This tipsy pot says it all!
I hope all of you are enjoying the sun-filled days of summer!
The Passion Vine is one of my favorite tropicals! Here is a little interesting tidbit regarding the Passion Flower:
The plants were given the name Passionflower or Passion vine because the floral parts were once said to represent aspects of the Christian crucifixion story, sometimes referred to as the Passion. The 10 petal-like parts represent Jesuss disciples, excluding Peter and Judas; the 5 stamens the wounds Jesus received; the knob-like stigmas the nails; the fringe the crown of thorns.----The Wildflower Center.
