I've only seen passionfruit growing in my own yard. It grows like a weed all over the yard, since the fruit doesn't always ripen in time for picking before the frost sets in in this climate, and the fruit is fun to throw at others so the seeds manage to get everywhere. It is like a spoiled child though, and gets to grow almost anywhere it wants to in the yard.
This year, we had a special treat. We had albino passionflower! I didn't know that was possible. It did not last long, so I am glad I got a picture of it.
I did not plant zinnias this year, or much of anything else, and am grateful for the ones that did come back.
I found this purple bear in the quilt cabinet when I was cleaning it out. I like how he matches with my current project. Wait, is that a new project?
Even though my garden this year is weedy and neglected, the butterfly still enjoys spending time in it.
A better shot of the markings on the butterfly.
Another passionflower. They bloom all summer.
Thus ends the July picture show. I talked about cleaning the quilt cabinet earlier, so I figured I should show you. I finally got smart and folded the quilts so they would cover the whole length and width of the cabinet. Because they are spread out so thin, you can't really see and become intrigued by the piecing. You can just see color.
It is an antique as evidenced by the cord that holds the glass in the upper section down. It is impossible to take a picture of the cabinet without a reflection. I made those curtains for the room a long time ago and I am still very happy with them. The top shelf holds CDs, the middle shelf is my pencil sharpener collection, the bottom shelf has the wall quilts.
