  9. I didn't see the flower of a passion fruit and I also didn't know that it's very beautiful. Now I learned today that aside from being a very good fruit it also has a beautiful flower ^_^

  10. Is this the flower to that luscious tasting passion fruit? If so, it doesn't surprise me.
    Anything that tastes so wonderful should have a blossom just like that!

    My Saturday flowers are here:
