Default Passionflower

Though very beautiful, this is a weed and is not grown at homes:

Beautiful shots, Raghu. These flowers always intrigued me, so alien looking!

Wonderful shots of a very impressive plant.
You are really happy guy to have such nice flowers in your garden, so you have decorative blooms and delicious fruits from the same plant

Cheers,

Stefan

Stunning shots Raghu, well done. Send the plants over here, people would pay a fortune for those. Do you get the fruit as well??

Nice weeds Raghu

As Diane says, people would pay a lot for those here in Europe, with care and patience we too can produce the fruit

@ dropmyload, bet your passion fruits aren't weeds

Thanks, everyone, for looking and for the nice comments. Sujan, your flower has rich color. Was it raining or were you watering the (plants on the) fence? The water drops effect is also great.

It had been raining so I got the raindrops.

Actually, there are no fruits...its a creeper I planted because I love the flowers. I get a few small hummingbirds flying in for nectar every now and then.

This is one of the first photos I took when I got my FZ38...
