Blossoms, buds, new vines abound on this plant.
It cascades off the trellis in layers, falling in abandon on vine branch after vine branch. When these plants decide to be proficient, they really go after it. To give you the full effect, I'm just going to have to show you lots of pictures. Here goes, one after another. I just went crazy taking photographs of this beauty. It is showing off right now and who can resist a plant that has to show off.
Talk about passion in the garden, this passion vine is dong its best. Striking three-lobed leaves just never stop and on each stalk is a blossom and more buds.

After two days of rain the plants were sparkling with raindrops the next morning. Out in the garden and here is this show-off plant still abounding in blossoms and beauty.
I've tried to take pictures of this plant from every which-a-way to give you the idea of what's going on in this part of the garden. Passion is the only way to describe it. Now enjoy these last few and breathe in the life and joy of a passion flower in bloom.
