call it, I don't think there is another flower with so much going on in a single bloom. A perrenial favourite it is cultivated world wide, produces a fragrant bloom, edible fruit and some people smoke them as in a joint. Don't ask me some people will smoke banana peels. Flowers are an easy mark for colour. Picture has been de-speckled and contrast adjusted along with some sharpening but the colour has only a slight gamma correction 1.21. Interestingly enough the passion flower was named for it's association to Christ ten of his apostles, the chalice, his wounds and crown of thorns. Originally from the New world found in both North and South America. This plant was growing in a local church garden.
