A Friday Flower For You

Look what's dangling over my driveway this morning...

...a little bit of heaven spilling over from my neighbor's yard.

The passion flower, named for the Passion of Jesus (that is, his suffering and death on the cross), will always remind me of my dear friend and prayer partner who recently moved to New York City. She was so struck by this wild vine the first time she saw its blooms. {Oh, how I miss her!}

I like the tight little squiggles almost as much as the bloom...

...but no, the bloom is spectacular!

Have a glorious day!


  1. I had no idea that was the origin of the flower's name! It really is fantastic...

  2. Wowee that is pretty. I've never seen anything like it. Love the squigglies too.

  3. We're growing the same vine over our trellis in the backyard. I agree...it is marvelous! LTM

  4. I love it when God shows off :)

  5. God is The Master Gardener, isn't He? And YOU are quite the photographer! Wow!

  6. Such a gorgeous flower! How can anyone doubt the existence of a Higher Power when you see something like this?! Adore your lovely little world, so happy to find you and be your newest follower!

  7. Seriously, that is one of the most beautiful flowers I've ever seen!
