For today’s challenge, I turned the beautiful passion flower I painted last summer into black and white. In Slovenia, we know passion fruit as a popular ornamental plant with beautiful exotic flowers. They say that there are about 500 species of passion fruit. Originates from North, Central and South America. In subtropical and tropical regions it is also cultivated today. Up to 6 meters tall shrubbery climber has very wide roots, from which grow many thin, twisted, green stems. The leaves are strongly divided, petioled, three-lobed, slightly serrated at the edges. Leafs sprout from the leaves of large leaves and flowers about 8 cm in diameter from the leaves of smaller leaves. The calyx leaves are oblong, ovoid, pointed, fused into the tube at the bottom. The petals are white, red and purple; surrounded by purple, inside almost black petals, which have 5 stamens. An eggplant strawberry ripens in the autumn, from which it grows about 6 cm large edible fruit yellow-red, full of seeds.
Do you know passion?

Nice photo, I have a passionfruit vine that has passionfruit. Passion fruit drops down and it is nice to eat with ice cream. They have flowers first, like your passionflower.
Thanks for watching and kind comment, dear Pamela…some species are also toxic
Thanks for that information, I never realised there were toxic passionfruit.
So original shot made in very elegant manner!!! The flower looks really amazing!!!

This flower always makes me enjoy tenderness and beauty.

Do you like handball? Slovenia played against Spain yesterday
Thanks for watching and kind comment, dear friend…i watched the match on tv and spain was a better opponent and she just won …. tomorrow i wish her good luck in the finals tomorrow against Croatia
It will be a great final. Croatia, Slovenia and Serbia are always good at a sports team. They always play fine Basketball or Handball or waterpolo
I agree with you …. today I’m going to cheer for Croatia (you know, sometimes we lived in a common country even though we are not in the best of relations now) I’m just not sure they can beat Spain … whatever better wins
I know this plant. It looks better in colors.
Thank you for your visit and nice comment, dear Vidocka….i agree with you that in colors it is much nicer
I don’t like the pictures in black and white
The color pictures are much nicer to me too
I totally agree with you
Then we have the same affection … nice

I try to keep my posts and pictures diverse
well you did a great job of diverse images with this one!
I am happy for your kind comments, my friend
Passion fruit? Is this the flower of the passion fruit you say? Hmm… so you mean you have passion fruit there?
Thank you for your visit and nice comment, my friend….nice to see you after a long time …. it is a passion flower and grows with us just by the sea
hmm.. I have never seen the flower of a passion fruit. Is your passion flower has fruits?
From the flower comes the fruit just rightly I do not know if it is edible ….
by the way, thanks.. yes it has been a long time, it is nice to see you too, although I still miss the others here.
There are quite a few who have gone missing just like you, dear friend
yes I miss them actually. I don’t know what happened.
There are always some problems, but they probably got tired
I am not so fond of black and white and knowing how a passion flower looks I prefer it in colour. I had this creeper and we used to get loads of passion fruits.
Thanks for viewing and a friendly comment, my friend….i also like the color pictures much more …. a little change is welcome
That is a wonderful flower and so dramatic in black and white
Thanks for watching and kind comment, dear Sandra
